"Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning" first appeared in the bible in the Gospel of Matthew. It is an old weather saying often used at sunrise and sunset to signify the changing sky and originally known to help the shepherds prepare for the next day's weather.

PAST AGES OF THE PEAK Part 12 – Under The Hanovers After being fleetingly disturbed by the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, the Peak moved towards playing its part in the industrial and agricultural progress about to revolutionise Great Britain. Glimpses of continuing rural poverty appear in contemporary parish records, for example the recording of handouts at Sheen – generally sixpence – given to itinerants in dire need: a dumb man, three sailors, a ship’s carpenter and his family, and to a native of America. The health and fortunes of their ‘betters’ were not forgotten either – during the reign of George 111 (1760-1820), Sheen’s parishioners gave frequent prayers for the safe delivery of Queen Charlotte,

who had 15 children. This same reign brought 2300 Enclosure Acts, laying a new pattern on the land. Common land was enclosed and mile upon mile of drystone walls were built in this part of the country as machinery began to supplement manual labour. Byways became highways and before the end of the century stage and mail coaches were bringing visitors to see the beauties of the Peak District. Buxton grew into a fashionable spa, boasting a fine Crescent given by the Duke of Devonshire out of impressive profits from his Ecton copper mines. Smaller towns and villages specialised in cottage industries; lace was woven by the womenfolk of

Middleton by Youlgrave, while at Tideswell, Eyam and Bradwell homespun woollen hose gave way to silk – for those who could afford it. Cotton spinning and weaving was carried out at Alport, Stoney Middleton and the Hope Valley. Domestic manufacture, however, was about to be replaced by industrialisation. Richard Arkwright’s world-changing cotton-spinning mill opened at Cromford in 1771. Before the century was out, other mills were being powered by the rivers Wye, Noe and Derwent, with both a bobbin-mill and cotton-tape mill on the Bradford. Waterloo and Trafalgar Much of the new wealth went into building fine houses for merchants, managers and bankers, as at Wirksworth, which gained a number of prosperous 18thcentury townhouses. One short-lived industry here was the manufacture of china, while Wirksworth and other areas continued to benefit from tremendous advances in leadmining. Major soughs were driven, the installation of pumping engines expanded and hearth furnaces were replaced by cupolas. Derbyshire millstones were a major export while other quarries produced

chert – or china stone – for the Staffordshire potteries. Large-scale lime burning meant well-paid work, though Stoney Middleton for example lay under a continuous pall of smoky dust. Many industries benefited from a new method of transport with the advent of the great canal construction era. Both the Cromford and Peak Forest canals were driven in the 1790s. National events of the day revolved around the crises of the Napoleonic Wars, laying demands of a different kind on manpower. Referring again to the parish

We have a range of small plant for hire: • Rotavator • Stump Grinder • 1 Ton Micro Digger • Wood Chipper • Tracked Barrow

Just under 100 people attended a Race Night which has raised £1000 for 3 local charities. Organised by Buxton and High Peak Golf Club and in conjunction with High Peak Radio, Captain Andrew Scowen, Lady Captain Janet Gill and Scott Wanless have now pledged to make this an annual event in aid of Challenge Derbyshire. Scott commented: “We are very grateful to Woods Plant Hire who were our main sponsors and also to all the local companies who sponsored races. This meant that we raised even more for this very worthy campaign.” The ‘Challenge Derbyshire’ campaign was launched by Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice and Helen’s Trust in

order to raise much needed funds to support patients with any life-limiting illness across North Derbyshire. Speaking on behalf of Challenge Derbyshire, Lucy Marsden, Fundraising & Communications Manager at Blythe House Hospice said, ‘We are very grateful to everyone who was involved with the Race Night. Having a diagnosis of cancer or any serious or life-limiting illness is a real challenge for the person and their family. The services provided by Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice and Helen’s Trust are free to use, but not free to provide, so we need your help to continue our vital services and to support these people within the community.”

WI REBELLION KNOLL BRADWELL

Bradwell’s very own Jane Bownes talked to us about Bradwell Ice Cream. She started with the origins of ice cream, possibly from China where they perhaps used goats milk, flour and camphor (!) but it was definitely chronicled in Roman times – the Emperor Nero demanded his slaves fetch ice from the mountains which was then flavoured with honey and fruit pulp. It remained the privilege of the rich until the 19th century when the Italians produced ice cream on a commercial basis selling it in wax paper from barrels. Later, in England, you could purchase a Penny Lick – ice cream served in a glass which you then licked, the glass was then returned for a quick wipe before being reused – not much Health and Hygiene then – more of that later. Over 100 years ago Hannah Bradwell started making and selling ice cream from her front parlour (the present Bradwell Ice Cream Shop). Blocks of ice were brought in from Sheffield by train. Her son later created the first mill on the Brook which generated electricity allowing Hannah to mechanise. Noel, Hannah’s grandson, restarted the business after the war, buying machinery from Italy (still in use today!) and sold ice cream and lollies from his van. He employed Jane’s sister who asked Jane to help out and Jane’s still there! They have been through hard times recently but are now making ½ million litres a year. Now the Health and Hygiene bit: like any other food business – Bradwell’s Ice Cream have to comply with the law (no more Penny Licks and making ice cream in your front room!) and they are rightfully proud of their Grade A British Retail Consortium Certificate. And then the tastings began – salted caramel, raspberry ripple, rum and raisin – wow! Although someone still preferred the grapefruit flavoured lolly Noel sold from the back of his van!

YOULGRAVE ALL SAINTS OFF TO A FLYING START FOR NEW ACADEMIC YEAR

Youlgrave All Saints’ C of E Primary School has experienced a flurry of sporting success, which may well be due to the children’s eagerness and fitness inspired by our afterschool clubs. Rugger Eds has proved very popular, thanks in part to the backdrop of the Rugby World Cup, so much so that Youlgrave’s Year 3/4 team won the small schools tag-rugby competition at Lady Manners School. Early in October we also did well at the Cross Country event held there, after which four of our runners were chosen to represent the school at the regional championships in Ashbourne. The school also recently took part in a football match for the ‘Sports Stars Challenge;’ a series of sporting fixtures against other small schools. Previously, in September, the whole school had enjoyed a trip to Castleton to watch the Tour of Britain and marvel at the cyclists whizzing by. Youlgrave pupils will have the chance to develop their agility and skills even further with two new afterschool clubs that begin after half term – gymnastics and table tennis. Alongside sporting achievement, a number of Youlgrave schoolchildren are also having their short stories published in the Young Writers national writing competition, an initiative aimed at encouraging creative writing and which will see their imaginative stories appear in print. Praise for Youlgrave School from Ofsted: “Good with outstanding features” not only describes our sporting and writing achievements but was also the well-deserved

judgement of Ofsted inspectors when they visited the school at the end of the summer term. Recently appointed headteacher, Heather Stelling, was of course delighted by the outcome and said: “This gives us a superb grounding for the improvements we have already planned and paves the way for an even better learning environment and experience for our children.” The inspector praised the

quality of teaching, the supportive contribution of parents and governors, and the attitude and behaviour of the children themselves who make good academic progress. The full report is available to download from the school web site: www.youlgraveallsaints.co.uk. In other news, the school celebrated harvest this year by joining with the community to put on a harvest festival at the parish church. The children participated in a range of

activities, including reciting a psalm and poem, reading prayers, playing recorders and performing ‘Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow’. A big thank you to everyone who donated food items. All the items from the school and the church have been shared between the Matlock Food Bank and selected residents in the village. The children will now be filling and wrapping shoe boxes of gifts for Operation Christmas Child leading up to Christmas.

LIVE & LOCAL SHINDIG

The “Geordie” boys are coming to Bakewell and bringing their own brand of music. In the first of a series of planned events, Live & Local are staging Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra in the Town Hall on 27th November for a musical evening with a difference. Hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne, Rob and the Orchestra play their own brand of Western Swing, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or, as they put it, “North Eastern Swing”. Whatever it’s called, it’s guaranteed to get feet tapping at a lively musical evening in wintry Bakewell. Uncut Magazine’s review states “Rob Heron evokes the spirit of Bob Willis and Django Reinhardt with a quintet that shuffles and boogies with panache. Infectiously good humoured”. A good evening should be had by all! Tickets at £9 are available from Helen on 01629 810152, or enquiries@bakewelltownhall .co.uk

Pass, would be completed in 1821, just a few years before steam trains transformed travel and transport across the country. Yet simple horsepower worked the Cromford and High Peak Railway for many years following its inception in 1830. In that year William 1V came to the throne. There were now some 2,200 leadminers at work in the Peak. Twenty grindstone quarries were also in operation, with building stone, notably from Hoptonwood quarries, in high demand. Textile trades depended upon the labour of women and children, who comprised 80% of the workforce. The successes of Litton and Cressbrook cotton mills were based on the earlier exploitation of child pauper apprentices. Bleachers and dyers thrived at Lumsdale near Tansley, whilst worsted, fustian and stuffs (woollen fabrics) were spun at Litton and Tideswell. Tiny Bubnell housed hatmakers, and Bradwell turned out hardbrimmed ‘Bradda Beavers’ to protect the heads of lead and copper miners. Ox-horn combs were made at Brough, nails at Wirksworth, pins and needles at Hathersage. Blue John jewellery was being exported as far as China and America, while the beautiful inlay work of Ashford Marble attracted a wide and growing demand. Twentyfour principal annual fairs were held around the Peak as tourism grew apace. In 1832, a young royal princess came to stay at Chatsworth. The years of her long reign as Queen Victoria will provide the next and final chapter of this series. Julie Bunting

TANSLEY GIFTED COMMUNITY FACILITY FOR JUST £1

S S A

LE

T FR ART DE IDAY S ON CE 11T MB H ER

The ownership of Tansley Community Hall is to be transferred to the local parish council for just £1. The 128-year-old building in the village’s Church Street has been owned by Derbyshire Dales District Council and its predecessor authority Matlock Urban District Council for more than 90 years. Despite being valued at

around £150,000, the building, originally a Liberal Club, will be given to Tansley Parish Council after the District Council’s Governance & Resources Committee accepted on Thursday a business plan – prepared with the help of Rural Action Derbyshire – for a group of villagers to operate the hall on the Parish Council’s behalf “to

its full potential” for community use. Used down the years as a youth club and for recreational activities including billiards and snooker, the hall is currently operated by a village management committee and booked on a regular basis by the Brownies, a mother and toddler group, a sewing group, for exercise and yoga classes and as a rehearsal space by two local theatre groups. The Parish Council hold their monthly council meetings in the hall and had previously contested the building’s ownership because a previous incarnation of the council had taken over the running of the hall in 1906 for use as public offices until the council’s abolition in 1924.

It’s the end of a longrunning negotiation between the district and parish councils. Back in 2012 the district, which has always leased the hall to village groups at a peppercorn rent, offered the parish a 25-year lease at just £1 a year, but the parish refused to sign until a number of condition surveys were undertaken at the district’s cost. Asbestos, energy, building and roof surveys have all been carried out subsequently, with no significant issues being identified. Thursday’s meeting heard that the new business plan opened the door for the District Council to hand over the freehold of the building in its current good condition.

COBWEB PUTS WINDMILL TO SLEEP FOR WINTER

Heage Windmill’s season came to a close on Sat 31st October when a good group of friends and visitors carefully constructed what has now become something of a tradition at the windmill – they made a huge spider’s

web, under the careful instruction of our ‘web master’ for the day, Lynn Allen and her assistant, Jack Evans. Using ‘knicker elastic’ they slowly wove the cobweb and then placed it safely by the mill. The mill is now closed for

the season and will reopen on Good Friday, next year. In the meantime, as first stage to the repair of the wet rot, the six sails will be removed in the next couple of weeks. They will be refurbished by volunteers and work by a millwright should

commence shortly afterwards, aiming to have the 200-year-old machine back in full working order for the re-opening next year. Funding is still needed for this work and any donations can be made via our website www.heagewinmill.org.uk.

MATLOCK AND DISTRICT HARD OF HEARING CLUB Andy Fearn was the speaker at the November meeting of The Matlock and District Hard of Hearing Club. With the help of slides Andy took the members on a tour of the North York Moors. We visited Whitby and saw pictures of The Abbey, the harbour, the Smoked Kipper Shop, the replica of Captain

Cook’s ship The Endeavour and many more. Andy told members that there are 42 Fish and Chip Shops in and around Whitby, 199 steps up to The Abbey and, that next year The Flying Scotsman is to run from Whitby to Pickering. Our journey took us across the North York Moors and on to

Goathland, where the television series “Heartbeat” was filmed. We saw The Aidensfield Arms, Mr Scripps Garage and views of the area. We ended our tour with a trip to Scarborough with views of the beach on a nice sunny day, very different to the foggy day we had left outside The Imperial

Rooms. Following Andy’s talk, refreshments were served by members of the Committee. Details of the Christmas lunch at The Knockerdown Inn at Carsington were handed to members. This takes place on the 7th December, for details please ring either Sheila on 01629 732715, or Jill on 01629 584942.

On the 27th October 2015, the Bakewell and District Probus Club held its Annual General Meeting at which the chairmanship was handed over to Alan Grant who then introduced the speaker, club member John Gibson. An anaesthetist during his professional life, John gave an informative and entertaining talk about the history and development of the use of anaesthetics in medicine. He explained that in medieval times the methods by which patients requiring surgery were rendered unconscious were crude in the extreme and included the use of herbal potions, alcohol and even knock-out blows to the head. However, in the 18th Century a more scientific approach began to evolve. Further advances in the following century saw

the introduction of substances such as ether and chloroform. These were used for surgery and also, when administered during childbirth, greatly reduced the amount of pain suffered by the mother. Today’s anaesthetics are vastly more developed such that they fulfil three main functions during surgery. These are: to provide pain relief, to act as a musclerelaxant and to ensure unconsciousness. John concluded his talk by describing the lengthy and intensive process whereby anaesthetists receive their training. Further details of the club and its activities can be found on its website at www.bakewellprobus.org and from the Hon. Secretary Ron Marshall on 01433 639177.

LADY MANNERS SCHOOL CLAIM WELSH MALE VOICE CHOIR RETURNS TO TWO NATIONAL EQUESTRIAN TITLES HATHERSAGE FOR CHARITY CONCERT

Mountain Ash RFC Singers return to Hathersage for the third time where they have developed somewhat of a cult following. The 22 strong choir were formed 50 years ago and have been performing extensively throughout Wales and beyond ever since. Although smaller than traditional male voice choirs like Cor Meibion and Treorchy, they produce a wonderfully intimate and emotional night of unaccompanied traditional Welsh songs such as Calon Lan, Cwm Rhondda and the hauntingly beautiful Myfwany, as well as many other choral and West End favourites. Their patron is Michael Ball and they have accompanied him on a number of his recordings. They are led by choirmaster David Lewis who as well as

Bottom picture: Barney Newsome, Lauren Maycock, Molly Fletcher and Jess Sutton: 80cm Arena Eventing National Champions. Photographs supplied courtesy of Hoof Prints Ltd Talented horse riders from Lady Manners School have beaten stiff competition to become UK champions in a national equestrian competition. The National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) attracts hundreds of riders, representing schools from the length and breadth of the country, to events throughout the year. The competitors take part in show jumping, arena eventing and dressage events. These events culminate in the National Championships which were held in October at Addington Manor near Buckingham. The Championships were

attended by over 500 riders. Lady Manners School riders have trained hard during the course of the year, attending six qualifying events. This resulted in 13 riders from nine teams from the school qualifying for the National Championships. The three day event showcased a very high standard of riding. At the end of the competition Lady Manners School emerged as National Champions in not one, but two categories. Lydia Balls, Molly Fletcher, Lauren Maycock and Jess Sutton convincingly beat more than 40 teams to claim the title of 80cm Show Jumping

National Champions. Molly Fletcher, Lauren Maycock, Barney Newsome and Jess Sutton clinched a further top spot in a similarly hard-fought contest to become 80cm Arena Eventing National Champions. Sarah Green, the Lady Manners School Equestrian Team Manager, said: “This has been an amazing opportunity for our riders to experience competition at this level – for some of them, for the first time. We are fortunate to have very talented riders, fantastic ponies and parents who are willing to support us all the way. I am so proud of all of the whole team.”

directing provides an understated sense of wry Welsh humour that perfectly complements the evening. For this performance we are pleased to announce the choir are to be supported by the IZZY BURNS QUARTET. Izzy is a local girl who now lives and works in Northumberland. Hathersage folk have been listening to Izzy sing and perform since she was 10 years old. She has the most beautiful voice and we feel it is only a matter of time before her talent is acknowledged nationally. The Izzy Burns Quartet is now established as part of the North East’s burgeoning Americana scene. The band compromises Izzy (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Tom Kimber (mandolin), Niles Krieger (fiddle/mandolin) and Bevan Morris (Bass). Whether you

enjoy traditional ballads and fiddle tunes, Appalachian old time, bluegrass or contemporary alt country you will enjoy the Izzy Burns Quartet. The event is a charity performance where proceeds are going to Medicins Sans Frontieres MSF, the leading medical and humanitarian aid organisation. They were recently again in the news as

the MSF hospital in Afghanistan was bombed by coalition forces with many MSF staff being bombed. Also a proportion of the proceeds will go to a local charity. This is a unique event in that very few true Welsh choirs visit Derbyshire. The atmosphere is very special and tickets often sell like Glastonbury. A superb bar is

VISIT THE EXPERTS AT SELECTA TYRE LTD TO GET THE BEST ADVICE AND THE BEST PRICE With the fantastic finale to the 2015 Rugby World Cup a fading memory, Valley returned to league action as they welcomed fellow strugglers Marple to Castleton. In wet and blustery conditions it was Marple who were soon on the front foot, scoring directly under the posts only to see the conversion attempt hit the bar, restricting their lead to 5-0. However, with the referee ignoring a clear forward pass and Valley slipping off tackles, two further tries were soon added to extend the lead to 19-0. With the weather conditions worsening, Valley fought their way back into the game when a Ben Somerton charge opened holes in the visitors’ defence and Tom Anderson crashed

over, but the fightback was shortlived as a handling error allowed Marple to cross for another try and a 24-5 lead. This error seemed to galvanise Valley though and, after a superb effort by Dom Hunter, a Thomas Elliott break saw Anderson cross for his second try. Unfortunately, on a day when flippers were appropriate footwear, Somerton looked like he was kicking in them as he missed the conversion, leaving the interval score 10-24. Now playing down the slope, Valley were confident they could overcome this two score lead and their confidence appeared well placed when Somerton crashed over for his obligatory try and, despite some increasingly erratic refereeing, the lead was cut

further when Mark Innes finished a flowing move to cut the lead to 20-24. Valley were now buoyant, but a series of handling errors in worsening conditions prevented any further scores as Marple adapted better to the mudbath, driving through the forwards before scoring the clinching try out wide to shatter Valley’s hopes of a comeback victory. Tries: Anderson (2), Somerton, Innes. Man of the match: Dom Hunter, great workrate, highlighted by a huge tackle chasing a kickoff. Mandy of the match: Whilst Andy Woodall back chatting his elders ( yes, there really are people older than Woody) is worthy of a mention, Ben Somerton’s kicking display earned him the award.

ALCOHOL AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT It’s now approaching the time of year when people may consume more alcohol than usual due to Christmas celebrations. Did you know a standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a small bar of chocolate, and a pint of lager has about the same calorie count as a packet of crisps? The average wine drinker in England takes in around 2,000 calories from alcohol every month. Drinking five pints of lager a week adds up to 44,200 calories over a year, equivalent to eating 221 doughnuts. Many drinkers add to their calorie count by having fatty snacks such as crisps, nuts or pork scratchings, to accompany their tipple. A heavy drinking session is often followed by an unhealthy breakfast to help cope with a hangover, which again helps to pile on the pounds. Going for a fry-up instead of your usual bowl of cereal/toast can add an extra 450 calories to the calorie count from the night before. Regularly drinking more than the NHS recommends can have a noticeable impact on waistlines as well as causing less obvious but more serious health problems. Many women don’t realise that two large glasses of white wine not only puts them over the recommended daily limit for regular alcohol consumption, but also provides them with nearly 20% of their recommended daily calorie intake, at approximately 370 calories in total. Most people would baulk at consuming a full glass of single cream, but wouldn’t think twice about the calorie content of a couple of pints. However, the calorie content is similar and over time, excess alcohol intake can easily contribute to gaining weight.

Tips to avoid weight gain when drinking •Stick to your daily recommended units – men should not regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day; women should not regularly drink more than 2-3 units a day. As an indication, a pint of lager (ABV 5.2%) and a 250ml glass of wine (ABV 12%) both contain 3 units of alcohol. •Alternate an alcoholic

not tempted to go for the less healthy options. •Pace yourself by taking small sips. •Try to have at least 2 alcohol free days per week. •Avoid ‘binge drinking’ – some people are under the misapprehension that they can ‘save up’ their units to splurge at the weekend. •If you’re drinking white wine, why not add a splash of soda water to help the same number of units last longer?

•Don’t drink on an empty stomach. If you do reach for snacks while drinking, opt for a healthier option – e.g. a sandwich instead of crisps / chips / kebabs. •Drinking in rounds can mean you end up drinking more than you intended. Opt out and drink at your own pace. •Try cutting down with a friend, as you’ll be more likely to stick to it with moral support.

Book Review BUXTON, BURBAGE, CHELMORTON, EARL STERNDALE, FAIRFIELD, HARPUR HILL, PEAK DALE, KING STERNDALE, TADDINGTON AND WORMHILL REMEMBERED 1920s-1950s

This latest in-depth publication from Keith Taylor provides an evocative portrait spanning five decades of life in Buxton and the neighbouring villages in the period 1925 to 1960, with special emphasis placed on local events during the Second World War. The stories of the lives and deaths of all the servicemen who lost their lives receive pride of place. Life on the Home Front is covered in detail, including the activities of the local Home Guard platoons, activities at the underground bomb store at RAF Harpur Hill and the Doveholes fuel dump, the POW camp in the area, evacuees, experiences of the black-out, raising funds for the war effort, the celebrations on VE and VJ Days, the bitter peacetime winter of 1947 and peacetime celebrations, especially during the Coronation year of 1953. Many of the 780 photographs provide a fascinating insight into life in the High Peak during the period 1925 – 1960. The author will be signing copies of this new book at the Library on Kents Bank Road, Buxton between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 21st November 2015. You are most welcome to call in at any time during the day.

CALVER FILM 10TH DECEMBER – THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL A return of the cast of the first Exotic Marigold Hotel (including Dames Judy Dench and Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy) who are joined by Richard Gere. The ambition of the young hotel owner Sonny makes more demands on his time. His marriage to childhood sweetheart Sunaina is imminent and an overbooking causes complications. Charity of the month: Artability. There will be Christmas refreshments served at this film. For information regarding Calver Film call Denise Hall 01433 630760 Membership costs £20 and Guests £5. Members are allowed to bring 2 guests each. Bar and Parking available.

TANSLEY FILM PRESENTS “THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL” TUESDAY 1ST DECEMBER

seeking to replicate the mood of its predecessor, “The Second Exotic Marigold Hotel” gives the punters exactly what they want.” The story of British retirees at a chaotic Indian hotel has a formidable cast. Peter Bradshaw says, “The thespian firepower of Smith, Dench, Nighy, Imrie and now Richard Gere is redoubtable.” Judi Dench and Bill Nighy are arguably, however, the central figures this time. Dev Patel’s Sonny is looking to expand his hotel to attract the US retirement market. A potential investor wishes to send an inspector before making a decision. The coincidental arrival of Richard Gere as the “silver fox American” creates much confusion. Screening of the film starts at 7.30pm in Tansley Village Hall. Each film is always shown on the first Tuesday of every month. Refreshments are available from 7pm. No membership is required. The cinema has comfortable, upholstered seats, high definition projection on a 3.5 metre

To remember and honour those who lost their lives in war but also to hope and pray that the human race can through adversity learn to live together in peace and harmony.

When the name ‘Sheffield’ is mentioned most of us probably think of industry, particularly steel. Historian David Templeman, of Sheffield Manor Lodge, came to Bakewell and District Historical Society to take us back to days well before the Industrial Revolution when Sheffield was a small rural community. The market charter had been granted back in 1296 and traders with their pack horses were guided in over the surrounding moors. There were only two stone buildings in the town; all the rest were humble wooden hovels and David focused his talk on the lives of the ordinary people who lived in those houses. Many made their living from farming, mining, working for the Lord of the Manor and, interestingly, making goods from metal. About 1380 a Sheffield knife was mentioned in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. David is always welcome at the Historical Society, as evidenced by the large number of members who turned out to hear him. We were not disappointed as his extensive knowledge and enthusiasm made his talk lively and interesting. Our next meeting also promises to be entertaining but in a completely different way. Peter Day is coming to talk about music in the First World War. He will be bringing memoirs of the troops’ entertainers and original recordings from the period. We meet at the Friends’ Meeting House on Wednesday 25th November at 7.30. Visitors are welcome. Meanwhile the last event of the 2015 season at the Old House Museum was an atmospheric storytelling evening when a Victorian gentleman read ghost stories by candlelight in the parlour. Half-way through we relaxed with a hot supper, then returned to hear more spooky tales. Although the museum closes on 5th November we shall re-open for a Victorian Christmas weekend on 12th and 13th December. The sights, sounds and smells of Christmas will be everywhere, with masses of greenery, ribbons and candles, live Christmas music and Christmas stories, mulled wine and mincepies. On the Saturday the Community Bus will be running a shuttle service between the Co-op and the museum. For more information visit our website www.oldhousemuseum.org .uk or call 01629 813642.

It has been an amazing year at Hattersley wines with lots to celebrate, beginning with our International Wine Challenge Award for Regional Merchant of the Year. John and Diane were thrilled to receive the award from Master of Wine Tim Atkin at the awards dinner in London in June. It is recognition for many years’ h a r d work by all the t e a m a n d testament to our team’s drive and passion for all things wine related which we love to share with you, our customers. We have also welcomed new team member Sean Driscoll on board. Sean’s recent background was in the fitness industry (useful for all those Christmas deliveries!) but he has plenty of hospitality experience and a ‘thirst’ for learning all about our range of wines to help you make

your choices for the festive season. And this year we have some amazing offers to tempt you with. We have some fantastic fizzes, some with up to £5 off a bottle including Champagne Lallier Vintage 2008. For less formal fizz try the new Selvaggio Prosecco Extra Dry to get the party started. All the classics a r e featured such as t h e multia w a r d winning Château LaroseTrintaudon Haut Médoc 2 0 1 0 (Magnums), William F è v r e Chablis with £3 off a bottle and inspired by Sarah and Judd’s summer trip to the southern Rhône, Rasteau ‘Les Banquettes’ – winner of 4 awards, perfect for hearty winter warming food and again on offer saving £3 a bottle at £9.95. Back in January, John and Diane had a wonderful tour of South Africa,

experiencing the wonders of bio-dynamic Waterkloof first hand. Their Circle of Life wines are perfect examples of how hard work and careful practices in the vineyard can produce outstanding results – these are truly special wines. We have all the necessary Ports, sherry and dessert wines you need, many at the same offer prices as the last 3 years. A great range from Chase Distillery is also

available, including their vodkas (voted World’s Best Vodka), which make perfect presents, along with many other gift boxed items and bottles of all sizes! We will have wines open to taste each weekend leading up to Christmas so call in the shop, ask our advice and pick up your copy of our Festive Offers book.

architecture, the great fires will be roaring – conjuring up a truly atmospheric setting. “Expect a visual feast when you step in to our home this December”, says Lady Edward Manners, who lives at Haddon with Lord Edward Manners and their young family. “We will be showing off all that The Twelve Days has to offer, with the rooms, courtyards, nooks and crannies of this lovely and historic site having reference to this wonderful carol.”

There will be storytelling each day of the Christmas opening, and candlelit tours take place on 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 14th and 15th December from 6pm; a rare opportunity to see the hall lit by beautiful candlelight. Other highlights include: live music, decoration workshops, carol singing, festive food and a delightful gift shop.

quirky, but all will be unique. This Festival has become a traditional and extremely popular beginning to the Christmas season in Bakewell. The Festival will begin with a short opening service at 7pm on Thursday, 10th December, which is followed by light refreshments. At 7.30pm on Friday, 11th December the very popular Sheffield Folk Chorale will perform. At 7pm on Tuesday, 15th December it will be your opportunity to join in the singing of choruses from the Messiah and Christmas carols. On Thursday 17th December the church will be open until 8.30pm to enable you to enjoy the spectacle of the trees in the darkness and to partake of a glass of mulled wine or fruit juice. The Festival will close with a community carol service at 6pm on Sunday, 20 December. Between 11am and 3pm on Saturday, 12 December the Community bus, on

behalf of the Tree Festival and the Old House Museum, will run a shuttle service from the entrance to the Co op (opposite Boots) to the church and the Museum. Throughout the event the church’s Open Door café will be open from 11am to 4pm serving coffee, tea, light lunches and afternoon teas. Sue and Jeff’s extremely popular ‘Festival Special’ of a turkey and cranberry sandwich, a mince pie and a drink will again be available.

Starting the countdown to Christmas, local jewellers C W Sellors put over 3,000 guests in the festive mood as they once again opened the doors to their Christmas Wishes Fine Jewellery and Watch Showcase in the grounds of Chatsworth House. In what has become the largest event of its kind in the UK, putting Derbyshire firmly on the map as the destination for fine jewellery and luxury watches, highlights of the weekend event included the official launch of the new Faberge collection, special pieces from the UK’s leading jewellery designer Shaun Leane, a selection of over fifty luxury watch brands and C W Sellors’ own award-winning jewellery – including their exclusive Christmas collection. Speaking on the success of this year’s event, Chris Sellors commented, “Our Christmas Wishes Showcase just keeps getting bigger and better each year and we hopefully once again gave our customers a weekend to remember.” Having brought together extended collections and brands from their 15 jewellery boutiques and online stores, Showcase co-

for one sparkling weekend our Christmas Wishes Showcase becomes the UK’s largest jewellery boutique.” In addition to some essential shopping and amongst a fabulous Wind in the Willows setting, customers enjoyed a full talk schedule, jewellery cleaning and joined in with some fun competitions. In

ordinator, Rebecca Carter, added: “There is simply no other event which provides the opportunity to see such an extensive collection of fine jewellery and watches under one roof, and what better setting could you ask for than Chatsworth House. From Mikimoto pearls, tanzanite & diamonds, the launch of new jewellery collections and the many watch brands we have on display,

doing so they also helped raise a great deal of money for a range of good causes, including Help for Heroes, NSPCC, Air Ambulance and the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. For those who joined in with the facebook photo competitions, all pictures are now online on C W Sellors facebook page, find them at facebook.com/cwsellorsfine jewellery.

BAGSHAWS RESIDENTIAL WELCOMES LAUNCH OF HELP-TO-BUY ISA The Help to Buy ISA launches on 1st December 2015 and local estate agency Bagshaws Residential in Bakewell is advising aspiring home owners to take advantage of this Government backed scheme and start their journey towards owning their first home. The new ISAs, which will be available through selected banks and building societies, will see first time buyer’s savings given a 25% boost from the government, and are designed to help prospective homeowners towards their first step onto the property ladder. The Help to Buy ISA will see individuals given a £50 bonus for every £200 that they can save each month, up to £3,000 and will be available to take out for up to four years for homes worth up to £450,000 in London and £250,000 outside the capital. “This is a great incentive to get people saving for a

deposit for their first home and in particular those aspiring home owners who may be struggling to raise a large deposit,” says Liz Agar, Branch Manager at Bagshaws Residential. “The Help to Buy ISA sits nicely alongside the other Help to Buy schemes which enables purchasers to buy a home with only a 5% deposit. “Couples can also benefit individually, doubling the amount of savings to potentially receive £6,000 in Government contributions,” adds Liz. “We would highly recommend that aspiring home owners take advantage of this fantastic initiative and predict that it will bring a welcome boost to the UK housing market.” For more information on local property visit your local Bagshaws Residential branch at Bakewell or call 01629 814774.

The historic carriages have been carefully restored and maintained to give an extremely traditional feel to touring the Whitworth Park. In addition to being accompanied by Santa Claus on the ride, even the horses have their own festive bells and ear-muffs to enter into the spirit of Christmas!

The extensive Carriage Museum displaying Santa’s sleigh filled with presents and the associated stables, on the A6 in Darley Dale, is open daily for visiting from 10am-2pm except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Running in parallel with the carriage rides, the Whitworth Centre is also holding its annual Christmas Fair – just the place to look for those final Christmas presents!

Victorian Matlock’s Christmas Weekend And Market On Hall Leys Park, 4th-6th December

Now ranking as one of the top four ‘East Midlands biggest and most popular Christmas events’ Victorian

Matlock’s Christmas weekend is only a matter of weeks away. As usual you can expect

over 200 stalls, some in heated marquees. There will be many new stalls, but plenty of old favourites,

which will include traditional craft, food, Christmas gifts, homeware and festive refreshments. Demand over the last few years for our specialist food marquee means this year we welcome producers from far and wide to bring you the best of festive food, drink and gift items. All through Saturday and Sunday there will be Circus workshops available free for

all the family, where you can take centre stage in the large inflatable Circus Ring – we can’t wait to have another go on the unicycle! The entertainment includes the Christmas Lights switch-on by Smooth FM stars Gareth Evans and Emma Cauldwell on Saturday 6th December at 4.45pm. Before turning on the lights they will take part in the traditional procession through Matlock, with Father Christmas in a coach and horses from Red House Stables, Darley Dale. The parade will also include the Midshipmen Carnival Show Band, and a reprise of some of the features from the Matlock Bath llluminations. Geoff Stevens, the Chairman of the organising Committee, a partnership between Matlock Town Council and the Matlock Business Group said, “Every year is special for all those connected with the Victorian

Matlock Christmas Weekend and Markets. The event has now grown into an event with around two hundred stalls and attractions, and is always popular with residents and visitors alike. The event will finish with a bang as usual on Sunday 6th December at 5.15pm with a Christmas Firework Spectacular�.

The Victorian Weekend in Matlock is renowned as a family focused event packed with free entertainment, with something sure to appeal to everyone. This year is no different as we invite you to share in treasures old and new over the weekend along with all the colour and atmosphere from the stalls and rides, bands, groups and

local singers who will provide music through the weekend along with a selection of popular street entertainers including a Juggler, Fire Eater and a Clown. We are pleased to be welcoming, once again, James McKay who will be in attendance on all three days with his display of Owls. It goes without saying that there are opportunities to meet Father Christmas in his Grotto throughout Saturday and Sunday to make sure all those special requests are made in good time for the big day. We are also delighted to be welcoming royalty this year with the chance for visitors to have an audience with Queen Victoria on the Bandstand. Complementing all of this you will find a variety of fairground rides and over 150 stalls available in 3 heated marquees. This adds up to a great day out for families and excellent opportunities for stallholders who come back year after year and tell us this is one of their favourite events in the calendar.

Mr. Keith Bamford was the visiting speaker at the meeting held on Tuesday 10 November 2015. The talk was entitled “The Rocky Mountains�. These mountains formed the central theme of the presentation but the main emphasis was on that part of the holiday spent on the train. Landing at Calgary he and his wife then joined the train at Banff and enjoyed two days travelling through the Rockies, via Lake Louise and Kamloops to arrive finally at Vancouver. A number of slides were shown to illustrate the places visited. The journey took in many of the attractions which are associated in most people’s mind with this part of Canada. Magnificent mountain scenery, rivers, glaciers and lakes and the special flora and fauna of the region. All this was enhanced by the special viewing facilities built into the train and road excursions to other interesting sites. The journey ended in Vancouver, an impressive modern city offering many places of interest to a visitor. A vote of thanks was proposed by Chairman Frank Beesley. The Club meets at the Edgefold Club on Tuesday mornings at 10am for coffee and biscuits followed by the speaker of the day. Visitors are welcome for a “taster visit� to any of the meetings.

MATLOCK’S VAPEHQ PROVIDES A TASTY ALTERNATIVE TO SMOKING

The VapeHQ difference is that it is a professional business which is part of a growing UK wide network of VapeHQ stores. The staff are Vape Advisors rather than sales people. If you are new to vaping, or know little about it, Maria and Scott can talk you through the options with no pressure to buy. You can even try devices and liquids for free. All this to make sure that your switch to vape is effortless. “We just love helping people to discover vaping” says Scott, “and after the purchase, if anyone has a problem or a question, we are always available to help or advise”. VapeHQ is open til 6pm 6 days per week on Firs Parade in Matlock. You can get there by tapping DE4 3AS into your SatNav.

An alternative to smoking which doesn’t rely on willpower or abstinence

America is for those vapers that like to blow thick clouds of vapour. We call them ‘Cloudchasers’. Personally, I love ‘Cinnamon Cookies’ from the UK manufactured House Of Liquid range that has organic ingredients.” The flavours range from popular cigarette brands to a wide selection of fruits, drinks and even Bubble Gum. There are currently around 50 flavours with more to come. So, why buy from VapeHQ? “We are all about safety and traceability.” Insists Scott, “we only sell guaranteed devices and liquids that we trust. Our E-Liquids are UK tested with fully traceable suppliers as food does. After all, you need to know what you are putting into your body and that it has no harmful ingredients.”

quitting the smoking habit, many find it easier to swap to vape then stop. And vaping costs a lot less than smoking. 20 cigarettes a day can cost up to £240 a month. The equivalent in vaping can cost only £30 a month. And with starter kits available from around £20, VapeHQ can get you vaping and saving straight away. As an additional bonus, the Liquid Loyalty scheme puts 10% of all purchases in an account that can be redeemed on free eliquid. “Experienced ‘vapers’ are also catered for at VapeHQ” explains Maria, “Vapers often modify their device and love discovering new flavours. As new flavours are introduced there’s a rush to get them first. For example, the new range of Element liquids from

Millions of smokers have switched to vaping to help them to quit and save money too. Maria Theodoulou, a lifelong Matlock resident, and soon to be husband Scott Staite have opened VapeHQ on Firs Parade to bring the many flavours of vape to Matlock. But what is ‘Vape’? Vaping is an alternative to smoking that uses flavoured vapour to replace the usual cigarette chemicals. The Vape device is filled with a flavoured liquid which is vaporised to give the same sensation as smoking a traditional cigarette. You can start with a liquid which contains nicotine and then work your way to a liquid which has none. Vaping is an alternative to smoking which doesn’t rely on will power or abstinence.

LICENSED FOR WINE AND BOTTLED BEERS

In this 70th year since the end of WW2, we know that many readers have memories of local life on the home front. Some can tell for example how lead from Peak District mines went into making bullets, just as in the First World War. Others will recall that the great Smedley’s hydro at Matlock, now County Hall, became a centre for military intelligence courses. Oldham House Hydro on nearby Bank Road was taken over as an RAF hospital, while Rockside Hydro became a hospital for airmen suffering from combat fatigue. From 1940 the nation had to adapt to food rationing, everyone allocated a weekly allowance of such basic foods as butter and sugar. Rationing was gradually extended to include clothing, furniture, petrol

and sweets. The recycling of waste paper was of national importance, boosted by the gathering of nettles to be dried and used in paper production. The Dig for Victory campaign saw many families growing fruit and vegetables on a rented allotment which often supported a few hens, rabbits for the table and even the occasional pig – of which it was said that everything could be eaten ‘except the squeal’. Dad’s Army A London firm decamped to Paton & Baldwins wool factory on Matlock Bank, where local employees were re-trained to produce intricate machine parts. Female workers at a knitting factory in Bakewell were sent to work in Sheffield, where instead of knitting cardigans they had to pack gunpowder into shells – unpleasant work that gave some women ‘powder rash’ and turned others yellow. Countless British women left indoor jobs to work outside in all weathers as Land Girls, taking over what had formerly been men’s work, from potato picking to ploughing and haymaking. One fair number of men who couldn’t join the Forces, perhaps through illness or age or in a reserved occupation, joined

the Home Guard – ‘Dad’s Army’. They were taught to defend essential services and, should the need arise, to hinder the enemy until regular troops arrived. Behind the chimney pot A mounted platoon of the Home Guard regularly patrolled the hills around Matlock after dark but one particular local venture remained Top Secret: with the fear of enemy troops reaching England, a specially-trained civilian unit named Ground Station Zero (GSZ) was established in Tailor Toplis’s shop at 135 Smedley Street, Matlock. The aerial of its wireless station was hidden on the chimney pot, while a pistol and ammunition were kept beside the wireless at all times to deal with unwelcome visitors. Today there is a blue plaque on the property, pictured above. Should the enemy get this far inland, the GSZ unit

was under orders to block their movement by blowing up the Derwent river bridge near Crown Square. A barrier of steel ‘dragon’s teeth’ was installed across nearby Dale Road and mortar bombs were concealed amongst scrapiron behind Matlock Town Hall. Explosives and ammunition were hidden in various local quarries, also inside Masson Cavern at Matlock Bath. In the event, Matlock was left in peace until one Sunday morning in March 1945 when a solitary German bomber flew along the Derwent Valley and opened fire over the town. The only damage was a few chipped buildings. By now, though, the war was nearing its end. Regions which had fared far worse than the Peaks and Dales would be left to pick up the pieces.

Derwent Valley Flower Club How first impressions can deceive! Beverley Artis is quietly spoken and gently unassuming but once started, is a flower lover’s dream! Our members and visitors were stilled in rapt attention as Beverley wove beautiful designs, gave endless tips and advice, demonstrated new techniques with floral sundries and even provided a background of entertaining chatter. Beverley is a definite high flyer within NAFAS’s demonstrators. Basically a treat! If you are wishing you hadn’t missed this delight, don’t despair as on 3rd December at Cliffe College at 7.45, we have a very special Open Meeting that will suit you! Carl Wilde cometh! Carl is a renowned international designer with a flamboyant, larger than life persona that exudes an infectious sense of humour. As I have seen him on numerous occasions and he has visited our club a few times before, I can genuinely assert that, if you join us, you will not be disappointed in either the floral designs or the entertainment value! For tickets (£10 which includes coffee and cake) or information, please phone Christine on 01433 630161.

Pennine aving THE MONSAL TRAIL PC ompany A WALKING GUIDE

This new book of walks from local publisher Bradwell Books will guide you along the length of the Monsal trail and around many of the surrounding footpaths and bridleways. Helping you to explore the area and introducing you to some of the Peak District’s most beautiful, tranquil and historic limestone dales. The Monsal Trail follows an 8.5-mile section of the former Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway, opened by the Midland Railway in 1863 to link Manchester with London. The line was closed in 1968 and remained derelict for a number of years before being taken over by the Peak District National Park and reopened as a walking route. The recent renovation of the Chee Tor tunnels means that the entire stretch of track is now accessible on foot, bicycle, wheelchair and pushchair. Perhaps the most spectacular stretch of the trail is where it crosses the Headstone Viaduct at Monsal Head, but there are equally impressive views at places like Water-cum-Jolly Dale, and the four lit tunnels which have an atmosphere all their own. The trail is easily accessible from Bakewell Station at the south end and Wyedale at the north, as well as from various points along its length. It passes through places such as Hassop, Great Longstone, Monsal Dale, Cressbrook and Litton, and runs close by Haddon Hall and Chatsworth, two of the most beautiful and historic

Referring to The Great Ridge in my last walk and seeing from afar that impressive line-up of Tors and high summits, I was fuelled with a desire to return to the area and fired up for a proper hike that would test my stamina and give my leg muscles a work-out. And so it was that I ventured back to the Dark Peak, this time parking at Castleton before heading off on a footpath across fields with Mam Tor towering before me as a beacon to aim for. Although a bit of a grey and windy day, there were to be occasional spells of good light as the sun broke through with ‘God’s fingers’ pointing out and illuminating features in this wonderful amphitheatre of hills. At one point a burst of sunshine was a spotlight on the face of Mam Tor showing the unstable bands of grit, sandstone and shale, whilst another beam picked out Back Tor with its lone pine tree on the summit, once described to me by a child on a guided walk who said it looked like an ‘umbrella tree’. After heavy rain the day before, many of the paths were now slippery and the ground in parts soddened with surface water. A school trip of little figures in high visibility waistcoats were in slow procession as they made their way up the steep path to Treak Cliff Cavern for an underground experience. After passing through the remains of Odin Mine with its crushing circle, capped shaft and numerous cave like adits, my route was to head up the earthquake movie road, walking around distorted patches of cracked tarmac that appeared like twisted black toffee. A handful of cars were parked at the Blue John Mine where another school trip was about to descend deep into the hillside to learn about the phenomena of this semi-precious mineral. Around the corner of the hairpin bend on the Chapelen-le-Frith Road I could see an abandoned car that had probably been going too fast and ended up in the field, a wake-up call that

Beautiful Hand Carved Stone Fire Surrounds On the summit are said to be the remains of burial mounds. Another incentive to reach the top of the path was to look for a handful of little metal sculptures set into the pavers. These are decorated with features such as an Iron Age timber hut and a bracelet. Finally arriving at the highest point I cuddled the trig point for support from a strong breeze that was whipping over the moors and trying to blow me off my feet. Sometimes, not being lightweight has its advantages! From this high vantage point I turned full circle to observe far reaching views making me feel on top of the world both mentally and physically.

part enjoying the privilege of being alone. After skirting the side of Back Tor where I kept well away from the cliff edge, I ventured on to Lose Hill, part of which is called Ward’s Piece and was given to the National Trust in 1945 by G H B Ward who is remembered for his part in the Mass Trespass and his fight to make private land accessible for ramblers. The summit of Lose Hill was particularly draughty so I lost little time before beginning a very slow and careful descent, picking my way gingerly down the long succession of little stone steps. Dotted with grazing sheep, the grassy flanks beyond were also speckled

The path up to Mam Nick was squidgy and sludgy before I reached a long succession of steps and pavers, laid to combat erosion. They are certainly effective and help anyone wanting to ascend to the summit. Mam Tor was the setting for a hill fort dating from the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age with the remains of a defensive ditch to be seen cut into its side.

The Vale of Edale looked very sombre down below as the sun was struggling to reach this hidden valley, whilst Kinder Scout and Bleaklow were as appealing to me on that particular day as going to the moon! The rollercoaster ridge walk stretched out ahead and I thoroughly enjoyed every step along its spine that followed. Being midweek and November, it was relatively quiet up there so I passed only a handful of fellow walkers, for the most

with some amazing fungi, probably thriving on the unusually warm and wet conditions of late. After negotiating a holloway deep in fallen leaves that had been whipped off trees by the wind and deposited here to mulch in nature’s very own compost heap, I eventually made my way along the Edale Road to Hope where I refuelled and recharged with a pot of tea at the welcoming Woodbine Cafe. To return to Castleton I

headed down past Hope Church, dedicated to St Peter. Dating back to the 13th century, its graveyard contains the remains of a Saxon cross shaft. After crossing the river I headed uphill to a gate and stile on the right and then followed a path across meadows beside Peakshole Water which was gushing forth on its short journey to unite with the Noe. It was calm and sheltered down in the bottom of the valley. Castleton looked picturesque, nestling into the hillside beneath the elevated ruins of Peveril Castle, said to be one of England’s earliest Norman fortresses. The Great Ridge n o w looked far away and very high up, with little antlike figures following in my footsteps, no doubt seeing the imprint of my vibram soles in occasional muddy patches. I had left my mark a n d conquered the peaks yet again. Now I could head for home, returning happy and content in the knowledge that after twenty-five years of compiling Peak Advertiser walks, there is life in the old girl yet!
