Matlock Bridge

Matlock Bridge

Having moved to Lums Hill Rise in Matlock, Derbyshire, I have been curious to know the history of this limited area between the turnpike and Asker Lane and the derivation of this name. It is interesting that the land was once owned by Peter Nightingale (1737-1803) borders a turnpike and, nearby, lead was transported and smelted, for all those facts were true of our previous house in Lea Bridge, near Matlock.
