ECKINGTON is a township, head of a petty sessional division and extensive and widely scattered parish, with a station named Eckington, on the Midland railway at Renishaw, about one mile south-east of Eckington church, 151 miles from London, 6¼ north-east from Chesterfield and 7 south-east from Sheffield, in the North Eastern division of the county, hundred of Scarsdale, Chesterfield union and county court district, rural deanery of Staveley, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. The streets are lighted with gas by the Eckington and Mosborough Gas Co. The church of S.S. Peter and Paul is a building of stone in the Norman style, the oldest part dating from the time of Stephen : it consists of chancel, clerestoried nave, aisles and an embattled western tower of Norman date with dwarf spire, and containing a clock and 6 bells: in the church is a curious hagioscope, and in one of the windows of the aisle are the words, "Roger Darci," supposed to date from 1548: the churchyard was closed for burials by Order in Council, 26th March, 1878: there are 550 sittings. The register dates from the year 1558, but is deficient and mutilated to 1568, as well as between 1575-8 and 1590-5, but from this date the entries run on uninterruptedly. The living is a rectory, formerly consolidated with that of Killamarsh and the vicarage of Ridgeway, but separated by an Order in Council, January 4, 1843, tithe rent-charge £367 16s. 11d. net yearly value £554, including 406 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Crown, and held since 1843 by the Rev. Edmund Hiley Bucknall-Estcourt M.A. of Merton College, Oxford. There is a Wesleyan chapel, erected by his family to the memory of the late George Wells esq. There are also Free Methodist and Primitive Methodist chapels. The Eckington Cemetery, on the Sheffield road, was opened in October, 1877, and contains about 6 acres, divided into separate parts for the Established Church, Catholics and Dissenters ; it is under the control of a Burial Board of 9 members. The charities amount to £80 yearly, principally for clothing and bread. The chief local handicrafts are the making of scythes, sickles, shovels, spade shafts, spades and nails and penknives ; there is an iron foundry and saw mills, besides extensive collieries. The Market Hall is a plain but substantial edifice of brick and stone, erected by Mr. Joseph Barber, and opened in July, 1879: it contains several sale shops, over which are assembly rooms, fitted with a stage, and having attached ante-rooms: the assembly rooms are used for concerts and entertainments, and will seat 1,500 persons; the large market hall, which is 75 feet long by 66 wide is now used as furniture stores. Here is also an open market, situate at the corner of Peveril road; markets are held on Friday. There is a County Police station, and a force of 1 superintendent, 1 sergeant and 3 constables. Several Roman roads traverse the parish. Renishaw Hall is the seat of Sir George Reresby Sitwell bart. F.S.A. who is lord of the manor and principal landowner. The chief crops are wheat, oats, barley, hay, turnips and potatoes. The area is 7,125 acres; rateable value, £41,911 ; the population of the parish in 1871 was 7,808, and in 1881, 11,094.

SPINK HILL, 1 mile east of the station, is a bold height, and here is the Catholic college of Mount St. Mary and the mission Catholic church of the Immaculate Conception erected in 1844; it has a tower and spire and several stained windows: the Rev. George Ernest Lund S.J. is in charge of the mission.
Parish Clerk, George Stevenson.

Mosborough, 1 mile north from Eckington church, is a township, and was a Roman settlement. The Mission Church of St. Mark, a chapel of ease to Eckington, and erected. at a cost of £3,000, is a building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave of two bays, vestries and an embattled tower, containing a clock: it will seat 300 persons; the Rev. Seymour Stookes M.A. of Edinburgh University, has been curate in charge since 1889. There is a Wesleyan chapel and Primitive Methodist chapels here and at Holbrook. Sickles are made here.

Troway is a township, 2½ miles west ; it was a Roman settlement. Here is a colliery. The inhabitants are chiefly occupied in farming and mining. There is a Wesleyan chapel at Marsh Lane, 1 mile west, and a Free Methodist chapel here.
