Coal is wrought, but in small quantity; ironstone is also worked: bricks are made, and there is a good buildingstone quarry. Lace-making and frame-work knitting also employ some hands. The village is pleasantly situated on an eminence, and commands very extensive prospects; in its centre is an ancient cross bearing the date 1632. The living is a vicarage endowed with the rectorial tithes, with the chapel of Dale-Abbey; patrons, Trustees appointed by the proprietors of the lordship. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £300. The church is a plain neat edifice, with a tower.
