Pilsley is a small village in Derbyshire, England. It is close to Chatsworth and most of it belongs to the Chatsworth House estate.

The village

The village has a primary school which was built by Joseph Paxton and extended in 1950 (kitchen), 1969, 1998 and 2002. Many of the pupils are the children of Chatsworth estate employees. The Wesleyan Chapel was converted into a computer room for the school in 2004. There is also a pub and a post office.

Pilsley is also the location of the Chatsworth Farm Shop, a business selling estate and British produce, which was established in the former shire horse stables in 1977 and was employing over 100 people in 2005. A 90 seat restaurant was added in 2004. [ [http://www.chatsworth-house.co.uk/shopping/farmshop.htm Chatsworth Farm Shop] ]

Brief history

Pilsley is mentioned in the Domesday Book as one of the manors belonging to Walter D'Aincourt."Domesday Book: A Complete Translation". London: Penguin, 2003. p.750 ISBN 0-14-143994-7]

Prior to 1800, Pilsley was an agricultural settlement and consisted of Upper Pilsley and Nether Pilsley. Few of the houses from that period still exist, these being some of on the corner of Station Road and Sitwell Grange Lane near the Primary School; others around Barlow Bank, Barlow Bank Farm and Grange Farm in Upper Pilsley near the site of the village well.

These houses are made from locally quarried coal-measure sandstone which soft and contains a high percentage of iron. This quarry no longer exists, but was north of Upper Pilsley.
