Little Green Space “Citizen science” is a phrase that’s been cropping up more and more over recent months – but what is citizen science, and how can we get involved? One form of citizen science is asking members of the public to collect data about different wildlife species. This information is then used by conservation charities to monitor species to find out which are thriving, and which are under threat. The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place each January, is an excellent example of how citizen science harnesses the efforts of thousands of volunteers to collect information. It started in 1979 as a winter activity for RSPB junior members, and was intended as a oneoff event to find the nation’s commonest birds. But the survey was so successful and popular – around 34,000 people took part – it’s now an annual event, and has gone from strength to strength. It’s now the world’s largest

wildlife survey with more than half a million people regularly taking part – and, with over 30 year’s worth of data collected, it gives the RSPB the information it needs to monitor the UK’s birds, spot problems, and help to put them right. Pond life There are plenty of other citizen science projects to get involved in. If you have a pond in your garden, Freshwater Habitats Trust ( .uk) would like your help to find out the importance of garden ponds for freshwater wildlife, including frogs, toads and newts. Their simple spawn survey, the Big Spawn Count, is extremely easy to participate in – all you have to do is keep an eye on the pond in your garden (or school grounds), count the number of clumps of spawn as soon as they appear in spring, and fill out a form. If you’ve never tried a citizen science project before, the Big Spawn Count

is a great way to put your toe in the water, as it requires minimal identification skills. Put it in your diary for March 2016! The Big Pond Dip is another survey run by Freshwater Habitats Trust – and is a great way to learn all about the wildlife living in your garden pond. The survey helps to answer questions about what makes a fantastic wildlife pond, looking at features such as water depth, plants and pond edges. To complete the survey, print out the questionnaire and identification sheet from the website and record what you see in your pond. This is a brilliant activity for kids – but adults should enjoy it too! By completing the survey, you’ll be helping Freshwater Habitats Trust to give advice to everyone about how to make garden ponds even better for wildlife. Birds, butterflies and bumblebees Many of us will be enjoying a walk or two in the sunny Peak District this summer – but next time you take a walk, why not try a little citizen science at the same time? Moors for the Future P a r t n e r s h i p ( .uk) have three easy community science surveys – counting birds, butterflies or bumblebees – that are ideal for people who enjoy a walk in the moorland areas of the Peak. The bird survey is very simple to complete: make a note of when and where you

see (or hear) any of three species – curlew, red grouse and swallow. These particular bird species are indicators of moorland health – so monitoring their distribution provides vital information that can aid moorland conservation. A similar butterfly survey can also be done – just look out for peacock, green hairstreak and orange tip butterflies next time you take a walk on the moors. For those with a little more time to spare, Moors for the Future’s bumblebee survey asks volunteers to take a regular walk along a set route. Along the way, record sightings of three bumblebee species: bilberry bumblebee, tree bumblebee and red-tailed bumblebee. Repeat once a month if possible – although any data you can collect and submit will be useful.

Young recyclers are benefiting from a blooming marvellous community fund. Matlock Pre-School Playgroup and Darley Dale Primary School have been awarded £2,000 by Derbyshire Dales District Council and its waste and recycling contractor Serco to help them grow environmental projects. In Matlock, £950 has helped the playgroup create a vegetable plot and flower garden and to run a weekly gardening club to maintain the plot and harvest the vegetables into healthy snacks. A group spokesperson said: “We want the children to develop an understanding of minimising waste by picking only what they need, and the importance of recycling vegetable peelings and other food waste.” In Darley Dale, the primary school is using a £1,065 grant to grow vegetables, fruit and flowers - and some of the produce will be taken to the school kitchen to make soup and cake. Chairman of the District Council's Community & Environment Committee, Councillor Jo Wild said: “Latest official recycling figures from the Rural Services Network show that the Dales is one of the best recycling districts in the whole of England. “Since Serco took over our household collections three years ago, the amount Derbyshire Dales residents recycle and compost has risen to almost 56% of all waste, which is the best figure in Derbyshire - and campaigns such as this joint fund continue to encourage our communities to make recycling a priority.” A total of £6,000 is available every year to Derbyshire Dales community groups including schools, parish and town councils, voluntary organisations and

charities – and another beneficiary in the latest round of grants was the Transition Wirksworth waste and recycling group, which received £130 to buy wheeled barrows to assist with the effective separation and transportation of recyclable materials during litter-picking community events.

The Roses Of Eyam

This year marks the 350 anniversary of the outbreak of The Plague in Eyam and this event was commemorated by a production of the play ‘The Roses of Eyam’. Written originally by Don Taylor and published in 1970, the play was adapted by Nicola Wright as a promenade play to be performed on the main street of Eyam. The cottages, now known as ‘The Plague Cottages’ where villagers lived and died during the outbreak of 1665/1666, formed the backdrop for the action. This true tale is a gripping one. The play begins with the arrival in Eyam of a horse and cart laden with cloth and garments from London. Unbeknown to the villagers they were infested with fleas carrying the deadly plague and very soon afterwards deaths from bubonic plague ensued. The play charts the 13 months of isolation, self-sacrifice and heartbreak amongst the villagers. Thomas Stanley, the evicted former rector, made an unlikely alliance with William Mompesson, the in-comer who had taken his living, to persuade the

The Sheffield Folk Chorale, who will be singing in Saint Martin’s Church on Sunday 26th July at 7.30pm, have performed previously during Stoney Middleton’s Well Dressings, in 2008 and 2013, and also just before Christmas in 2009. Since the Folk Chorale was formed in 2001 they have gone from strength to strength. At the start the aim was simply to get together a choir to put on a carol concert at Christmas featuring some less wellknown carols and songs. That original concert of 2001 was so successful they decided to sing on! Liverpool-born Eileen and London-born Graham Pratt have been playing on the folk circuit since the early 1970s. They met at Swansea University and helped to run the college folk club there. They moved to London, then Gloucestershire where they sang in 4 and 5 part harmony groups as well as touring the professional club and festival scene as a duo. Sheffield became their home in 1981. In addition to harmony work, their act focuses on Eileen's voice accompanied by Graham's guitar, harmonium, keyboard and English concertina. Their performances also feature Graham's songwriting,


Sheffield Folk Chorale singing in St. Martin’s Church in 2013 which fulfils the folk brief of having good tunes, narrative lyrics and strong harmonies. The Sheffield Folk Chorale is now an 80-strong choir of which about 35 singers will be coming to St. Martin’s Church. They perform 4-part arrangements of traditional songs, and their selection this time will include Graham’s setting of the Agincourt Carol, as their contribution to our celebration of the 600th anniversary of the founding of St. Martin’s. For this concert the price for entry, payable at the door, will be £8, which will include interval refreshments. Do come along! They have made a number of recordings and the details of their CDs can be found on their website: www.grahamandeileenpratt.

BAKEWELL MEANS BUSINESS Over 70 leaders of small businesses and social enterprises gathered in Bakewell Town Hall last week in an initiative aimed at helping them gain the knowledge and information to pitch for locally available public sector contracts. The event, chaired by Phil Stanyer, was organised by the East Midlands Chamber in partnership with the three Peak District local authorities and the University of Derby. In welcoming the delegates, business consultant Peter Barlow stressed the importance to Bakewell of this form of event in developing the town as a commercial centre as well as an agricultural one. To this end, he said, the Trustees to the Town Hall had already invested heavily on providing a range of first class facilities for business usage, and will be continuing to do so in the future.

with choking and serious bleeding to cardiac arrest. Mrs Wain, who has been trained to deliver the programme in school for several years, teaches the children to stay calm, act quickly and apply the skills that they learn in a safe way, all of which may increase a person’s chance of survival. Jodie Huntington (Y6) said, “It’s important that we know what to do quickly and hopefully someone might be alive that could have died. It’s fun learning about it, although it can be a bit scary too!”

THE ROTARY CLUB OF BAKEWELL AND LOCAL BANDS STEP IN TO HELP TIDESWELL On a very hot July 1st evening at the Recreation Ground in Bakewell, The Rotary Club of Bakewell held its fifth annual ‘Brass in the Park’ concert. This year even bigger crowds, approaching 500, came to bring picnics and enjoy this wonderful musical event. Bakewell Silver Band, Cressbrook and Tideswell Bands provided the music with Tideswell Band members performing using borrowed equipment following the devastating fire at their band room during the early hours of Sunday 28th June. It was with great pleasure that new Bakewell Rotary President, Mike Webb, was able to present Tideswell Band with a cheque for £150 at the concert and announce that this year the ‘Brass in the Park’ collection, which is always donated to local

causes, would go to helping with the restoration of the band’s facilities. The collection totalled in

excess of £1000 – a record for the event – and is a reflection of the fantastic generosity of the audience

DERBYSHIRE READING CHALLENGE 2015 WINNERS! A team of avid readers from Highfields competed against 36 teams from 21 other Derbyshire schools on Wednesday 24th June in the annual literature quiz at Tupton Hall school and topped the table throughout. Answering questions on topics ranging from nursery rhymes and Shakespeare through to the latest children’s authors and books, such as this year’s Carnegie Award winner announced recently, the team of Lily Theakston (y7), Imogen Boshier

(y8), George Davidson (y8) and Jack Neath (y9) displayed a great breadth

of reading knowledge and prodigious feats of recall to take an early lead

which they held until the end. With rounds including anagrams of authors’ names and identifying titles and authors from sections of book covers as well as more straightforward questions, all participants were well tested. Highfields’ librarian, Ian Whittington, said, “I am so proud of Highfields’ Bibliophiles! They displayed an impressive knowledge about literature and are a great credit to the school and their families.”

Visitors enjoyed a look behind the scenes during Whitworth Hospital’s open day, when NHS careers advice was also on offer. Cordelia Stephens and parents Lee and Ros Stephens from Bonsall, Matlock, were among more than 100 people who came through the doors to chat to staff and tour the newly improved facilities after a £2.4 million modernisation. They are pictured with Sally Clarke, podiatry services manager, who was on hand to promote the services offered within the hospital’s podiatric surgery department. Whitworth Hospital, which is part of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, is this year celebrating its 125th anniversary, with the help of Matlock Hospitals League of Friends, whose fundraising on behalf of the hospital has contributed to the refurbishment. Jonathan Sanderson, general manager for health services provided at Whitworth Hospital, said: “We had a steady stream of visitors through the door and it was nice to see people of all ages. The younger people were interested to know about the sort of careers the NHS can offer and some of our older visitors were keen to see how the hospital has changed over the years.”

Face painting for children, refreshments and live music provided by members of the League of Friends were some of the attractions on offer, as well as representatives from various clinical professions on hand to explain their roles. “There was a lovely atmosphere. We had some very nice feedback from people who in different circumstances might be anxious about a visit to hospital. Next time they need to come in for care they will be a bit more familiar with it all,” added Jonathan. Details about what is

COMPETITION SUCCESS Peak Echoes, a fiction anthology by Writers in the Peak has been named runner-up in Writing Magazine’s Writers’ Circle Anthology Award 2015. The award is sponsored by Writing Magazine, the UK’s largest publication dedicated to writing and writers. The Writers’ Circle Anthology Award is open to writers’ groups across the country, many of whom regularly publish anthologies. Peak Echoes, featuring stories set in and around the Peak District, is only the group’s second attempt at producing a collection of their work and their first to include colour photographs by local photographer Chris Gilbert. The magazine praised Chris’s photography and how geographical information had been included with each story. They said: (Peak Echoes) is sure to appeal to visitors and locals as a guide to the area in fiction form. The Peak District National Park Authority supported Peak Echoes and enabled it to be published professionally by Glassball Art Projects. The anthology is on sale now in many local outlets and profits are being used to set up and support local writing projects such as the recently published Little Echoes, an anthology written by children aged 5-11 from schools in Bakewell, Chesterfield, Curbar and Tideswell. WitP have also set up Youth Writers in the Peak, for writers aged 1419, and an anthology of work from these young writers is planned for publication at the end of the year, again funded by WitP via Peak Echoes. To order copies of our books and find out how you or your school can get involved in Little Echoes 2016, join our Youth Group, or if you are a local writer, either established or ‘just dabbling’ and would like to join us, please contact us through our website www.writersinthepeak.wor or come along to the Rutland Arms,

For more information about all three surveys see uk/communityscience/surveys. The plight of the bumblebee Bumblebees are in trouble, say the Bumblebee Conservation Trust (BBCT) (www.bumblebeeconservati Of the UK’s 24 bumblebee species, two –

short-haired bumblebee and Cullum’s bumblebee – have become nationally extinct in the last 80 years, although the former is being reintroduced. Of the other species, seven are in decline, and 11 are of conservation importance. Finding out about bumblebee numbers, by taking part in a survey – along with other helpful actions, such as nectar-rich planting and providing bumblebee nesting sites –

can really help this vital pollinator. BBCT has two bumblebee surveys that you can participate in – and the charity is especially interested in receiving results from the Peak District, as part of its Pollinating the Peak campaign. BeeWatch involves taking digital photographs of bumblebees – particularly any unusual species that you spot – and uploading them

to the BBCT website. It’s an excellent way to improve your knowledge of different bumblebee species, as the BeeWatch tool on the website will guide you through the identification process. If you are confident about your identification skills, why not try a BeeWalk? This involves walking a fixed route of 1-2km each month and recording all the bumblebees you see – an ideal activity for sunny

summer days! Following the same route allows the BBCT to compare bumblebee population trends over time. There are identification resources online, or you can upload photographs of difficult-to-identify species to the online BBCT forum, where a team of bumblebee enthusiasts is on hand to help. BeeWatch and BeeWalk are fun activities to do with children too – and even young children can identify some of our more common bumblebees. At Stanton-inPeak Primary School the children have been learning more about the wild plants, animals and insects that share their school grounds. One of these is the whitetailed bumblebee – which, as the name suggests, has a white tail along with two distinctive yellow bands across its black body. All the children in the infant class at the school are able to identify this wonderful insect – why not see if you can spot one in your own garden?

Traditions die hard in Derbyshire and Edale is no exception, where the Vicarage garden will be open to the public for the annual church fete on Saturday 8th August from 2-5pm. The garden is transformed into a busy market place with stalls selling books, gifts and homemade cakes, and there are games for all ages. In fact, a perfect afternoon to the accompaniment of a live band – the New Orleans Strollers. “It’s always a popular day in our church calendar”, says organiser Denise Thwaites. “We know people love

tradition and we will be offering many of the usual ingredients such as secondhand books, toys, bric-a-brac and white elephant”. She urges people to bring the whole family as there are games for all ages, a coconut shy, and a bouncy castle for the little ones. Refreshments are always on hand with home made cream teas or fresh strawberry pavlovas. The money raised goes towards the upkeep of the church. Entry is £1.50 for adults and 50p for children over 5. You will find parking close by for a small fee – look out for the signs.

St. Crispin’s Day OCTOBER 25TH 1415

Outnumbered four to one, the English and Welsh longbow men unleashed “a terrifying hail of arrow shots”, in the words of a French monk of St. Denis, at the charging French cavalry. This barrage created mayhem as mounted knights retreated into their own men at arms advancing on foot. The quagmire caused by heavy overnight rain and the chaotic withdrawal made matters even worse. Thousands were killed or taken prisoner. Thus began the Battle of Agincourt when a numerically superior French army was defeated by the forces of King Henry V. Amongst the English King’s army was one particular soldier from Hathersage. He was Robert Eyre who, it is said, used to meet his sweetheart Joanna Bernake de Padley, heiress to the Padley estates, near

Stitch &


the warm spring in Stoney Middleton. When Robert Eyre, aged 23, announced his intention to fight in the French wars, Joan Padley, who was 15 years old at the time, promised to build a Well Chapel at their meeting place and dedicate it to St Martin of Tours, if he returned safe after the Battle of Agincourt. He did return and a chapel was built which became our church. The original tower still stands today. In common with the warm spring in The Nook, it was dedicated to St Martin. In the church of St Michael and All Angels, Hathersage, is a font bearing the words “The font is dated about 1450. Its three shields bear the arms of the Eyre, Padley and Bernake families. (Robert Eyre and Joan Padley’s brass is in the sanctuary and her mother was a Bernake from Stoney Middleton”.

GET A FLYING START TO YOUR ROUND AT HOPE WORKS GOLF CLUB Readers of the Peak Advertiser might find this photograph both amusing and interesting. It shows an RAF search and rescue helicopter landing on the fairway of the first hole at Hope Works Golf Club. The explanation is that the Edale Mountain Rescue Team have their base at the Cement Works which sits alongside our club. Obviously visiting golfers and new members can find this a little disconcerting.

course. We find it is generally wise to move on to the next hole as getting too close can result in hats and golf trolleys being blown across the course, especially when it is taking off. Many readers may also be surprised to find that there is more than one golf course in the Hope Valley, even those who frequently visit and walk the surrounding hills will probably never have seen the course as it is well hidden by the many trees around it. Now they know; if they see a big helicopter disappear from view that’s where it’s gone.

Not to be outdone by the official WI Garden Party in Buckingham Palace we decided to have our own Garden Party in Bradwell. OK, the weather could have been kinder, heavy rain and powerful winds forced us indoors, but we pulled out all the stops, bedecked our hall in colourful bunting and, dressed to the nines, had a delightful time sipping Pimms, eating strawberries and cream and tucking into a piece of scrumptious fruit cake made from the WI’s traditional recipe.

BRADWELL – of Sterling Worth and Integrity The Derbyshire historian Glover, who visited Bradwell in the late 1820s, appeared to be particularly impressed with the early marriages favoured by the local inhabitants. Glover handed down to future generations the fact that: ‘The young people here of both sexes generally marry at the age of 18.’ With these few words he dismisses the subject. Around 30 years later, William Wood, an historian of Eyam and for whom Bradwell was a favourite spot, commented: ‘Like all other mountain-hid villages, it contains a population strongly marked by peculiarities of custom, retaining notions of a highly superstitious nature, and most pugnaciously tenacious of their numerous time-honoured, antique

usages. Here, to a deplorably excessive degree, inter-marriage exists, and have existed for ages.’ Bernard Bird, in his Perambulations of Barney, the Irishman (1850), also had something to say about this deeply held practice, observing: ‘The attachment of the inhabitants of Bradwell to their own people is very strong; they seldom or never inter-marry with strangers, and are a community of relations, consisting of about 300 families, or 1,500 inhabitants ... I have traded with the inhabitants for 38 years, and in justice to them must say that I have always found them (without exception) of sterling worth and integrity.’ It must be in the blood!

Carnival Day was blessed with good weather, really good entrants both walking and on wheels. There was a good collect and great support from visitors and Bakewellians. Lots more cars and lorries on the classic concourse, thanks to Keith Wright for arranging this event. The Sunday outdoor United Church Service was well attended. The duck race later was bigger than ever with 1450 little yellow ducks sailing down the River Wye. There were 5 winners this year, 1st No. 454, 2nd No. 423, 3rd No.

Bakewell Carnival week started with the Day of Dance, very popular with visitors and locals, six different venues around town where the audience watched the dancers and really enjoyed the music. The fell race went well as did the blessing of the wells, as well as the wells being blessed some of the children watching got wet as well. The walking treasure hunt from the Queens had good weather on Sunday evening. Monday 29th June the raft race practice was a success, no rafts sank, one or two fell to bits but were soon mended for the race on Thursday night. The raft race got off with 126 rafts put in the river in 35 minutes. A big thank you to Sam and Matthew who were helping in the river, Tina timing all the rafts in and Tim and Jo recording the time out. Also thanks to all the stewards and

BAKEWELL SHOW Exciting changes are taking place at Bakewell Show – on August 5th and 6th with a dedicated equestrian day on August 4th – as organisers work hard to keep it fresh and relevant in its 185th year. There is a new website and the Wye Valley showground has been revamped following the merger of Members and Patrons last year. Entertainment facilities have been switched to the other side of the centre ring where the new marquee will serve lighter bites for those not wanting full catering. The freed-up space will see more trade stands, food courts and seating for the general public. The village green will be

bigger with its own Farmers’ Market and the Centre Ring attraction is the exciting Knights of the Damned with spectacular displays of jousting and bravery.

Set in the heart of the pretty village of Stanton in Peak the pub retains the charm of a ‘proper’ British pub – where good real ale is top of the menu! Behind the bar you will find Wells Bombardier as a regular plus two changing guest ales, often from breweries in and around the area but also some from further afield. The aim is

quality at a reasonable price. Also available – various bottled beers, ciders and a small selection of house and other wines. We have a lovely beer garden for warm days. The pub is hugely dog friendly with doggy treats behind the bar (or in the pockets of some of the locals!) We hope you will always find a warm welcome here.

Do You Have The Prettiest Hen? If you do then bring her along to Sheldon Day on July 25th and she could win a rosette! Sheldon Day is back again this year with the family pet and poultry show always a big favourite alongside all the other fun village stalls and activities. This year we’ve got everything from cakes, jams and other produce (get there quick because they all go early in the afternoon), Cream Teas in the Village Hall, Splat-the-rat, Welly Wanging and a coconut shy, as well as the usual stalls like plants, books and brica-brac. Next to the pub we’ve got the ever-popular Chocolate Tombola and Bottle Darts, as well as the Grand Raffle and many other stalls. Don’t forget to buy a tennis ball for the Great Ball Run at 4.30pm, when 300 balls are released down the village street in one go! We are welcoming back The Ashbourne Brass Band who will be accompanying the afternoon from 2.00pm outside the pub and our favourite Magician who will be on the playing field doing shows throughout the afternoon. There will be a flower show in the church and a delicious hog roast in the main street, as well as ice creams on sale. The Poultry Show, Produce tent and Fun Dog Show will be on the playing

field again, along with the Steam Engines and hopefully more vintage cars and tractors than ever before. There is also a minifarm again, where we are hoping to have a few more exciting and different animals this year – come and see what we’ve got! Most exciting of all – there are rumours we will have a mini Steam Train on the field. So come and see whether it’s big enough for a ride! That’s just some of it! So come along on Saturday July 25th at 2.00pm.

Trifles, Tea And A Little Rum

Peakland communities have a long tradition of getting together for special gatherings. The annual party at Birchover, for example, used to be held in the Reading Room, each family contributing something to the feast. Trestle tables were stacked with homemade cakes and buns plus sandwiches of salmon, potted meat or egg. A staggering display of trifles was out on show

The Play Mill

songs, but the real star of the show was brought along by Stanley Boam, a Winster butcher. Stan would lift onto the billiard table a diminutive man with long sideburns who worked on a farm at Wensley. Then came the exciting announcement: ‘Roger will now sing for you, in Italian, the Isle of Capri.’ The performer duly sang five verses to the right tune but with just Re-Ri and Ro’s till he was quite out of breath. The show was over for another year.

Community teas Primitive Methodist Chapels and the Independent Order of Rechabites organised community teas in many villages, where everyone took their own mug for a drink of tea and also their cutlery, wrapping a few loops of coloured wool around knife, fork and spoon as identification. Even then you didn’t always take the right ones home. Peak Forest held a February ‘parochial gathering’ which still went ahead even when there was a foot of snow on the ground. Everyone sat down in the school to a boiled ham tea with home-made cakes, jellies and, in later years, slab cake from the village Co-op. The evening ended with a concert. A carnival was one of the year’s highlights at Tansley. Practically the whole village followed a brass band up to the carnival field where a marquee was laid out with tables piled high with home baking. The afternoon flew by with games and sports, the day ending with a whist drive and dance in the schoolroom. Old English Fare We can also look back a couple of centuries to see how one small village rejoiced at the abdication of Napoleon in 1814 after the endless wars with France. The celebrations were described in a letter sent by an inhabitant to a friend:

‘Parwich, 16 July, 1814. Dear George, Perhaps it may be a treat for you to hear A little of our proceedings at Parwich since your absence. You know we were going to rejoice and show some Loyal tricks when you left us? Our Subscription raised A purse of a little more than £45 which enabled us to purchase 3 cwt of Beef and 10 stone of Flour, with Eggs Fruit &cc Which was made into Plumb pudding, the puddings were made at differant Farm Houses, and when collected together they were Drawn down the Street in a Large Waggon with the Musick Men riding in the waggon and playing God Save the King – about 100 lbs of Beef and as much of the pudding was distributed to poor Families with each Head one penny roll of Bread – this was a very fine treat to the poor children and to the Inhabitants and was on the evening before the rejoicing day. ‘The morning being favourable … there sat as many as 200 people at different times to a very plentyful Dinner. This being over Tea was then ordered for the Ladies and A great provision of Hot cake and Butter with cold Bread and Butter, cream strong Tea & well Suggared, and A little Rum to their Tea, the old Ladies swill’d in this Novalty till they were satisfyed … the Evening was spent with singing and Dancing and to finish the week the two following Evenings were held up by the young Ladies and Gentlemen of the village with Music and Dancing. ‘You will burn this letter when you have read it. I remain Dear Geo. Your Truly JOHN ALSOP’. As a footnote, Ashover bellringers got so carried away with ringing out the news of Napoleon’s abdication that one of their church bells cracked under the strain. Julie Bunting

SUMMER EXHIBITION Sat 18th July - Sun 2nd Aug 10am-5pm

RICHARD WHITTLESTONE Renowned wildlife artist Richard Whittlestone will be holding his Summer Exhibition at his gallery on the Chatsworth Estate between July 18th and August 2nd. A professional painter for the past 27 years, Richard is also celebrating 10 years in his gallery, having first opened in the Summer of 2005. “I cannot believe it is 10 years,” says Richard. “When I first opened, my eldest daughter had just been born, now she regularly helps me in the gallery! Most of Richard’s inspiration is drawn from his wonderful surroundings,

“British wildlife has always appealed to me most, from a wren on a mossy wall to a group of fallow deer drifting through the park, there are paintings everywhere I choose to look,” he continues, “Living and working in a beautiful place

has always been of paramount importance to me and over the past decade I have in point of fact been the Estate’s artist in residence”. Richard’s exquisite paintings which he sells all over the world, capture the very life of the subject

portrayed - and all of course carry his trademark fly hidden somewhere in the composition. The exhibition runs from Saturday 18th July to Sunday 2nd August, 10am - 5pm, every day. Tel. 01246 582720

Handmade in England since 1913 and still thriving, this pottery manufacturer has endured the fluctuations of fashion and economic difficulties. Instantly recognised by its distinctly colourful patterns, to describe their wares as pottery really doesn’t do it justice, more likely the term ‘ceramic art’ helps to convey how the Moorcroft company has led the world of art pottery with its innovative designs. Founder William Moorcroft had great ambition and saw his company and his designs gain high regard. Exhibiting at major commercial shows earned him awards. Queen Mary became a collector, bestowing the Royal Warrant in 1928. His son Walter followed on, bringing in new designs

How Big Do You Like Your Model Railway? It was once estimated there were around 50 different model railway gauges and standards throughout the world, how true this is is uncertain. However here in the UK by far the most popular size is ‘OO’ being dominated by the ready to run manufacturers such as Bachmann and Hornby amongst many others. However for those with very little space how about Z

Once in a rare while, whispers of gold have been heard around the Peak, including finds linked to Wirksworth, Millers Dale and Bakewell. In 1854 true gold was apparently found in iron pyrites – ‘fool’s gold’ – from the Cow Close lead mine in Lathkill Dale. Samples were sent for analysis, as reported in the Illustrated London News of 24 Jun 1854: ‘The Derbyshire gold-diggings, of which the Crown is the owner, promise to be worth looking after. The stuff analysed contains twenty-five ounces of silver per ton, and an ounce and a half of gold.’ Several mining companies proposed installing newlydeveloped machinery which could remove fine particles of gold from rock. One proposed venture would entail building a crushing mill in the dale but permission was refused; the machinery was set up in an old mill at Brough instead. Investors in the mine saw their shares leap to ÂŁ25, then ÂŁ30. Those who sold out at that stage would be the only speculators to profit from Peakland gold. The venture lasted barely a year – gold was present in such small quantities that extraction was not viable. Brough crushing mill was sold for ÂŁ30 – a loss of almost ÂŁ700 – and the excitement of the ‘strike’ was forgotten by all but the locals, ever hopeful of a fresh find. For many years afterwards one elderly chap would tell how he had found a gold nugget as big as half a pea in Lathkill Dale, and the lead mine was still referred to as the gold mine almost within living memory. Pan for gold In 1933 a young geologist named John Wells, FRGS, carried out surveys for gold in the Peak after studying old records. On 17 June of that year he told a reporter from the Manchester City News: ‘There is gold in the Derbyshire Peak District – at a spot very well known to thousands of Manchester hikers. It is going to be our business to find it.’ If the optimistic Mr Wells struck lucky, he appears to have kept it as quiet as he did the location. During 1944, minute

particles of silver accompanied the find of gold at a basalt quarry in the Via Gellia below Ible. Gold was back in the headlines in the early 1990s, when analysts at Sheffield University confirmed that volcanic lava from Matlock Bath contained gold at 37 grammes per tonne, a very respectable quality ore. Samples had been taken from Temple Mine, a 1920s lead and fluorspar mine. Pure Silver The story of silver in the Peak goes back much further than that of gold. Roman pigs of local lead have been found to contain traces of silver. The Domesday Survey refers to the payment of £40 of pure silver by the manors of Darley, Matlock, Wirksworth, Ashbourne and Parwich. Records of 1656 tell of troops despatched to Youlgrave after local lead miners threatened violence to any outsiders who intended searching their workings for silver. During the previous century, silver had been recorded in Nester Mine on Masson Hill – no great distance from the lead veins later worked so successfully by owners of Ball Eye mine near Bonsall. Ball Eye is particularly associated with silver, including claims of up to 20 ounces per ton of lead. Glover, in The History and Gazetteer of the County of Derby around 1829, noted that several vessels had been made from Ball Eye silver. They included a tankard, a salver and two small tumbler cups, at one time in the possession of Mr Milnes of Ashover. The process of separating silver at Ball Eye was abandoned after a few years as too expensive and far too wasteful to the ever-precious lead. Nevertheless, between 1859–1870 Derbyshire lead ore produced 14,194 ounces of silver. Lead mines of further potential interest included Millclose at Darley, Odin Mine at Castleton and Mill Dam at Hucklow. Even so, the low quantities of silver generally made it too costly to recover and, despite all the exciting reports of silver and gold, the most precious mineral wealth of the Peak remained good, solid lead.

As for the smallest gauge a trip to Japan is required – where else? – where in 2006 T gauge was developed with a track width of just 3mm which is half the size of Z gauge! Tweezers and eye glass compulsory with all purchases.

Having found a new home in the week of the local Wakes celebrations, the annals of Winster F.C. were once again dusted down to bring together two teams for the popular Over 30’s v Under 30’s annual fixture. In an entertaining game and despite a commendable show by the more senior ensemble, it was once again the younger generation who took their third consecutive win to retain the Jonathan Harper Charity Cup. In a not unsurprising start to the fixture the Over 30’s seemed to be stuck in first gear for the opening few minutes, during which the Under 30’s took full advantage with their pace and direct play. Only four minutes had been played when George Dronfield produced a calm finish past the onrushing keeper to put the young Winster team ahead. However, as the glorious early evening summer sunshine seemed to warm up stiff limbs, it became increasingly

difficult to notice the disparity in ages of the two teams and for long periods the Under 30’s looked unsettled. Across the Over 30’s midfield, Andy Tann, Stuart Person and Iain Simpson began to frustrate their younger counterparts with not allowing the time or composure they needed, whilst Simon Percival went close with a headed attempt, as did Josh Weston who came within touching distance of an equaliser with a close range effort. As the attacking play began to take shape, the back four - and true Winster legends - Julian Piggot, John Prime, Danny Wood and Martin Carson rolled back the years to entertain the large crowd with Cruyff turns and Bremner tackles whilst carrying out their defensive duties. On the few occasions when the defence was breached, Dave Robinson in goal managed to palm away the danger to frustrate the Under 30’s on several occasions.

With half an hour played, Manager of the Under 30’s – Anthony Porter – must have seen enough to be concerned and sent on Scott Spencer to bolster their attack. It turned out to be a timely intervention as with a fresh injection of pace and long range shooting ability, Spencer personally added two goals within the space of ten minutes and give a rather unreflective 3-0 half time scoreline. Following the interval, it was the Over 30’s who once again began to stamp their authority on the fixture and when Billy Lester invited a clumsy challenge inside the area from a mesmerized defence, a penalty was awarded with just five minutes played. Stepping up to take the opportunity himself, Lester made the most of the goalkeeper’s fear of powerful shots and brutally despatched the spot kick. Unable to quickly add more goals to further close the gap, the Over 30’s began

to drop deep into their own half as the fitness of the Under 30’s once again began to show as the half wore on. A fluidity and fluency of movement began to flow through the younger side and gaps began to open up in which to exploit. First to benefit from the newly found space was Ben Harrison who, despite getting booked for diving minutes earlier as a result of the keen eyed refereeing of Jack Harrison, stayed on his feet to finish from six yards out. As the trickle of attacks became waves, much was being orchestrated from Anthony Porter in the centre of midfield and when he found Liam Ashton in space, Ashton still had work to do before he finally finished from a tight angle with a ferocious strike, completing the 5-1 scoreline. In what was another successful and well supported fixture, over £150 was raised for local charities.

EIGHT LOTS OF SUCCESS FOR ESTATE AGENT’S SUMMER AUCTION The latest auction hosted by leading estate agent ELR attracted a record number of bidders earlier this week, with seven of the nine lots selling at above the guide price. More than 150 people attended the event which took place at the Derbyshire-based Maynard Arms and saw experienced auctioneer and company director Nick Riddle take the helm. A two-acre plot of woodland in Froggatt was the first lot to go under the hammer – selling for the guide price of £20k. The second lot, a detached three-bed bungalow based on the outskirts of the charming village of Castleton, sold for more than £100k over the guide price of £250k-

despite being in need of some modernisation and refurbishment. The lot’s buyer went on to bid on a piece of adjacent land, a 1.5 acre paddock which was sold for £42k. A unique four bedroom stone built property in Bradwell sold for £300k£50k over the guide price – and was quickly followed by the sale of lot five; a bungalow with ‘roof top’ views of Tideswell village which received a final bid of £285k. Continuing the theme of picturesque properties; set on the banks of the river Wye a three bedroomed cottage just outside Buxton sold for £250k from an auction guide price of £195k. Bidders on lot seven, a

Hathersage-based property that needed ‘serious refurbishment’, recognised the potential of the dilapidated two bed semi-detached house and the property sold for an ‘impressive’ £266K - £66K more than it was listed for. The final lot, which auctioneer Nick Riddle told the bidders had ‘near the best views in Derbyshire’ received a frantic surge of bids with a ‘very tense’ atmosphere as the price rose from £535k to a final bid of £805k. “It was very tense at times,” said Nick. “At one point we were in a situation where bids were increasing just one thousand pounds at a time. “The fantastic turnout was a direct result of the

quality of the lots being auctioned, and we are very much looking forward to doing it all over again at the next auction.” Nick went on to say that they have already taken instruction on a number of lots for the next event taking place on the 13th October. “We have taken instruction on several lots so far for the autumn auction, including a dilapidated farm just on the outskirts of Dore and Old Park Cottage overlooking the 13th at Abbeydale Golf Club.” For further information regarding the next auction which will take place at the Maynard Arms in October please contact Nick Riddle or Kerrie Ibbotson on 01433 651888.

DON’T PUT YOUR SALE ON HOLD OVER SUMMER, SAYS BAGSHAWS RESIDENTIAL The local housing market has seen a surge in activity during the summer months over the past few years, according to local estate agency Bagshaws Residential in Bakewell. As part of its national network Sequence, Bagshaws Residential has recorded a staggering 36% increase on exchanges made in July 2013 compared to the previous year, and a further increase of nearly 12% in July 2014. Bagshaws Residential is anticipating another rise in activity this year and is urging prospective sellers not to delay putting their property on the market, as summer could be the perfect time to find a buyer. With interest from

potential buyers building and demand for properties growing rapidly, Branch Manager Liz Agar at Bagshaws Residential believes that now is the ideal time for sellers to put their house on the market: “Many people think that the housing market slows down during the summer months, but actually in the past few years we have seen it pick up. Prospective sellers really should take advantage of the market this summer as we expect it to be another very busy period for us. “One reason houses sell so well over the summer months is because of the sun – it makes everything look better,” continues Liz. “With this in mind, we would advise sellers to

ensure their houses are in the best condition, making sure they are light, airy and clutter free, with well kept gardens. First impressions are so important.” Sellers needn’t worry if they have a holiday planned either - they need only notify their estate agent of the dates of any holidays that they have planned, and then arrangements can be made for access and viewings in their absence.

nt i r P

With this is in mind, Bagshaws Residential is urging prospective sellers to get in touch now to take full advantage of the current buoyant market. It could be the perfect time for sellers to find their ideal buyer. If you have a property to sell and would like to book a free market appraisal with Bagshaws Residential, please contact the branch on 01629 814774 or email:

At his final meeting as President of the Wirksworth Rotary Club, Tony Wheeler made presentations to two Wirksworth Residents in recognition of their achievements. Jenny Acons received the Community Award for her work at the Wirksworth Music Centre at Anthony Gell School. Jenny is a founder member of the Centre which caters for children from reception to year 13 and has been teaching and supporting young musicians for 22 years. The Centre is attended by around 60 young musicians every week. Jenny and her team of experienced and talented teachers have helped develop many adult amateur and professional musicians who readily acknowledge what they gained from attending the centre. The award was for her amazing hard work and inspirational endeavours in the community of Wirksworth.

The second presentation of a certificate and a monetary award was for George Peck, a year 11 student at Anthony Gell School who was Young Photographer of the Year. To win his title George submitted a portfolio of his photographs illustrating the theme of ‘Light Up Your Community’ featuring photographs taken during theatre productions from the Wirksworth Festival and others of local groups. George is a keen photographer and hopes to go to university to read for a degree in geography.

BAGSHAWS RESIDENTIAL SUCCESSFUL LETTINGS TEAM NEEDS MORE HOMES Local lettings agent Bagshaws Residential in Bakewell is calling on all landlords and investors with vacant properties to get in touch. Business is booming and the huge demand for properties to let is outweighing the supply of rental homes, creating a huge opportunity for landlords and buy-to-let investors. The lettings team is led by manager Jenni Knight who has a wealth of experience in the estate agency trade and is well placed to advise local tenants and work alongside landlords and investors. “The local lettings market in and around Bakewell is extremely busy at the moment,” says Jenni. “We have just experienced two of our busiest months to date since opening the branch at the start of 2014, and currently have a long list of tenants who are looking for properties to rent. We have seen a huge increase in the amount of lettings we have agreed on the first viewing, and now desperately need more two, three and four bedroom cottages, in particular around Hope Valley, Buxton, Matlock and Chesterfield. “We are the experts in our field – helping landlords find tenants, tenants find good accommodation, managing and helping expand property portfolios,” continues Jenni. “Anyone renting through us

can rest assured they are dealing with a large and wellregulated, ARLA-qualified letting agent which will conduct professional inventories, provide a tailor made approach and is a member of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.” Bagshaws Residential in Bakewell offers a range of lettings services and advice, from matching tenants to their ideal properties to full property management, rent collection and insurance advice. If you have a property to let, or are looking for a rental home, please contact the lettings team on 01629 815239 or email: b a k e w e l l l e t @

Students at Matlock’s All Saints Junior School are celebrating after finding out they will compete in the Kwik Cricket county finals next month. The Rural Derbyshire School Sport Partnership (RDSSP) hosted its Kwik Cricket semi-final competition on Wednesday 10 June at Darley Dale Cricket Club. The contest saw All Saints Junior pupils come together with Curbar Primary School, Parkside Junior School in Ashbourne and Kirk Ireton C of E Primary School. The sun shone as youngsters enjoyed games on two Kwik Cricket pitches – they faced each other before an ultimate game to determine the overall winner. After a very final game; coming down to the last two balls of the final over, Curbar came out victorious with All Saints Junior School in silver medal winning position. In a twist of fate, it has been announced that Curbar students are unable to

attend the county finals in July due to being on a school residential trip, so All Saints Junior pupils will take their place. All Saints Junior School Teaching Assistant, Rachel Sergeant said: “It is fantastic to see the children working together and enjoying team work. It also gives them the opportunity to try different sports in school and try something new – they love taking part!” Parent, Carla Eyre was there on the day to support students from All Saints Junior School. She said: “Events like these are really good fun and it

is great for the children to have support from the sidelines. They are also really important – not all children have the opportunity to play in competitions like this, so it gives them great chances to get involved.” Curbar Head Teacher, Anthony Tierney said: “It is great to take part in competitions and festivals like this because we’re a small, rural school so it’s good for the children to mix with youngsters from other schools. It’s also good that there is a nice mix of girls and boys here, as they all help each other.”

11-year-old Charlie Kennedy from Kirk Ireton said: “I love playing team sports with my friends. I sometimes get to see my friends from other sports that I play outside of school including water polo, tennis, hockey and cricket.” Fellow Kirk Ireton pupil, Edie Neville, also 11, said: “You get to meet lots of different people from different schools and make lots of friends. You can also meet people who are going to the same high school as you and get to know them.” 10-year-old Isaac Woody Harrington from Parkside said: “I have enjoyed the batting and fielding.” 11-year-old Luke Griffiths also from Parkside said: “I like to try and enjoy new sports. It’s healthy and active to get out and enjoy sports and also working together with my friends. Sometime we fall out but we always resolve in the end and that’s good.”

the area and was established in 1929. Extracting limestone and shale laid down some 330 million years ago, the quarry is 170 metres deep and has 13 working faces like terraces or steps laid out into the side of the hill. Returning to the road leading to Green Dale I passed over what appeared on the OS map to be the route of Batham Gate, the former Roman Road leading from Navio to Buxton. However just beyond this I turned left onto the most fabulous grassy track leading down towards Bradwell, set amidst a patchwork of glorious hay meadows speckled with wild flowers but just at the point of being mown and baled should the current dry spell continue.

I had the idea that I fancied an industrial walk around the perimeter of a quarry, a sort of ‘cement trail’ into the hills surrounding Bradwell. However, apart from the tall chimney which is a long established landmark of the Hope Valley, I actually saw little of the large cement works complex as it is so well camouflaged by matured landscaping. Instead I discovered fabulous paths, old tracks and a quiet and very scenic road. Also, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many wild flowers, butterflies and birds in one place! Add a scattering of old field barns, traditional hay meadows and fabulous views and my walk turned into a really enjoyable ramble. I parked not far from the public toilets in Bradwell and followed the little Bradwell Brook to the main street at Towngate with its promenade of shops and stores. After walking along to Netherside I turned up Town Lane to walk past the playing fields on my right and then crossed straight over to follow a track that later became a bridleway. After passing Michlow Orchard my route became an undulating path between fields before descending into dark woodland where moss covered a series of lumpy bumpy spoil heaps, now hidden beneath the trees. Although there was a constant hum from the cement works I could clearly hear birds flitting about in the undergrowth. I caught the occasional glimpse of fabricated buildings and the iconic chimney which rises some 132 metres into the sky. At one point I went past a massive low roof on my right made up of a vast slope of corrugated sheeting which evidently houses the stone store


and appeared through the trees like the base to some long lost pyramid. Taking heed of warning signs and keeping to the bridlepath which was clearly signposted I made my way to Pindale, emerging at Pindale Cottage with its date stone of 1854. Centuries ago the main road from Castleton to Hope would have passed through Pindale as the valley below was marshland and bog. It later became a thrive of industrial activity as this side of the valley was extensively mined for lead with rich deposits of ore to be found in the limestone hills. From here I headed directly uphill beside Black Rabbit Barn on a very stony track that seemed to ascend for ages but it was most definitely worth it! Pin Dale Scrins on the Dirtlow Rake is a Scheduled Monument and SSSI of national importance as it contains rare plant life that has adapted to the metal rich soils found hereabouts. Worked from at least the 16th century, the scrins are where narrow veins of ore were worked close to the surface. Behind me the Hope Valley amphitheatre of hills was emerging as a vast panorama of spectacular views but it was when I reached the quiet back road from Castleton that the wild flower wonderland truly began. The deep grass verges were peppered with a plethora of pastel shades. There were orchids in abundance, yellow rattle, goatsbeard, birdsfoot trefoil, hawkweed and vetch to name just a few. Skylarks were singing overhead whilst a song thrush serenaded me from a little copse of trees in a melodious solo performance – it sounded

more like Spring than a very warm summers day! Little blue butterflies flitted about beside their red admiral cousins whilst bees bumbled and crickets chirruped. It took me ages to walk the mile or so along the road as there were too many camera opportunities that I didn’t want to miss. My favourite image of the day turned out to be a macro shot of a goatsbeard gone to seed like a giant dandelion clock with long spidery tendrils. I then went on a short detour to a viewing platform into the giant limestone quarry workings where I gazed in awe at large plant and equipment reduced to miniature microdot dinky toys far below. This quarry is part of Hope Construction Materials, Britain’s leading independent supplier of cement, concrete and aggregates producing 1.5 million tonnes of cement annually. It must surely be the largest employer in

After a right towards Outlands Head I then descended a lovely footpath to Jeffrey Lane, completing my walk with a stroll down picturesque Hollowgate with its tiered cottages and backdrop of Bradwell Edge. On the return to my car I couldn’t help but notice that I was on Hungry Lane which stirred my appetite and presented me a quandary – should I head for lunch in one of the local pubs such as the traditional Ye Olde Bowling Green or the revamped Samuel Fox Country Inn or should I just pop into Bradwell Fisheries for some of their scrumptious cod and chips?
