It's major industries were coal mining, iron working and lace making, but have now all disappeared. Stanton Ironworks was on of the largest employers Known and Stanton and Staveley, continuing a long- standing tradition of iron working and pipework. Its now a Market town with the market place still the site of the Charter Fair which celebrated its 765th anniversary in 2018. This makes the fair older than Nottingham's Famous Goose fair and is one of the largest fairs in the Country, indeed in Europe.
