To The Peaks of Fame: Henry Cavendish, ‘Father of Chemistry’ Henry Cavendish was a genius. To a certain extent this was appreciated during his lifetime but not fully recognized until many years after his death in 1810. Born on 10 October 1731, he was the first son of Lord Charles Cavendish whose father was the 2nd Duke of Devonshire, owner of Chatsworth. Young Henry’s mother, Lady Anne Cavendish, died in 1733 following the birth of a second son. Their branch of the family did not have unlimited wealth but both boys were educated at an English school and went on to Cambridge. From his earliest years, Henry also learned a great deal of practical science by assisting his father, an outstanding experimental physicist and senior

member of the Royal Society. Henry’s sole interest in life would turn out to be scientific research, conducted with mathematical precision and faultless powers of observation. His house in Clapham contained a laboratory and an astronomical observatory; for many years he also studied the night sky from a tree in his garden. Shy and extremely uncomfortable in the presence of women, he was reputedly so discomfited at encountering a housemaid on his own stairs that he immediately had a rear staircase constructed for the servants’ use. He never married and by the time his father died was almost a social recluse. His one

regular outing was to dine with fellow members of the Royal Society – at which he preferred to be completely ignored. Even his portrait, in greatcoat and kneebreeches, periwig and tricorn hat, was produced without his knowledge. In early middle age Cavendish inherited the combined fortunes of several relatives but would never show the slightest interest in his wealth. It was this financial security that enabled him to devote his life to experimental science. Weight of the earth Although many of his discoveries came to the attention of leading scientists of the day, an enormous amount of material remained unpublished. This was only partly due to his unassuming nature. The major reason was that whilst his interests largely coincided with developments linked to the Industrial Revolution, they neither fitted precisely into the scientific climate of the day nor into the ‘old school’ of which Cavendish and his few close contacts were part. Under different circumstances he might have worked in an atmosphere where his findings would have been shared.

The value of any papers that were published, for instance on water analysis, gravitational attraction and the properties of gases, was immediately recognized and Cavendish became active on numerous Royal Society committees. One such was set up at the request of the Board of Ordnance, when he worked with Benjamin Franklin on the study and improvement of lightning conductors. He was also the first to show that the torpedo fish stunned its prey by producing an electric discharge. The development of barometers was also based Continued on Page 4

One-to-one attention from an expert First-hand knowledge of destinations No more hours of website trawling Removes the stress from start to finish Fancy making yourself useful to local amphibians during March? A group of Monyash residents are setting up a toad patrol, in a bid to reduce the carnage on the village’s roads during the mating season. The picture shows a pair in a romantic embrace, taken last Spring. The male is hitching a ride towards Fere Mere, the breeding pool, on

the larger female. They are not mating, as most people think; toads spawn only when they enter water, which may be quite a distance away. Simon Corble, the instigator of the scheme says: “Some Monyash residents might recall seeing a few of us out with buckets and torches last April, helping the mass migration of toads, (plus a few

newts) back into the mere. We even managed to make it on to BBC Radio Derby’s breakfast show, live, complete with croaks from our captive toads being transported in a bucket. We calculated that we escorted around 1,500 toads to safety during the two weeks of patrolling. It has been a sad sight for too many years now, squashed

amphibians on the four arteries through Monyash. The big females may be as much as thirty years old. Hiding in our stone walls all through the winter, they are drawn irresistibly towards their spawning sites as they must have been for hundreds, if not thousands of years; Fere Mere has been there since the end of the last Ice Age.” The good news is that the group, via the amphibian charity, Froglife, have succeeded in getting the site registered as an official crossing, which means that seasonal road signs can be put up to warn motorists. These are being provided by Derbyshire Amphibian and Reptile Group. A team of volunteers is being put together to help on the crossings, much as last year, but on a more organised basis. If you feel you can spare a few hours of an evening during March then let Simon or Judy Corble know on 01629 813083 or . “We are going to organise a rota of volunteers who will be “scrambled” by telephone or email when the migration starts,” says Simon. “It is very simple, yet highly rewarding work. Let’s help preserve these remarkable creatures and stop the annual carnage.” Drivers are also being asked to slow down and watch out for toads right through March and into the middle of April.

To The Peaks of Fame: Henry Cavendish, ‘Father of Chemistry’

Continued from Page 1

on work carried out by Charles and Henry Cavendish. Numerous later experiments were related to atmospheric and frictional electricity, but Henry’s popular claim to fame is that he was the first man to calculate the weight of the earth, producing an estimate impressively close to modern calculations. He was also the first to weigh and reveal the properties of carbon dioxide and other gases, and to establish that water consists of hydrogen and oxygen. His work on hydrogen, for which he was honoured by the Royal Society, prompted his deep interest in the development of hot-air balloons. When ballooning reached England in 1784, air samples were collected for his experiments into the composition of air. Typically, Cavendish was too shy to ask for samples himself – the request went through a third party. His magnetic observations spanned the

last 50 years of his life. To the end, all investigations were supported by faultless i nve s t i gat i o n and exacting calculations. Posthumous recognition History tells us that on 24 February 1810, after a short illness, Henry Cavendish summoned his valet to tell him that he was dying but that Lord George Cavendish, his nephew and heir, was not be to told until death had occurred. Half an hour later Henry called the servant

back and made him repeat the exact instructions. Then, satisfied, the old man asked for his lavender water and settled down to die in his bed. He was buried in the family vault at Derby All Saints’ Church, now Derby Cathedral. His nephew inherited the largest single holding of bank stock in England – valued at £700,000, a canal, a number of investment properties and many thousands of

pounds in accessible funds. A hoard of Cavendish papers, including extensive work on heat, awaited thorough investigation and publication into the 1870s, when years of study by Clerk Maxwell, first Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics at Cambridge, discovered astonishing results. Numerous posthumously-published papers would reveal that Cavendish had anticipated laws which were to immortalise later physicists and chemists including Charles, Ohm, Faraday, Dalton, Bunsen, Kelvin, Pickering, Larmor and Richter. Some of his contributions were not fully recognized until the 20th century. The name of the brilliant Henry Cavendish holds one more place in the world of science: it was in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University, named in his honour, that in 1932 Rutherford split the atom.

MINI BUS TRIP FROM MATLOCK TO DOVEDALE Residents of Long Meadow Care Home - Terri, Peter, Bessie, Eunice, Ida, Richard and Joan with staff Kevin and Tina enjoyed a mini bus trip from Matlock to Dovedale. Resident Peter Newbould writes his account of the trip. “As we passed through Matlock Bath we saw the Jubilee Bridge which spans the fast flowing river, the river Derwent. It was erected in 1887 and is going to be restored at a cost of £210,000. Work will commence thisApril and will be completed in June. “We were pleased to welcome Tina our activities coordinator back to work, as she has been off work with illness. “As we continued along our journey, we observed miles and miles of neat hedgerows bordering the roadside. All this work is now achieved by tractors and mechanical cutters. Back in time it would have been done by farm workers equipped with bill hooks to chop through the hedges and lay the branches to stimulate the growth. “As we came closer to Dovedale, we had to drive through a ford which was quite deep due to the heavy rain. Kevin our driver said jokingly “all feet up!” “When we arrived at Dovedale, we pulled into a car park which had a toilet block. Tina poured the tea and we all enjoyed one of Lisa’s jam tarts each. “Soon it was time to make a return journey. The rain turned to flurries of snow. We saw a few starlings but nothing like those reported this week at Middleton Moor. Flocks of 50,000 starlings have been photographed flying in to roost. There was even a roadside signpost with an image of a starling on it.

“As we got nearer to Matlock, we passed through Bakewell which looked very busy. Bakewell always looks

attractive especially when all of the shops are lit up. “Soon we were back home, just in time for tea. We

enjoyed the trip and look forward to the next one, in the company of Tina and Kevin.”

The local community has made a significant contribution to publicising Fair Trade for banana farmers. For a Saturday morning the A6, among other roads, was lit up by the sight of runners, some in banana outfits, some carrying large inflatable bananas, and all having fun. The Mayor of Bakewell Paul Morgans and District Councillor Carol Walker started a group from the riverside in Bakewell. The Bakewell Hurriers, an informal group of runners, were joined by a large contingent from Matlock Athletic Club. They ran through the park and along the A6 to Darley Dale, attracting much

ARKWRIGHT SOCIETY’S LUMSDALE PROJECT IN PRESTIGIOUS LONDON LECTURE SERIES On the fringe of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and Sir Richard Arkwright’s Cromford, though less well known, the Lumsdale Valley in Derbyshire is one of the country’s most concentrated sites for early water-powered industry and a unique environment. Forerunner of Arkwright’s Grand Plan this secluded wooded valley shelters ruined mills, a smithy, ponds and waterfalls. Taking place in London this March, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) Spring Lectures explore buildings in their environment and on Thursday 13 March, Julian Burgess (The Arkwright Society - Lumsdale Project) talks about Protecting the Lumsdale Valley and describes the Lumsdale Project’s Masterplan to protect and conserve this special and unique place. The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is Britain’s oldest conservation charity and has around 8,500 members. Founded by William Morris in 1877 to combat destructive Victorian enthusiasm for restoration rather than repair, today SPAB continues to offer advice, education and expertise to building professionals and homeowners. Other lectures in the series are Repairing the Crystal Grotto at Painshill Park, Surrey; and War and Landscape: landscape as war memorial. For further details visit:

The pupils of Darley Dale Primary School have just completed a major project they have built and positioned some 35 nest boxes to attract blue tits, great tits, robins and wrens to nest and breed around the school grounds. Through working as a volunteer for Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, one of the Darley Dale In Bloom committee members saw an opportunity to draw the two threads together - providing a number of nest boxes in the town would improve the survival rate for a variety of our local bird population and, if this could be carried out by one of the primary schools, a greater understanding of the lifecycle of our birds would be gained. This has been demonstrated nationally by the huge popularity of the BBC Springwatch and Autumnwatch series on television. The headmaster, Peter Hughes, agreed to fund the project and, with the support of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Reserve volunteer Stewart Abbott, the pupils have been given an introduction into identification of birds and the species they are likely to have visiting the boxes. The pupils demonstrated huge enthusiasm in discussions about the selection of safe and attractive sites to place the boxes and how to give the birds the best chance of successfully rearing their chicks. A database for the school has been set up on the British Trust for Ornithology's website and the pupils will now create and maintain their own records of visitors to their boxes. Each year-group in the school took part and, within each year, pupils grouped in teams of 5-6 to construct each box. Once completed, they uniquely numbered their box for record-keeping purposes and, before fixing them in position around the

school grounds, each pupil signed the box that they had helped construct. The project has taken place across the whole of January and a huge level of enthusiasm has been demonstrated throughout the school, across all ages; patience is now required to allow the birds to find a mate such that they can set up home in the boxes and successfully rear their chicks. It is a popular misconception that “In Bloom” is just about flowers and flower beds; it is actually about bringing members of a community together to work for the overall benefit and improvement of their town. To add a bit of spice to this work, there are regional and national judging events to identify the best in a variety of classes. Darley Dale has created and maintains its own website where all of the activities, and associated reports, can be found:

At the meeting held on Tuesday 25 February 2014 the speaker was Mr. Sean Casey. Mr. Casey is a Clinical Nurse Specialist working in the field of Continence and Urology Care. The talk dealt mainly with the bladder and its functions in normal circumstances and then went on to discuss a variety of problems which may arise and the causes and symptoms relating to such problems. The second part of the talk centred on the resources available to enable individuals to manage the problems associated with incontinence. Mr. Casey discussed, explained and illustrated many of the aids which are available to alleviate these problems. In dealing with a topic

which can be inherently difficult to discuss publicly, provoking as it does a range of individual responses, Mr. Casey managed with a practised skill to cover the topic with a down to earth presentation delivered at a level appropriate to a lay audience but still covering key areas and providing reassurance and useful advice as well as a leavening of humour The audience appreciated the talk and the way in which Mr. Casey answered the numerous questions and observations which made for a very participatory session. A vote of thanks was proposed by Chairman Jim Pocklington. Details of the Club’s Programme and activities can be found on its web site at

Kate conducts the Honey Belles in rehearsal. (Inset) Accompanist Iain Barnett Walk past Ashover’s Bassett Rooms on any Wednesday evening these days and the chances are you will hear the strains of some wellloved Lloyd-Webber hit or a more modern musical offering from the likes of Lady Gaga. It’s almost certain to be the Honey Belles in rehearsal, a new, all-female choir that plans a first public performance on May Day, a larger concert in the winter and is aiming for a professional recording session soon afterwards. Musical director Kate Challinor-Moss says that the Honey Belles choir started as an idea to get mums out of the house for one evening a week to do something they loved that didn’t involve children – “something just for them”.

She chatted to local mums about her ideas and in January decided to take the plunge and hire the Bassett Rooms for a first rehearsal. The choir already has 20 members who meet in the Bassett Rooms every Wednesday evening between 7.45pm and 9.30pm to sing a varied programme of music. No previous musical experience is necessary but members have to be at least 18. “Some have joined us with a musical background and some have joined just because they love to sing,” says Kate. First public performance by the Honey Belles will with be at Ashover’s May Day carnival where the group intends to have a stall to promote the choir and hopes to recruit even more


voices. Kate adds: “We are also in talks with choirs, churches and hotels that have shown interest in the Honey Belles performing for them”. Her principal aim is to work towards a winter concert to show off the choir and raise enough money to go into a

professional recording studio next year. Says Kate: “I want the choir to make memories they can be proud of, as well as doing a few cool things along the way”. Further information is available on Twitter and Facebook or from Kate at

A very pleasant way to spend a winter evening is to watch a DVD of one of your favourite areas of the countryside, where they feature the local wildlife and run through the seasons of the year. If you enjoy doing this and also if you like to visit the Upper Derwent Valley, our next talk in the current series will be just right for you. Richard Long will be giving a talk about how he and his wife Pam produced a DVD about the rich wildlife of the Upper Derwent Valley. Many of us visit this beautiful and spectacular area of the Peak District National Park. With its three reservoirs of Howden, Derwent and Ladybower, its steep wooded valleys, and the high moorland plateau, the range of different habitats has produced a rich and varied wildlife. A walk along the gritstone Derwent Edge can give fantastic views, and can be especially good when the heather is in flower in late summer. The call of the red grouse is symbolic of these moors, where you can also hear the mournful wail of golden plover and the bubbling cry of the curlew. If you are very lucky you could see a merlin dashing low over the heather, or a short eared owl floating ghost-like in the mist. The conifer plantations are not as attractive as the mixed woodlands but goshawks, crossbill and goldcrest can be found there. Larch and beech can give beautiful autumn colours, and that is the time to look out for fungi. In winter you may have a better chance of seeing the mountain hare. This is the only English

population of this species, which changes to a mottled white coat in winter, and can still be hard to see even when there isn’t any snow. So do come along to our talk on Monday 24 March 2014 at the Medway Centre, New Street, Bakewell at 7.30pm. Admission is £2.50 and everyone is very welcome.

Tideswell Singers are enjoying learning some new repertoire to share with you on various occasions throughout the year. The first of these will be in All Saints Church, Youlgreave at 7.30pm on Saturday 5 April. Admission £7 includes refreshments. Proceeds in aid of church funds. Sure on this Shining Night -Tideswell Singers are including a piece with this title in their concert of atmospheric and uplifting music in aid of church funds for Youlgreave Parish Church. This concert forms part of Tideswell Singers’ Derbyshire Tour. Established in 2006, this is the name this well respected mixed voice choir gives to concerts they perform around the Peak District. They also perform in larger scale concerts and organise Come & Sing events. These community based concerts are often arranged in collaboration with local organisations, sometimes with the aim of fundraising. The choir always creates a relaxed sociable atmosphere where they can share some of their favourite repertoire. With well known sacred pieces and other recognisable melodies at the heart of their singing, the choir is also keen to introduce their audiences to less familiar music, including work by living composers - some written especially for Tideswell Singers. We are also preparing for our next Come & Sing event on 10 May. This year will be Vivaldi Gloria. We are anticipating over 100 singers in our glorious Cathedral of the Peak. Do, please come and join us! If not as a singer, there will be a performance with visiting orchestra, Ad Hoc Baroque, at 6pm. Tideswell Singers is a mixed voice non-audition choir which enjoys performing a wide ranging repertoire and welcomes new members. Rehearsals are held on Wednesdays in Litton Village Hall at 7.30pm.

At the recent Annual Meeting of the Matlock Trefoil Guild, chairperson Ann Hall reflected on a memorable year celebrating the 70th Birthday of the Trefoil Guild. The highlight had been the Midlands Garden Party at Shugborough Hall when they joined 500 other Trefoilers armed with gazebos, picnic tables, posh frocks and picnics. There was participation in many County and Region events including an activity day at Glenbrook, the Derbyshire Girlguiding centre in the Hope Valley. Activities during the year had included a BBQ at Pax Tor, a visit to Denby Pottery, dining out, viewing the wonderful dolls’ houses made and furnished by

one of the members, and a speaker from the

Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance

whose charity the Guild is actively supporting. Three

members ventured further afield to Mexico to experience the vibrant culture of that country and visit the Girlguiding World Centre. Support for Girlguiding continued to grow with help being given at several local events, including the County Camp at Drum Hill when the highlight was sitting in Lord BadenPowell’s 1928 Rolls Royce, and support for Brownie Leader Kerry Osborne who is representing Guiding in Malawi next summer. Sadly they lost one of their founder members, Jessie Fairey, who had given many years of service to Guiding. In her memory, nest boxes had been purchased for the Brownie Holiday House, Pax Tor.

rest of the journey through northern Ethiopia involved the principal historical cities. Much of early Ethiopian history is shrouded in such a fog of legend that the truth is largely unknown. These legends, together with the modern history and culture of Tigray’s cities and rockhewn churches, make a fascinating contrast in the second part of their Ethiopian journey.

recorded in a large outdoor mural. This year the school has entered a new chapter in its history welcoming new Headteacher, Mrs Nancy Lees, in January. Mrs Lees joins the school from a small school in Cumbria where she was the Headteacher. Having taught in a variety of schools – from large inner city to small rural schools – Mrs Lees is alive to the future challenges which face rural schools but is a keen supporter of the ‘special qualities’ that small schools offer and firmly believes ‘that the strength of community support for these very special little schools is crucial to the success of the school community as a whole.’ As well as managing the school Mrs Lees teaches all year groups - the core subjects to the infant children and Art, her passion, to the juniors. At the end of her first half term at Castleton, Mrs Lees said, ‘As with most newcomers to the area I was instantly struck by the beauty of the area but very quickly I have been drawn into a very strong and supportive community, at the heart of which is the School. With that support I aim to ensure that the School provides a fun, creative and successful start to the learning journey for our pupils.’ Castleton is a feeder school for Hope Valley College and has pupils accepted into Lady Manners. It attracts and welcomes pupils from outside Castleton village. For more information and details about admissions contact Mrs N. Lees on 01433 620630.

Andy Earp running in the Centurion North Downs A runner from Matlock won 4 awards including the club’s prestigious Achievement Award at the UKnetrunner AGM in Stratford Upon Avon. Andy Earp, who can be found training on the hills and trails around Chatsworth Estate and Beeley Moor and whose favourite local race is the White Peak Marathon run by Matlock AC, had an excellent year of running including marathons in Barcelona and Amsterdam and the Centurion North Downs Way 100. The 100 mile race was the culmination of three years of hard training. UKnetrunner is a national running club with over 140 members. The club caters for runners whose lifestyles make it difficult to attend a local running club, but still

want the regular support of clubmates. Stephen Price, Chair of UKnetrunner, said, “Andy excelled in 2013 setting PBs over all distances he ran, steamrollering the grand prix, and winning handicap events. He completed several ultra runs ranging from 30 miles to 100 miles. Andy receives this award for his all round year of achievements.” Andy said, “It felt really great to come away with four awards, especially as I've never won anything for running before. I've been running since I was 18 and I think it emphasised that I've probably had the best running year of my life in 2013.” You can find more about the club at www.uknet

bringing together 15 British schools (of which 3 are in Derbyshire) with students from across the Commonwealth to learn how to make the most of their place in the Commonwealth and wider world. The student’s first task

is to upload facts and photos about Highfields to a shared space on the class website and to create a presentation about a typical day at school. The first online debate took place on Thursday 27th February on the subject of school voice and councils. School Year 11 ‘Voice of Sports’ Representatives Oli Walden and Anabelle MacGregor will be team captains for this project. These students are also Silver ‘Young Ambassadors’ and have already been out into their local RDSSP primary schools leading Assemblies as have Gregor Brailsford, Chris Statham, Ashley Bartle and Zoe Amiss. Jayne Allen, School Sport Coordinator at Highfields in the Rural

Derbyshire School Sport Partnership, said: “I’m delighted to have been successful in becoming a Commonwealth Class school. We will be linked to nine other Commonwealth schools from across the globe and we can't wait to engage with each school and take up the challenges the project brings.” “We’re also excited about being linked with Paralympic swimmer Susie Rodgers as she prepares for the Games. This project will build on the amazing experience we had as a World Class Olympic Dream School in the run up to London 2012 when we were linked with Australian swimmer Emily Seebohm, who we still keep in touch with.”

Conditions for many in the farming community are often tough, leading to anxiety and depression. This was certainly the case in the 1980’s when the outbreak of foot and mouth disease proved to be the last straw for many. A small group of counsellors recognised the silent suffering experienced by many in the rural areas of the Peak District and they created Derwent Rural Counselling Service (DRCS). The owner of a Bakewell bookshop offered a room and five qualified counsellors volunteered their help. The service was made available every Monday afternoon on market day so that farm workers attending Bakewell agricultural market could drop into the bookshop discreetly and without drawing attention to themselves. Over the years DRCS grew from strength to strength as more people made use of the service, and moved to premises in Newholme Hospital. It was registered as a charity in 1991 and it

DRCS Staff Team at Newholme Hospital Bakewell. From left to right Mark Penman - Operations Manager, Menna Yarwood Clinical Manager, Joy Saynor- Admin Manager, Rosie AllisonService Administrator, Josh Bone- Service Administrator became the first counselling organisation in the country to be accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Funds were raised for many years by a group of “Friends” of the Charity. Their work has contributed greatly to reducing the stigma once attached to depression, anxiety and the need for counselling. Successive governments have recognised that nationally around 17.7% of adults meet the diagnostic criteria for at least one common mental health disorder and recognised the problem as a serious public health issue. In 2013 the NHS Derbyshire County introduced a programme

called ‘Improved Access to Psychological Therapies’ (IAPT) and DRCS joined forces with Derbyshire Health Care Foundation Trust to deliver that programme. DRCS alone now has 37 counsellors and will treat approximately one thousand patients per year. We are looking for new trustees to work with our team of Directors in order to continue the work that commenced over 25 years ago. If you are interested in becoming a trustee or if you feel you would like to take advantage of our service (which does not incur a cost) then please call 01629 812710.

THE IRONMASTER - Ann Carmichael On Sale at Hassop Railway Station

Author Ann Carmichael, whose ancestors lived in the Peak District for hundreds of years, has written a novel, THE IRONMASTER, which is historical fiction. Through the eyes of Anna Greensmith who married blacksmith John Gardom it portrays life in Baslow, Derbyshire when in 1686 the fourth Earl of Devonshire commenced the rebuilding of Chatsworth

House. The events that took place enriched the lives of the local people whose craftsmen were employed, together with artists and artisans who had come over from Europe with William of Orange and his wife Mary when they accepted the Crown of England. The book priced at £8 is on sale at the book shop at Hassop Railway Station.

Our wonderful open air heated swimming pool will be opening for the new season on Saturday 22nd March. Riverside Garage in Bamford are generously sponsoring this event. As well as the usual early sessions we have a few surprises on the day. Local band Mill Stone Grit will be performing in the afternoon as well as solo singer Ben Pedler. We will have a session of aqua aerobics, a game of Water Polo, and an inflatable session for the young ones! Keep an eye on the pool website for session times. We will also be testing out some fabulous

underwater speakers. The music from these can only be heard if you are in the pool! We are hoping to be able to buy a set very soon so that we can offer musical sessions at certain times of the day and also for parties and film nights. We will be serving hot soup and drinks, pasties, hot dogs and home-made cakes between 10am and 4pm. We have NOT invited the snowman this year - but if he turns up the show will go on as the pool will be a wonderful 82 degrees warm! We look forward to seeing you there!

LIVE MUSIC IN THE DALES Concerto Grosso and Brillante Brass

The final concerts of the season organised by Matlock Music are unusually close together. The first, by Concerto Grosso, is on Friday 21 March. Regulars will know what to expect – a scintillating concert by ten young outstanding string musicians drawn from Derbyshire and Sheffield, all taking turns to step forward into the limelight as they perform a favourite piece, while the others provide an orchestral accompaniment. Hugely enjoyable for audience and performers alike and always one of the most popular concerts of the Matlock season. The second concert is on Friday 4 April. It features Brillante Brass, a quintet formed in 2011 at the Royal Northern College of Music. The group has quickly progressed to become one

of the leading brass ensembles in Britain today. Members are frequent players with the Halle and BBC Philharmonic Orchestras. Their wideranging concert will include music by Malcolm Arnold, Paquito D’Rivera, Mozart, Bernstein and Rodgers & Hammerstein. Both concerts are at the Wheeldon Hall, Highfields School, Lumsdale, off the Chesterfield Road, Matlock, DE4 5NA, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are available at the door before the concert. Under-18s, students and registered jobseekers pay half-price. All seats are unreserved. There is ample parking at the school.

Tideswell Theatre brings a well known name to the village on Saturday 5th April for a performance in the magnificent and atmospheric Cathedral of the Peak. Singer and broadcaster Isla St Clair presents and performs a selection of popular songs, classics of their time, and tells the story behind them in her show Eyes Front. It's a delightful combination of live performance and film about music in wartime from Napoleonic times, through to the popular hits of two world wars and the 1950s. Joining Isla in her performance in St John the Baptist Church is film maker Patrick King who gives a fascinating and humorous “behind-the-scenes” look at the making of some awardwinning documentary films. Using film clips they illustrate how songs and music played an important part in people’s daily lives: for boosting morale, for propaganda or for just reminding people of better times. Isla St Clair is one of Britain's foremost traditional singers and has won many

accolades including Folk Singer of the Year. She is also remembered by millions for her numerous television appearances, most notably as co-host of BBC's classic

family show Generation Game, for which she won TV Personality of the Year. “Isla's voice is beautifully pure…” Sunday Times Magazine.

This rich mix of song, film, funny out-takes and interaction with the audience, makes for a lighthearted family show that is both informative and wonderfully entertaining. It's bound to be very popular so don't miss it. 7:30pm Saturday 5th April. Tickets for Eyes Front £9.50 and £7.50 (concessions) from Tideswell Post Office, Litton Shop. Bookings on theatre@ and 01298 871063. This season you can pay for booked tickets by online payment. Brought to the village through Live and Local, the Arts Council and local authority scheme to bring great music and theatre to places like ours, Tideswell Theatre has been bringing great professional entertainment to Tideswell since 2002. The wartime theme will continue with a production of The Accrington Pals by Tideswell Community Players at the end of May. For more information about shows in the village find Tideswell Theatre on Facebook and Twitter or join the emailing list now. Make contact now to get involved!


Iris the Railcar at Wirksworth Station A team from Network Rail’s Derby depot will be attempting to pull a train at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway to raise money for Sport Relief. The fundraising challenge is the brainchild of Michael Nicoll from Derby who is a member of Network Rail’s Rapid Response Team. Michael came up with the idea when he first saw a group of airport workers pulling a plane for Red Nose Day, and decided, “If they can pull a plane we could pull a train!” Michael then went about recruiting volunteers from Network Rail’s Derby Delivery Unit. Fittingly, the team will be attempting to pull ‘Iris the

Railcar’ which is a locally significant vehicle. Weighing 27 tonnes she was built at the British Rail Derby Works and celebrates her sixtieth birthday this year. Tom Tait, the Railway’s Commercial Manager said, “We are delighted that the Network Rail Team has asked the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway to host their challenge and look forward to a very successful and fun packed event.” The train pull attempt is open to anyone to come along and cheer the team on and will take place at Wirksworth Station on Wednesday 19th March at 10am.

T: 01433 639313 M: 07814 647845 E: “FreeCycle in the flesh” is how Judith Green of the Wirksworth Transition Group describes their annual “Give or Take” event. Held every Spring, this year’s event was the fourth where they invited locals to do a bit of early Spring cleaning and bring along useful items which they no longer need and give them away for free. Judith says: “It’s a jolly event where people come along and just

can’t believe we are giving away such lovely things. Some-one brought in a brand new bread maker and that was carried away very quickly by a new owner. Many people ask how much they have to pay, they find it hard to understand that they can take things for nothing but what we are trying to do is stop things going to landfill.” The organisers got together at 8am last


Charity Coffee Morning and A.G.M.


There will be a warm and friendly welcome for everyone at the Reading Room in Youlgrave on Saturday March 29th. when the Youlgrave Bangbutt Village Link Charity will be holding a Coffee Morning from 10am–12noon. For an entry fee of 50p visitors will receive a tea or coffee and a hot cross bun. In addition there will be a range of items for sale

including cakes, jam and other produce, bric a brac, toys, books, and hand crafted cards. All proceeds will go towards the charity’s projects in Sierra Leone which include clean water and sanitation and maternal and infant health initiatives. Visitors are also invited to stay for the group’s Annual General Meeting which will follow at 12.15.

Saturday in the Wellspring Church at Wirksworth, to organise and display items and by 12noon most of the furniture, books, toys, clothes, shoes and electrical items had been re-distributed around the community. The few items that remained unadopted were taken off to charity shops in the district or offered to deserving causes. It is a practical and obviously very useful way of demonstrating just how we can help our environment with a few well chosen events and a dozen or so active and community minded people. “It’s so lovely to see people finding things they are really going to enjoy and then discovering they are all for free” said a member of

Transition Wirksworth. The Transition Group have three active sub-groups: a Growers’ Group w h i c h encourages locals to grow their own food; a Rubbish Group who look at better ways of dealing with waste and an Energy group, who will be hosting the next event in their calendar – an information talk.

This led to a both viewings and sales, noticeable increase in the second time buyer sector which in turn, is seeing increased viewings and requests for valuations at the higher end of the property market.” Shaun is keen to ensure that Grant’s becomes the SELLING & LETTING homes ACROSS DERBYSHIRE agent of choice for higher end property. “It has become clear to me that not only are sellers of prestigious homes looking for a sale at a good price but they and the buyers they attract, expect – and deserve – a service which exceeds the bounds of ‘normal’ or even, ‘high-end’ practice”. And so, in conjunction with Associate Director, Jacqueline Ashmore, an exclusive new Two Dales - Matlock service for distinctive 28 Wheatley Gardens Guide Price £154,950 Derbyshire homes has been created.

more persuasive m a r k e t i n g strategy”. Property details come in an innovative, magazine style brochure, packed full of professional photographs and l i f e s t y l e information with the exclusive ‘Homes of Distinction’ b r a n d i n g throughout. Customer service is so often talked about but regularly leaves more than a little to be desired. Grant’s are determined to meet the demands of busy sellers and buyers alike – and have developed a charter to ensure that service levels are challenged continuously and improved wherever a gap is identified. Anyone who has sold a property is aware that a 9-5 agency, even with a call centre as back up, is frustrating to say the least. Shaun tells us that “When buying a property, I would hope to speak to someone who understands the location, the building, its history, key issues – and, have important lifestyle information to hand. I would also want to speak to them at a time to suit my busy lifestyle. That is exactly what we are delivering and that is what is also unique about our service. Our Associate Director will be a dedicated contact from instruction to completion, will have developed an intimate knowledge of both the property and location and be available regardless of office hours.” If you think your home is a Home of Distinction and would benefit from this innovative approach, contact Shaun Grant on: 01629 823008.

BOOK END BOOKSHOP OPENS TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITY Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport are pleased to announce the purchase and official opening of Book End, the premier secondhand bookshop in Bakewell. The shop, packed to the rafters with supporters and shoppers, was recently officially opened by Lord Edward Manners, pictured here with John Plant

(Director). John Plant, said, “Our objective is clear, to maintain Book End as a commercial, thriving bookshop which provides fabulous secondhand books and builds a reputation for great service to local residents and the many visitors to the town.” The shop will start out stocking a high quality range of second-hand books

Did You Know… We bake fresh produce on the premises daily – including our Famous Traditional Bakewell Puddings and award-winning Bakewell Tarts, home-made bread, cakes and pastries. You can place your order any day for a freshly baked white, wholemeal or granary loaf and collect it hot, straight from the oven. We also make all our

across a wide range of fiction and non-fiction categories. The shop also stocks gifts and cards and plans to create space to stock walking maps and local interest sections. There are also exciting plans to open an online trading store. “Something for everyone is what we want to aim for,” said co-director Giles Shepherd. “Without the intervention of BECT, the bookshop which has been established for around 2 years would probably have closed. We think

maintaining this valuable resource for the community as a working business and putting the profits it generates to work to help BECT meet its operating costs is an innovative way for the charity to benefit.” After the cutting of the cake Lord Manners noticed the gardening section and insisted that he would have to pop back and seek out one or two books for his wife... “It was fabulous that Lord Manners could open the shop and we look forward to welcoming him and you all to visit us in the

very near future,” concluded John Plant. Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport would like to thank Rajas Restaurant (next door to Book End) for hosting the tea and coffee after the official opening. Book End is an embryonic social enterprise and will continue to seek innovative and engaging opportunities to serve the local community. Volunteers are key to the success of the shop – please contact 01629 641922 for further information.

We have been entirely handmaking chocolates now for more than 25 years and this is our story: Owner of Holdsworth Chocolates and qualified chocolatier, Genevieve Holdsworth, was lucky enough to inherit the ‘Chocolate Factory’ from her mother Barbara Holdsworth in 2002. Barbara had started making chocolates in the heart of the English countryside in 1988. Spurred on by a passionate belief in a handmade approach, she crafted the most delicious centres from the quality, ethically sourced ingredients to her own unique recipes. She set about recruiting locally and gathered a team of enthusiastic staff whom she trained to become expert chocolatiers (including her daughter

Genevieve) and with a modicum of space and lots of enthusiasm – Holdsworth Chocolates was born. 26 years later Holdsworth Chocolates have grown and is now one of the finest entirely handmade artisan chocolate producers in the UK. Our belief and approach to chocolate making however have remained the same. Enthusiasm and passion, the finest quality ingredients and of course a complete belief in everything produced entirely by hand are the driving force and philosophy of our business. We are delighted to announce that we are moving to a state of the art food production facility at Deepdale Business Park in

Bakewell. Please come and visit our new factory shop which will be open from the 1st April, where you can watch the production process of making chocolates through our viewing window.

The Fishpond at Matlock Bath launches its Raft Restaurant hoping to make a splash! The Refurbished Fishpond is already renowned for regular live entertainment Thursday through Sunday with good quality food and drink served in the bar. Their newest project the Raft Restaurant will take things to another level offering a unique dining experience in their brand new relaxing restaurant space. The restaurant retains many of the historic building’s original features including the amazing original beams. No expense has been spared here; from the solid oak tables complete with fish detail to the warming log burners that frame the room. Put simply, the new dining room is the perfect place to unwind or celebrate with friends and family. Head chef Joe Aram brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Raft, having worked in successful fresh food kitchens across the UK and Europe. The style of food on

offer is contemporary British with a European twist and the menus will showcase the best local produce from reputable suppliers. The menu will also follow the seasons to ensure ingredients are at their finest when used. The Fishpond has something for everyone whether it’s local ales, a lively gig or relaxed dining in a fantastic setting easily accessible on foot by car or rail. The venue also caters for weddings and offers couples the chance to design their own menu with the assistance of the head chef. Options range from a delicious whole hog roast to bespoke three course menus. The Fishpond certainly stands out from the crowd and now has another string to its already impressive bow! Raft Restaurant is a great choice for that special occasion meal you may be planning? Raft Restaurant will open March 27 and is now taking bookings for the Mother’s Day weekend, so make sure you book in for what promises to be a great experience.

Slimming World Eat all this and still lose weight? At Slimming World there is so much ‘free’ food that you can eat without weighing, counting or measuring. Food such as pasta and rice, meat and fish, fruit and vegetables are all ‘free’. Potatoes, sweet corn, bananas and grapes can be eaten freely and fat free yoghurts, cottage cheese and eggs are all on this free list. Obviously some food is limited and needs to be measured, but no food is banned altogether and you can still enjoy a glass of wine, a bar of chocolate or a bag of crisps. Calcium and fibre are included in healthy choices. We have just been celebrating our members’

successes at Slimming World; The Couple of the Year, the Greatest Loser and Young Slimmer of the Year. Weight losses of 4, 5 and 6 stone are obviously exciting and quite dramatic but members who lose 1 stone

Matlock And District Bridleways Access Group A horse-riding group was launched in January 2014 created to improve and extend the bridleways network in the Matlock area. Our name is MADBAG (Matlock and District Bridleways Access Group). After a successful inaugural AGM held at the Gate Inn, Tansley in January, membership will run from 1st March and we are seeking to attract a wide membership together with volunteers to assist in clearing, restoring and in some cases creating routes where horses may be ridden off-road and in safety. Our committee is already in discussion with the Local and District Councils (including their footpaths and bridleways officers) and with a number of landowners and it is anticipated that once the monsoon season is over we should be able to make a start on some of our projects. We are affiliated to the British Horse Society, with all the advantages of advice and support and we have links to the other local bridleways and riding groups. We are keen to



er 20 14 / Su mm Sp rin g

(membership for the year is £10 per adult £15 per family or £5 per under 16). You will then be entitled and encouraged to submit your ideas for bridleway improvement or perhaps suggest a link across farmland so that a busy road may be avoided. We are hoping that the farming community will agree to trial licences to cross their land and would assure them that any necessary work such as fencing or horse-friendly gates will be constructed by MADBAG. A code of conduct for riders will form part of the arrangement. Now is the time to visit our website www.madbag.2013. and come along to our next General Meeting to start the wheels in motion. This will be held at the Gate Inn, Tansley on Tuesday 25th March at 7.30pm. For enquiries e-mail: work together with walkers and cyclists to improve off road facilities for us all. If you are a horse owner or rider please consider joining MADBAG,

Calver Children’s Cinema kids pitch edge with Derby County striker Mason Bennett and midfielder Paul Coutts On Saturday 22nd February Calver Children’s Cinema Club visited the iPro Stadium, home of Derby County Football Club, in recognition of the good work they have been doing and the money they have donated to various charities and organisations. The day started off with a quick look at their impressive trophy cabinet, and once everyone had arrived, we headed off to a function room that was allocated to us with our brilliant host Lloyd Stanway who did a superb job of keeping the kids entertained. They had a quiz to do, a wordsearch, and a colouring competition, which was judged by Rammie, to win a football

that will be signed by all of the players. The corridors and staircases in the iPro Stadium are all decorated with beautiful black and white photographs with various shots of Pride Park, players and managers spanning many decades, with quite a few shots of Brian Clough ~ one of them having the brilliant quote, “I wouldn’t say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.” After that we were led to our seats to watch the match against Bournemouth. Thankfully, Derby Rams were the better side that day and finished one nil up and are currently (at the time of writing) third in the Championship League.


Heavenly School of Reiki

After the match had finished, and all the fans had gone home, the children got a chance to take a penalty shoot-out against Rammie! After that it was time to go back



home. Calver Parish Council gave a grant towards the cost of the coach for the children of Calver Childrens’ Cinema to have a V.I.P. day out at Derby County Football Club.

whose families cannot afford to pay the full cost. Music provides an enriching, life-long experience, say the fund’s trustees. All children should have an equal chance to play an instrument and should not be excluded through financial hardship. Currently, the Fund, a registered charity, is helping with violin, piano, clarinet, singing, drumkit and viola lessons. Jonathan Priestley and Derek Taylor have, over the past twelve years, performed a wide variety of music in numerous venues. They enjoy performing their own arrangements, transcriptions and compositions. The concert is supported by Derbyshire County Council’s Youth Action Grant initiative.

es Engineer hire Dal ing s y b Lt r e D

Est 1988

With the ground beginning to dry out after a very wet winter, I decided to follow some traditional footpaths again and plumped for a wander around the pretty little village of Wormhill. Steeped in history, it is thought to have originally been named Wolfhill, taken from the numerous wolves that roamed hereabouts. In the 13th century it is known that a family living here were called Wolfhunt. They were given the name for their services of chasing and taking wolves in the King’s Forest of the Peak, and held a bovate of land based on a tenure of wolves’ heads (a bovate was a measure of land which could be ploughed in one day by one eighth of a plough team with eight oxen). My first port of call was to the village green to see the drinking fountain with troughs. These are a memorial to James Brindley the civil engineer and builder of over 300 miles of canals. He was born at a cottage (now demolished) between Tunstead and Great Rocks Dale. His father was said to be a lazy rough peasant who preferred bullbaiting to an honest day’s work. James worked as a boy at Old Hall Farm, leading wagons with sacks of grain to the old grist mill in Millers Dale known as Wormhill Mill. However, machinery was his greatest interest and in 1733 at the age of 17 he became apprenticed for 7 years to a millwright at Gurnet near Macclesfield. In 1742 James started his own business at Leek and became well known for his engineering knowledge. In 1759 James was approached by the Duke of Bridgewater to construct a

learnt to read or write properly and who often locked himself in his bedroom for days on end in order to solve his problems mentally, emerging only when he was satisfied with his calculations. Now I had a little detour to St Margaret’s Church which was restored in 1864. The base of the tower is all that remains of the medieval church. The Rhenish helm or four-sided pyramid-style gabled cap to the tower is said to be a replica of the Saxon tower at Stomping in Sussex. In the churchyard is part of a Saxon cross, now with sundial on top, and a most unusual pyramid shaped tomb. Wandering down the road from the village I glanced over the wall for a peep at Wormhill Hall which evidently has a date stone 1697 on a rainwater head. Built in an H-shape, the Hall with mullioned windows and a pediment over the front door was built by the Bagshawe family and is still in their ownership today. Past their best but still putting on a magnificent display was an extensive scattering of snowdrops beneath the trees along the drive. I headed through Hassop Farm on a footpath across fields to descend steeply into Flag Dale. After slipping and sliding on the polished limestone I ascended to cross another field, emerging onto a section of the Pennine Bridleway. My route now led me through Mosley Farm where my husband’s forefathers originated before spreading through Derbyshire, many of them still connected with farming. The views from this elevated farmstead are

breathtaking with Chee Dale appearing as a deep dark chasm edged with buttress cliffs of dark limestone. Down below I could make out the rooftops of cottages and buildings at Blackwell Mill. The medieval mill has long since disappeared that stood at a junction of old tracks here, then known as Slitherford, including an old road from Derby to Manchester and the steep zig-zag path which I was about to descend. Imagining packhorses and ponies making their way down the hillside I can easily see how it acquired its name! As the river level had receded considerably from its fast flowing and flooded status in February, I decided to follow the muddy riverside path downstream, wandering past flotsam, jetsam and debris washed down and dumped by the litter lout waters of the Wye. Butterbur flowers provided spears of colour to

an interesting test for my sense of balance – one false move and I would be joining the fishes in their playground! Arriving at a footbridge, I had tired of muddy paths and uneven terrain and so ascended the steep steps for a shortcut through Chee Tor on a stretch of the Monsal Trail and a lovely long tunnel. Emerging to bright sunlight I descended back to the riverside path beside the viaduct where abseiling regularly takes place. I then followed the river back upstream for a stretch until a metal footbridge. From here I headed up a gorgeous old path back to Wormhill, passing a small flock of unusual rare breed sheep which were grazing on grass and herbs beside the path, their fleeces thick, woolly and the colour of dark chocolate. Across the valley I could just make out the earthworks and lynchets on Chee Tor. These are early cultivation terraces that

an otherwise verdant scene. Moss and ferns appear to cover everything including stones, shrubs and every bit of a tree whilst delicate deep lichens sprouted here and there confirming the air to be pure. At one point a dipper dabbled about before perching on a rock to serenade my passing, and a little further on I passed opposite a multicoloured rock face striped with varying shades of grey and reddish orange where minerals were leaching out. Fortunately the first set of stepping stones in Chee Dale were exposed from the river but they still provided

smallholding farmers constructed many centuries ago. The path back to the village and the end of my walk then narrowed to pass between trees where long catkin dangled and the ground below was disturbed by little green shoots of new growth emerging. Sally Mosley

The Sixth of March, kind neighbours this is true, A wonder in the Sky came to my view; I pray believe it, for I tell no Lye, There’s many more did see it as well as I.

These Lights to me like great long spears did show, Sharp at one end, kind neighbours this is true; I was so troubled I could not count them o’er, But I suppose there was above a score.

I was on a Travel, and was very late, To speak the truth just about Daylight gate; My heart did tremble being all alone, To see such Wonders – the like was never known.

Then I saw like Blood it did appear, And that was very throng among the spears; I thought the Sky would have opened in my View, I was so daunted I knew not what to do.

The first of all so dark it was to me, That much ado my Way I had to see; I turn’d me round to see some Lights appear, And then I saw those Wonders in the air.

The next I saw two clouds meet fierce together As if they would have fought one another; And darkened all these Spears excepting one, They gave a Clash and quickly they were gone. The very last Day in the same month I’m told Many People did strange Sights behold; At Hartington, the truth I will not spare, That night they saw Great Wonders in the air.

It was at this time of the year that in 1716 a ‘strange sort of light in the air’ caused fear and alarm in the north-western Peak. It was probably an unusually brilliant appearance of Aurora Borealis, known as the Northern Lights. The phenomenon was noted in the parish registers of Chapel en le Frith and became the subject of a contemporary ballad, referring to two appearances of the lights as seen by people in Hartington. The ballad was recalled by Llewellyn Jewitt in The Reliquary, 1865/6:

Spring is in the air! Birds are singing and beginning to nest, lambs are gambolling in the fields, daffodils and dandelions are sprouting and my lawn is certainly looking a bit greener now that we have had a few days of sunshine and warmth.


About Eleven o’Clock late in that Night, A very dark Cloud which did them sore affright; Great smoke then came, it was perfect to their view, They cried out, O Lord,what must we do? They saw Great Lights which did amaze them sore, The like was never seen in any Age before, They went into their Houses for to Pray, We must Repent while it is call’d to Day.
