The Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire trolleybus system once linked the city of Nottingham, in the county of Nottinghamshire, England, with Ripley, in the neighbouring county of Derbyshire. Opened on 7 January 1932 (1932-01-07),[1][2] it replaced the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire tramway, between the same termini.

By the standards of the various now-defunct trolleybus systems in the United Kingdom, the system was a small and short-lived one, with a total of three routes, and a maximum fleet of 32 trolleybuses.[2] It was closed relatively early, on 25 April 1953 (1953-04-25).[1][2]

Three of the former Notts & Derby system trolleybuses are now preserved, one of them at Bournemouth Heritage Transport, Parkstone, Dorset, and the other two in a private collection in Boughton, Nottinghamshire.[3]

The city of Nottingham was also served by the Nottingham trolleybus system, in operation between 1927 and 1966. A Derby trolley bus network also existed from 1932 to 1967, having also taken over from tramcars. It finished when extensive roadworks made alterations to the overhead wiring uneconomic.
