Pilsbury is a hamlet in the English county of Derbyshire, approximately 2 miles north of Hartington. It is on the side of the valley of the River Dove that, thereabouts, forms the border with the county of Staffordshire.

History[edit]

Pilsbury was mentioned in the Domesday book as belonging to Henry de Ferrers and being worth ten shillings.[1] Roughly halfway to Hartington is the site of Henry de Ferrers' Pilsbury Castle.
