About Erewash

Erewash borough covers an area of about 10.963 hectares (109.6 sq.km) and lies between Derby and Nottingham in the south east of Derbyshire. It takes its name from the River Erewash which flows down its eastern border.
Erewash is a borough of contrast, to the eastern side are the market towns of Ilkeston and Long Eaton, whilst the west is more rural with some isolated villages. The two large cities of Derby and Nottingham both border the borough, and have an influence on the area.
