SHARDLOW is a village, in the parish of Wiln and Shardlow, in the hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, seven miles S.E. from Derby; situate upon the banks of the river Trent, over which is a good stone bridge, forming the communication with Leicestershire; it was built by the Cavendish family, from which it takes its name. This place derives considerable importance from being a station for the trans-shipment of goods upon the Trent and Mersey canal, on the banks of which are erected warehouses. At Wiln mills is manufactured a particular sort of cotton yarn, known by the name of 'Wiln yarn', for which there is generally a considerable demand: at this place is a large poor-house. In 1821 the parish contained 993 inhabitatants, and in 1831, 1,091.

ASTON-UPON-TRENT is a parish and village, in the same hundred as Shardlow, two miles from that place, and about six and a half from Derby. The hall of Aston, a substantial mansion, the seat of Edward Anthony Holden, Esq. is in the village. At one time this place must have been of much more importance than at the present period, for we find that in 1256, the privilege of holding a market and fair was granted to it; both, however, have long been discontinued. The church is dedicated to All Saints, and the living is a rectory, in the patronage of the Holden family. The parish (which has no dependent township), contained, in 1831, 620 inhabitants.

WESTON-UPON-TRENT is a small parish, in the same hundred as Shardlow, the village being about two miles south from Aston, and four from Shardlow. The Trent & Mersey canal passes through the parish - which is in the honour of Tutbury. One mile hence is Donington park, one of the seats of the Marquess of Hastings. The church is dedicated to St. Mary: the living is a rectory, in the patronage of Sir Robert Wilmot, Bart. The parish contained at the last census (1831), 387 inhabitants, being an increase only of seven persons since the returns made thirty years before. parish.
