The Dore and Totley Transcripts

A collation of information by well-known local historian and artist, Brian Edwards.

Brian is very well-known for the production of many books of sketches of Dore, Totley, the surrounding local area and the Peak District. The image below is taken from his book ‘Dore, Totley and Beyond’ published in 1996.

His sketch shows the Lych Gate of Christ Church, Dore.

Brian supported the text of his sketches and photographs with detailed research into any references he could find to Dore and Totley. This information is reproduced in the following pages. Very grateful thanks are owed to Brian for putting together such a comprehensive document about our local area.
