Langley Mill

Langley Mill is a small town in the Amber Valley district of Derbyshire, England. It is on the border of Nottinghamshire, and runs into the towns of Aldercar (to the west) and Heanor (to the south). Across the River Erewash is the Nottinghamshire town of Eastwood. It is part of the Aldercar and Langley Mill parish. Although the town has an "NG" postcode, it is in Derbyshire. (The boundary used to be the River Erewash, but the River Erewash canal basin moved from Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire a few years ago, and the A610 is the new boundary.)

Famous quotes containing the words mill and/or langley:

    Mathematics may be compared to a mill of exquisite workmanship, which grinds your stuff of any degree of fineness; but nevertheless, what you get out depends upon what you put in; and as the grandest mill in the world will not extract wheat- flour from peascods, so pages of formulae will not get a definite result out of loose data.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.... Now I know we’re not in Kansas.
    —Noel Langley (1898–1981)
