From 2010

From the 2010 United Kingdom general election onwards, Derbyshire has been divided into 11 constituencies rather than the former 10. This involved the abolishment of West Derbyshire (UK Parliament constituency), the creation of Derbyshire Dales (UK Parliament constituency) and the re-introduction of Mid Derbyshire (UK Parliament constituency)
