DINTING, a township, in the parish and union of Glossop, hundred of High Peak, N. division of the county of Derby, 1 mile (W.) from Glossop; containing 387 inhabitants. It comprises 586 acres; and has a small scattered village of the same name, on a fine eminence which commands a rich view of the vale here and the surrounding district. The principal part of the inhabitants are at Dinting-Vale, a village that connects itself with Green-Vale at the Junction inn. A viaduct of the Sheffield and Manchester railway, consisting of sixteen arches, of which five are of wood and stone, and eleven of brick and stone, crosses the valley, and presents a handsome appearance in the scenery: the foundation stone was laid by William Sidebottom, Esq., of Etherow House, and the erection cost £42,000. The Dinting station is at a short distance from the viaduct, and joins the branch line to Glossop. In the vale are a paper manufactory and extensive calico print-works. A school established about nine years since by Messrs. Edmund Potter and Company, proprietors of the print-works, is attended by about sixty children.
