Smalley is a small Parish, long and narrow in shape and divided in two by the road that runs its its length. On either side of the road there are a network of footpaths that cover the whole Parish, a clear reflection how people move between villages and places of work
We have now added a free book, detailing those footpaths, that are nowadays a great way to explore the countryside and get some exercise

Smalley was mentioned in a Charter of 1009 by King Æþelræd Unræd ("Ethelred the Unready") relating to a manor known as Westune (modern-day Weston-on-Trent) which land included the areas now known as Shardlow, Great Wilne, Church Wilne, Crich, Smalley, Morley, Weston and Aston-on-Trent. Under this charter Ethelred gave his minister, Morcar, some exemptions from tax.
Smalley's Parish Church of St John the Baptist was built in the late eighteenth century on the site of a much earlier church. The transepts were added in 1844 and the unusual and almost detached tower was added some years later. A 7th century Saxon Cross is part of the porch.
The bell tower was built to house five bells donated by Rev. Charles Kerry and the chime of five bells is said to be the heaviest in England with the largest bell weighing over 2 tons.
Its pub, The Bell Inn, was voted "Best Derbyshire Pub of 2006".
