Ault Hucknall, Derbyshire

Ault Hucknall is a village, which gives its name to the surrounding civil parish, in the Bolsover district of Derbyshire, England. Local residents describe the settlement as the "smallest village in England", although as a village is not legally defined in England, this is not a provable claim – many would refer to it as a hamlet. The philosopher Thomas Hobbes was interred within Ault Hucknall’s St. John the Baptist Church following his death in 1679.
