The most horrible story is the father who decapitated his illegitimate son in Smithy woods down at the bottom of Derbyshire Lane.
There were also a lot of accidents with carts because it is a steep road. On the pleasanter side though there is a Turner Water colour.
and apparently there was a pipe organ works at the bottom at one time.
And quite possibly the oldest Working Men's club in the area which got turned into a Sunday school for 40 years and then back into a club.
During the war it had a number of bombs fall on it.
A lot of things happening for what is not a long piece of the lane. The whole lane (old name Dyche Lane) goes through Graves Park and on to Coal Aston and then Dronfield.
