Some history of Shardlow

More information on Shardlow to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Shardlow from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for detailed information on Shardlow. I have placed a few old newspaper articles, along with a few photographs.

"On Saturday, about noon, a distressing accident, by burning, happened to Mrs. Toplis, wife of Mr. John Toplis, farm labourer, which terminated fatally. She was engaged in preparing dinner upon a table near to the fire. There was not any person in the house at the time of the accident, except the deceased, but it is supposed that she fainted and fell; her clothing coming into contact with the fire. A youth employed by Mr. Hallady, bricklayer, entered the house about one o'clock, and found it full of suffocating smoke, and the poor woman lying upon the floor in a most deplorable condition. The deceased lingered in great agony about three hours, and then expired. Mr. Coroner Whiston held an inquest on Monday evening, when the jury gave a verdict in accordance with the circumstances, viz., "Died from burning and suffocation."

Unable to release himself from the straps, Jones fell with the pole and was badly hurt. He was attended by Dr. H. C. Bell, of Shardlow, and then taken to Derbyshire Infirmary, where his condition was reported today to be "about the same."
