It has a population of 628, increasing to 682 at the 2011 Census. There is a local myth called "The Cockatrice of Church Street". The story goes that the mythical beast resides near the Churchyard, those unlucky enough to hear its call are said to never sleep again.

Sir William de Notton, later Lord Chief Justice of Ireland, was Lord of the Manor of Fishlake in the 1340s. In 1350 he and his wife Isabel conveyed it to John de Birthwaite, the Prior of Monk Bretton Priory, to build a chantry chapel at Woolley Church, where prayers were to be said for the souls of the Royal family as well as Notton's own family. The timing of the grant suggests that Notton was giving thanks for England's deliverance from the first outbreak of the Black Death. Source: Wikipedia
