Schedule of the Sale of Property in Baslow in 1920

Compiled by David Dalrymple-Smith, © Copyright November 2004
See also Houses with their 1848 occupants


The information is based on the Schedule for the 1920 Sale of Property in Baslow owned by the Duke of Rutland, which included detailed maps. This has been supplemented by modern maps and my (David's) knowledge of the Village to produce this summary. Please note however that many houses and fields in the village were NOT owned by the Duke, so do NOT appear in this list.

Lot numbers are as they appear in the schedule. They run form 545 to 563 because other villages were involved in the sale; however please note the subdivisions are NOT part of the original Schedule, and are added for the convenience of this presentation only, so that each building has a separate entry.

Descriptions of plots are copied from the Schedule. Inverted commas means a direct quote.
