Carsington is a village in the middle of the Derbyshire Dales, England; it adjoins the hamlet of Hopton, Derbyshire, close to the historic town of Wirksworth and village of Brassington.Population - 111HistoryCarsington has a long history, including Roman occupation . In prehistoric times, woolly rhinos lived in the area; the remains of one such animal were discovered nearby in the "Dream Cave" adjacent to the Callow and Hopton end of Summer Lane in the late twentieth century.The Channel 4 archaeology series Time Team once visited Carsington to investigate the archaeology and ancient remains in the pastures, where they visited a cave, discovered by the Pegasus Caving Club, full of ancient human bones.Carsington todayToday, Carsington has one pub, the Miner's Arms; a primary school; the community is primarily composed of a strong commuter and retiree contingent to replace the traditional agricultural, mining and quarrying community.Another key event is the Annual Calendar Auction, where an un-knowing local inhabitant has a calendar featuring 12 different images of themselves created then sold off to the highest bidder, in aid of Charity. For 2012 a local 'stud' was chosen to the delight of many local female inhabitants. A heavy mix of alcohol and pheromones lead to an unexpected bidding war, and resulted in a three figured sum. the shortlist for the 2013 model is under debate.
