Heanor is a town and an administrative or civil parish comprising the settlements of Heanor and Loscoe in the Amber Valley District of Derbyshire, northeast of the city of Derby. According to the census of 2011 the population of the civil parish was 22,620.
In 1984 three new civil parishes were created from the previously unparished urban district:
Heanor before 1974
The parish of Heanor formed a local board in about 1850 to provide services in the town. In 1895, under the Local Government Act 1894 the board's area became an urban district. In 1899 Heanor Urban District was enlarged with the addition of the neighbouring parish of Codnor and Loscoe. The urban district continued in existence until 1974, when it was merged into the new non-metropolitan district of Amber Valley under the Local Government Act 1972.
Loscoe is a small village that in the nineteenth century was within the parish of Heanor in Derbyshire, England. Denby Common and Codnor Breach are outlying hamlets on the western edge of Loscoe.
The research for Highfield House in Loscoe dates it back to 1650 or possibly as early as 1630. This may now be the oldest surviving house in Loscoe where many houses have been demolished due to subsidence.
