About this image
Unstone is a township in the parish of Dronfield, part of the hundred of Scarsdale, 1 mile S.E. of Dronfield. It developed from a farming community in the late victorian period with the opening of the Silkstone Colliery on the 31st October 1868. Lane Cottage is on the right. The building in the middle is now the Post Office. Other buildings have since been demolished.
