SK3027 : Boot Hill and Brook End

taken 9 years ago, near to Repton, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Boot Hill and Brook End
Boot Hill and Brook End
On the left is Boot Hill, branching off from Brook End, on the right. Both lead up to the High Street. The white building in Boot Hill is the well known Boot Inn. The building on the far left of the photo looks as if it may have been converted from a chapel.

Repton today is usually referred to as a large village, but it does have some of the characteristics of a small town. It still has a bank, 4 public houses and various other facilities which have disappeared from most villages. For the last few hundred years its claim to fame is being the home of the famous Repton School, a public school founded in 1557. But hundreds of years earlier it was the capital of the Saxon kingdom of Mercia. A couple of their kings are buried in the crypt of the local church.
