MACKWORTH (All Saints), a parish, in the union of Belper, hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, S. division of the county of Derby, 2¾ miles (W. N. W.) from Derby; containing, with the township of MarkEaton, 561 inhabitants. The lands, consisting of 3400 acres, are chiefly in pasture, and considerable quantities of cheese are sent to market. The surface is pleasingly varied, and richly wooded; the principal timber is oak and ash, which thrive well. The parish is the property of William Mundy, Esq., and Lord Scarsdale. The living is a discharged vicarage, with the perpetual curacy of Allestree annexed, valued in the king's books at £9. 3.; net income, £161; patron and impropriator, Mr. Mundy. The church is a venerable structure partly in the decorated style, consisting of a nave, chancel, a fine tower, and an octagonal spire; the chancel, built about the time of Edward I., is much older than the other parts, and the details of the whole are very correct. Schools are supported by the Mundy family; and among the charities is a payment of twelve guineas annually, the gift of German Pole, of Redbourn, for apprenticing a boy. Here is the gateway of a castle, anciently the seat of the De Mackworths, and said to have been demolished during the parliamentary war.
