Some history of Melbourne

More information on Melbourne to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Melbourne from another page. As the website is constructed it is easier to create links as they crop up rather than retracing steps later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Melbourne. I have uploaded some photographs and newspaper article and will return to this page when possible. There is material on other places in Derbyshire - click here for the county page where I hope you will find something of interest.

Quotation

A Halted Mail Coach by Henry Thomas Alken [The British Postal Museum and Archive]

"At each Inn on the road I a welcome could find; At the Fleece I'd my skin full of ale; The Two Jolly Brewers were just to my mind; At the Dolphin I drink like a wheale. Tom Tun at the Hogshead sold pretty good stuff; They'd capital flip at the Boar; And when at the Angel I'd tippled enough, I went to the Devil for more."
Mail Coach Guard

Newspaper Articles

"A very serious accident occurred on Saturday afternoon to the wife of James Robey, market gardener, Melbourne. Mrs. Robey was driving the pony and cart to the field, when in turning a sharp corner in Cockshott Lane the cart overturned, and pitched Mrs. Robey out, the pony rolling on her. She sustained serious injuries, being greatly disfigured. Aid was near at hand, and the woman was conveyed home, where her injuries were attended to by Mr. Knipe."
"Fatal Accident at Diseworth"
