A message from Smalley Parish Council - “Smalley Parish Council are unable to have the hanging baskets watered by a contractor as intended. We are appealing for any residents who have a basket adjacent to their property and suitable hosepipe, to water it. SPC are trying to resolve the issue, but the watering is quite urgent in the current heatwave. Thank you.”
Being safe in your Community
The following guidance has been released and residents may find it useful. Click here to view the document in full.
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.
