The Long Eaton & Sawley Archive  
Home > Welcome > Old Names

The following list of names was taken from A History Of Long Eaton & District by Arthur Hooper (1954) the former local librarian, with the later backing of the Long Eaton Urban District Council. It is a simple, typed, book and has many obvious typing errors. In it he says: "There is no castle, great House, battlefield or even moorland to give colour to the story of Long Eaton."

This history, some 140 pages, was indexed by Mike Foster of Wellington, New Zealand in May 1995 and last updated 17 Jan 2001 by Rosemary Lockie.
