About Matlock

Matlock is the county town of Derbyshire, England, United Kingdom. It is situated at the south eastern edge of the Peak District, and is twinned with the French town Eaubonne. Matlock Bath lies immediately south of the town on the A6. Matlock is nine miles south west of Chesterfield, surrounded by the cities of Derby (19 miles), Sheffield (20 miles) and Nottingham (29 Miles).

The A6 road continues to the Metropolitan areas of Stockport (30 miles) and Manchester (45 miles away). A former spa town, Matlock lies on the River Derwent, and has prospered from both the hydrotherapy industry and the mills constructed on the river.

It was an unimportant collection of small villages — Matlock Town, Matlock Green, Matlock Bridge, Matlock Bank — until thermal springs were discovered in 1698. The population increased rapidly in the 1800s, largely due to hugely popular hydros being built. At one stage there were around twenty hydros, most on Matlock Bank. The largest was built in 1853 by John Smedley.
