WOODLAND HOPE is an extensive district and township, forming the north side of the parish of Hope, 4¾ miles N.N.W. from Hope, contains about 22,000 acres of land, of which 7,000 acres are rateable, and in 1851 had 43 houses, and 256 inhabitants, of whom 138 are males, and 118 females; rateable value £4,200, The Duke of Devonshire is lord of the manor and owner of 19,253A. 2R. 25P. of land, which contains no minerals. The houses are all scattered farm houses, of which several have lately been rebuilt. A few oats are grown, but the land is principally grass, and subject to the tithe of lamb and wool. Snake Inn, on the Sheffield and Glossop turnpike road, 17 miles W. from Sheffield, and 7 miles S.E. from Glossop, is a commodious house. This township partakes of John Eyre's charity for teaching poor children and buying prayer books. (See Derwent, in Hathersage parish.)
