The Samuel Turner Memorial Drinking Fountain, Buxton. Erected in memory of Samuel Turner in 1879, the fountain was damaged in 1959 and put into storage. Fully restored, the memorial now stands proudly in the heart of the town.

PAST AGES OF THE PEAK Part 11 – Under Stuart Rule On a late spring day of 1603, Youlgrave church bells were repaired at the cost of a shilling and given a new fivepenny rope in order to proclaim the coronation of James 1, England’s first Stuart monarch. Less than three years later those same bells rang out in thanksgiving for his deliverance from the gunpowder plot, an event which was to herald a reign of intolerance and superstition. The ‘witch-ridden’ king himself wrote ‘Demonology’, a work that fuelled an era of hysterical witch-hunting; in 1608 two Bakewell women were burnt as witches on the farfetched evidence of an aggrieved lodger. The kingdom inherited by

Charles 1 in 1625 was rent by bitter religious and constitutional differences. Charles ruled without parliament from 1629 – 1640, raising finance by ingenious means. Derbyshire managed to submit just £60 of the £3,500 ship money demanded – a tax previously imposed only on coastal towns and only in wartime. Tideswell had been charged with maintaining and manning a 350-ton ship, down to munitions, victuals and wages. Moreover, the townsfolk were driven to protest against the numbers summoned for military service. In the main the Peak fell under Parliamentary control. Even the Royalist stronghold of Chatsworth – seat of the Devonshires – was taken for

a time by Sir John Gell of Hopton. In 1643 the Earl of Devonshire’s son, the Hon. Charles Cavendish, a Royalist colonel, was killed on the field of Gainsborough. His body was pickled in a barrel – a not uncommon practice for the gentry – to await reinterment in the family vault at Derby Church (now the Cathedral) at the time of the burial of his mother, the Countess Christian. She, in the intervening years, had founded the church of Peak Forest in memory of her son. One of the windows depicts the figure of Charles 1 beside an axe and beheading block, the church having been dedicated to King Charles King and Martyr following the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. During hostilities Hassop Hall had been garrisoned for the King by the staunchly Royalist Eyres, who witnessed fighting almost at its gates. Cavaliers and Roundheads also came face to face on Hartington moor, leaving behind lead bullets and the story of a Royalist leader, William de Rossington of Rowsley. Killed in the skirmish but wanted dead or alive, his body was buried by his sweetheart after nightfall in woodland near Cressbrook; two centuries later his remains

were discovered alongside armour and a sword. Christopher Fulwood of Middleton also fought for the King, mustering 1,000 Peakland men but in 1643 he was cornered behind a rock in Bradford Dale and mortally wounded by Gell’s Roundheads. The Civil War came to an end five years later with Cromwell’s success at Preston, following which 1,500 Scottish Royalist prisoners were marched to Chapel en le Frith and incarcerated in the church for 16 days; 44 died of neglect and many more perished after their release.

Elton and former Darley Dale wicketkeeper Jack Stone says it is a case of ‘so far – so good’ at the end of his first season as a Derbyshire Premier League cricketer. When he was approached by

Premier League Denby earlier this year, Stone made the difficult decision to leave Darley Dale to try his luck at the higher level. He had been at Darley for fourteen seasons since the age of

eleven and had greatly enjoyed his time there but if he was going to make the step up – it was now or never. Following an excellent start, Denby flirted with the top of the Premier

League in the first half of the season but their form tailed off in August and they finished mid-table. Stone achieved more stumpings than any other keeper in the Premier League and was ever present for his new club. Denby also reached the semi-finals of both the Premier Cup and the T20 knock-out competitions. In common with most other Premier League clubs, Denby have their fair share of players with first-class cricket experience. Greg Cork (son of Dominic) is a regular member of the Derbyshire one-day side. He opens the bowling for Denby with 19 years old Will Davies who made a highly promising Derbyshire debut against the Australians in July. Denby’s off-spinning all rounder, Peter Burgoyne, played two Championship games for Sussex this season, after several successful appearances for their second eleven. Away from Denby, Stone was flattered to be asked to keep wicket for a Premier League Select eleven who faced a full strength Derbyshire team in a warm up T20 game at Queens Park, Chesterfield in early July. Other than Stone, the League side comprised mainly the overseas professionals playing for the various Premier league clubs. These included former Australian Test bowler Michael Beer who featured in the 2011 Ashes down under and is currently with Swarkstone. Also appearing for the League side was Stone’s Denby team mate, Jury Snyman, a hard hitting batsman from Johannesburg. On the hottest evening of the year, Derbyshire batted first and ran up a total of 169 with Chesney Hughes and Wes Durston the main contributors. Stone was extremely disappointed when a confident appeal for a catch against Durston was turned down by the umpire but pouched a neat catch to send back Shiv Thakor in the next over. Opening for the League side, Jury Snyman set off with an array of glorious attacking shots. He showed the County bowlers very little respect as he rattled up 55 in no time. At the half way point it seemed that a big upset was on the cards but once Snyman had departed Derbyshire took control and eventually ran out victors by 30 runs. Still – all quite an experience for the Elton man who continues to turn out for his home village in midweek Longstone League games and Sunday friendlies.

Two faithful church wardens were feted at a ceremony on Sunday 27th September, thanking them for providing decades of service to their local church. Roland Corfield (on the left) 75, of Bakewell Road,



Darley Dale and Roy Witham, 82 of Elton Road, Winster, have together served St John The Baptist Church in Winster for 100 years, Roland for 42 and a half years and Roy for 57 and a half years. A celebration of their achievement took place at St John’s, on Sunday the 27th. Roland said, “Well 100 not out is no mean feat and we have both seen lots of changes over the years but I was brought up at church and I have always loved it, so I’ll do it until they kick me off, or I pop my clogs”. Roland became warden in 1973 at the age of 33 but Roy has been serving the parish since way back in 1958. Together, they look after the church itself and the fabric of the building but also manage the details of the

services including funerals and even some bell ringing as well. Roy said, “I have lived in Winster all my life and was always a churchgoer, right from when I was a child. They approached me when I was 25 because, I was a self employed builder and initially I said ‘no’ but they convinced me it was right for me. “It has been very time consuming but I have enjoyed it and Roland was born only a few doors away from me and we played together as children, so we have had a very good relationship”. Rector of St John’s, Reverend Stephen Monk, was full of praise for his two right hand men: “The church has changed so much in their time here and Roy and Roland have been faithful through all of that”.

Sue Lewis-Blake talked to Bakewell WI about “Looking at Abstract Art” at the meeting on 21st July. She explained that patterns have been used in art since ancient times but it wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that artists looked for new ways of representing reality. She illustrated and discussed various periods and styles up to the present day. As well as producing her own work Sue runs monthly art appreciation workshops at Stanton-in-thePeak. Further information about her art and experience is available on her website at h t t p : / / w w w. l e w i s At our September meeting local photographer Robert Falconer gave a slide show on The Magic of Mull. In 2005 Robert spent 4 months living and working on the Isle. At the same time he was also able to photograph the island at its best from tranquil lochs to golden beaches. Mull’s neighbours also feature, such as Ulva, Staffa, Treshnish Isle and Iona. Robert had many cards available and copies of his books “The Peak District A Winters Tale” and ‘Preserved Steam in Derbyshire’ For more information about his work and talks see http://www.robfalconerphot Our meetings are normally held at the Friends’ Meeting House, Chapel Row, Bakewell at 7.30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

DERWENT VALLEY JUNIOR FOOTBALL LEAGUE The Derwent Valley Junior Football League has got back into its stride very quickly in September with some already very exciting games and the prospect of many more to come. A referees’ course held over the summer has gained the league some new faces and we would very much like to wish them all well, they will need support and encouragement which we are sure they will get from our clubs. They have put a lot of time and effort to get this far so well done to them all. The League will be supporting the FA Respect Campaign ‘set your stall out’ week commencing 10 and 11th October, and we are sure all our clubs will be backing this initiative to raise standards within our game -

look out for photos of our respect handshakes. We would like to offer our thanks to Marshalls PLC of Grindleford who have sponsored recent courses and have offered ongoing support. The League is working in conjunction with Clubs and the Derbyshire County FA to arrange further training courses particularly another Level 1 Coaching Course. This will hopefully lead to more clubs attaining Chartered Standard Statues and enable us to move towards our goal of becoming a Chartered Standard League. We are always looking for financial support to help in the running of the league so if you may be interested in supporting us please get in touch at: U10’s & U8’s playing Mini Soccer will see some exciting changes this season with 2 trophy events planned at central venues the first of which will be in November.

However, more information is needed to find out how this cold-loving species is responding to our increasingly mild and wet winters with less snow. The Community Science project, run by Moors for the Future Partnership and funded by the Heritage Lottery, will rely on volunteers to recording their hare sightings. Sarah Proctor, Project Manager said: “Involving

local communities gives us the best chance of collecting large amounts of data about our only upland specialist mammal. The aim of the project is to provide a wide range of opportunities for people to collect valuable information about how our uplands are changing, whilst also inspiring people to take an interest in moorlands and look at them a bit closer�. Sarah added, “There are loads of ways to record your sightings of the snow hare, its coat colour and whether there is snow on the ground when you saw it - through our website, by picking up one of our postcards, or by using our new ‘MoorWILD’ smartphone app, which is free to download.� Snow hares – also called mountain hares – are a UK Priority species, and are well suited to living on cold and exposed hilltops. As the UK’s most south-easterly population, English snow

A major citizen science project will be launched in the Peak District and South Pennines this autumn to gather more information about the enigmatic snow hare, and how this species is being affected by a warming climate. This area is the only place in England where this animal – whose fur turns white in the winter for camouflage – is still found in any number.



hares are likely to be the first to feel the effects of our warming climate. Community Science started in 2013 initially focussing on moorland birds, butterflies and bees, but is now being expanded to include studies into mammals and the vital peatforming Sphagnum moss. The man behind this year’s hunt to find Britain’s national bird, David Lindo, has given his backing to the campaign and said: “As far as I am concerned, the only way to really get conservation messages out there is to encourage volunteers to participate in citizen science. Exactly what you guys will be doing. It is people like you that help to create the cornerstones of our increasing knowledge of the natural world.� To find out how more about the project and how you can get involved go to: uk/community-science

A symporium of melody, mirth and mandagic for your delectation and delight! Alf Bailey once again takes on the role of chairman as his extremely successful old time music hall show goes on the road again, coming to Youlgrave Village

selection of well loved songs of yesteryear, it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. ‘We’re delighted to be making our first visit to this part of Derbyshire, and this fund-raising show for the

This month our very own Jane Bownes will give a talk on Bradwell Ice Cream, the village business that has now become nationally (internationally, even, maybe?) well known. This should prove very interesting – particularly to our ever increasing new membership and to those who have recently moved into the village….and free tastings too! Last month Paul Bettison, Chaplain of Ashgate Hospice,

gave a moving talk on the Hospice which gives palliative care to those nearing the end of life’s pathway due to cancer. He stressed how important it is to listen to all, be it those who wish to talk to God everyday or those less religious, who maybe just want to talk about family, friends (and pets) and the life and loves they may have had. He also stressed how important the garden was and how it had been

designed (and continues to evolve) with wheelchair access in mind, providing a sensory experience for all. Our summer outing to Warwick Castle proved a great success, with many thanks to Phil for sorting the wayward tickets – “It was all right on the night…..(day!)” and, by the time you read this, we will have enjoyed our outing to Kew Gardens and Buckingham Palace, joined by some of our friends from outside Rebellion Knoll.

The flowers in the tubs on the main road are nearing the end of their display; we hope they have brought some pleasure. The garden at the entrance to Town Bottom Playing Fields is now maturing beautifully thanks to the weekly administrations of our members. We hope you all enjoyed our stall on Gala Day. Thank you for supporting us despite the downpour at the end of the day!

Have you ever considered using clinical hypnotherapy to address a problem you have? Clinical hypnotherapy is a technique that is now becoming widely recognised by many health professionals. Clinical Hypnotherapy stimulates the innate healing capacity our bodies possess and, as such, the list of problems which may be responsive to Clinical Hypnotherapy is long and varied. Clinical hypnotherapy has been successful in helping people to stop smoking, managing pain, stress, anxiety, habits and phobias and also helping people to reduce weight. Medical research has found Clinical Hypnotherapy to be a beneficial tool to manage the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) stated in their 2008 Guidelines that “Hypnotherapy and/or Psychological Therapy should be considered for people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, who do not respond to pharmacological treatments after 12 months and who develop a continuing symptom profile. Dr Peter Whorwell, a gastroenterologist working in Manchester, became interested in the potential of hypnotherapy for IBS patients over 20 years ago. He kept his new interest under wraps from sceptical colleagues until research proved it was effective. The therapy has proved highly effective, with a recent study showing it had helped 71% of patients for up to five years after their course of treatment. Dr Whorwell told the BBC "People are suspicious because they have seen stage hypnotists, but you cannot be hypnotised against your will and you

won’t act out of character while you’re hypnotised. “Dr Whorwell is trying to spread the word to other doctors around the country. But he says many are still reluctant to use the technique. Some people are concerned that they will ‘lose control’ in hypnosis. However, regardless of how deeply people may go in to hypnosis and however passive they may appear to be, they actually remain in full control of the situation. They are able to talk if they wish to (or not, as the case may be) and can terminate the session, stand up, or leave the room at any time. A hypnotised person cannot be made to do anything that contravenes their usual ethical, moral or religious beliefs. It is likely that the fear of loss of control originates from most people’s misconception of stage hypnosis, where participants are apparently persuaded to perform all types of (usually foolish) acts. However, it is worth remembering that participation in a stage act is an entirely voluntary process (therefore ‘permission’ is already given to the hypnotist) and that any person who volunteers in such a situation is fully aware of exactly what they are letting themselves in for. During hypnotherapy you will be gently guided into a deeply relaxed state where you will be encouraged to address negative thoughts, which have led to unwanted behaviours, addictions or phobias. This works by placing positive suggestions into your subconscious mind and provides you with tools to help overcome unwanted thoughts and behaviours. The aim is then to replace these with positive thought processes and healthy

behaviour. If you are interested in receiving help from a Clinical Hypnotherapist, ensure that they are qualified and are registered with regulating bodies such as The General Hypnotherapy Register and The Complementary and Healthcare Council (CNHC). The CHNC is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners and was set up with government support to protect the public

by providing a UK register of complementary therapists. Only qualified and approved Clinical Hypnotherapists can register with these bodies and they ensure all registrants meet essential criteria for safe and professional practice. Nicola Rose DipCH BSc (Hons) RNutr is a fully Registered Nutritionist and Clinical Hypnotherapist. She works for a specialist NHS weight management service and also runs a private weight management/hypnotherapy pratice.

On 7th November from 10.30am until 12noon Great Longstone Pre-School is holding its most popular fundraising event of the year, the annual Nearly New Sale. This year we are hoping to attract even more people to the sale by offering free entry and there will be a raffle and cake stall in addition to the fantastic array of baby and children’s items on offer. In previous years, money raised at the sale has been put to good use in updating the building, facilities and play equipment and this year, like last, the money will be used to improve the garden area. Local mum, Jo, said; “The sale is great; I go every year! Last year I bought a buggy to put in the car/take on holiday as well as a travel cot to keep at the grandparents’ house and all of the ‘stocking-filler’ toys for the kids for Christmas and I don’t think I spent more than about £15” The Pre-School has been a registered charity for over 30 years and relies on fundraising and support from parents, staff and volunteers in order to continue to run successfully. It is at the heart of the local

community and, over the years, has helped hundreds of children make the best start possible in their school careers, as well as having lots of fun in the process! The Nearly New Sale provides a marketplace for people to sell their good quality children’s and babies’ toys, games, books, equipment and clothes. Sellers make money whilst recycling their pre-loved items and the pre-school benefits by taking a percentage of the total sales made. After the sale, many sellers ask us to donate any unsold items on their behalf. The toys and equipment go to a group in Sheffield called ‘Families Together’ which provides support and counselling to disadvantaged families and this year many of the clothes will go to Matlock group ‘Hope for Refugees’ and the books to Holme Hall School and Children’s Centre in Chesterfield to help them in setting up their pre-school library. If you are interested in selling, please contact Georgie on 07510 312 637 or by email on email@greatlongstonepresc

Derbyshire Dales Councillor Peter Slack decided to support Wirksworth Swimming Pool through the sale of some of his garden produce. Following last December’s sales of Christmas trees, Councillor Slack spent the Spring and Summer months selling flowers and plants at Wirksworth Market, and has lately sold bulbs, raising a total amount of £1,300 which he has very kindly donated to Wirksworth Swimming Pool. Councillor Slack met with Dave Baker, chair of the Wirksworth Swimming Pool trustees, to hand over a cheque for the money raised. Dave Baker comments: “It is very important for a selffinancing charity such as Wirksworth Swimming Pool to have donations that can support the development and upkeep of the pool. Since taking over the management of the pool in 2012, every piece of the plant room has required replacement. Councillor Slack’s donation will cover the costs of replacing the swimming pool pumps,

Dave Baker receives a cheque for £1,300 from Councillor Peter Slack which required changing this summer”. The trustees and staff are hoping that the Bingo Night taking place at the red Lion pub on 23rd October will equally help to raise much-needed funds to continue maintaining and developing the pool. Tickets for the Bingo Night are available from the Pool office.

1st Nov

What a fabulous day in Rutland! Four members of the Darley Dale committee travelled to Rutland Water Golf Course, Oakham for the East Midlands In Bloom awards ceremony. It was always going to be a challenge to match the achievements of last year but to consolidate our position with another Silver Gilt award was no mean feat! The points allocated this year maintained our position, putting us just 8 points away from our aspirational target of a Gold Award in the Small Town category. Furthermore, Jo Stanistreet and her team at the Flower In The Field project were presented with the Judges Award for the cleverly laid out gardens in petal sections, with each section growing something different. The judges stated that this is an “amazing

allotment facility which encourages people with mental health issues to dabble with soil and plants as a fun activity”. They were extremely complimentary about the tour of Darley Dale on 17th July, declaring it “an interesting tour which included sites of historical interest, residential gardens, quality open spaces, new planting schemes and colourful floral displays”. The judges enjoyed “the short but informative open horsedrawn carriage drive around Whitworth Park by Caroline Dale-Leech who pointed out areas of interest, improvement and possible future projects”. The Judges’ Report particularly stated that visiting Darley Dale Primary School “gave the judges the opportunity to meet a group of very enthusiastic children,

keen to show off their wildlife garden”. Specific mention was given in the report to the new Willow Way Knot Garden project where “the local community can really see and enjoy the improvements”. With the judges identification of areas for further development, our own increasing number of projects planned for the 2016 competition, in addition to continued consolidation of

the 2015 achievements there is a great deal of work to be done. The Darley Dale In Bloom committee would really welcome additional volunteers to come forward through their website: so that their particular interests may be addressed and the overall available effort-levels increased to further support this developing cause.

BASLOW SENIOR CITIZEN’S CLUB Our October 2nd Autumn Outing to Denby Pottery was enjoyed by all. Our November meetings are both at Baslow Village Hall – our usual venue – at 2pm. On November 13 Berlie Doherty will talk about “A Writer’s Life”: there will be books to buy. On November 27th we will welcome Kate and Keith

Brown to give another of their Audio Visual Shows “Double Vision” which we have previously admired. Refreshments will be served, as always. We continue to attract new members to our thriving club. You don’t have to live in Baslow. Just come along, or phone Christopher Wragg on Baslow 583228.

PASTPart AGES OF THE PEAK 11 – Under Stuart Rule

Continued from Page 1 On 30 January 1649, the man they had died for, Charles 1, was beheaded, escorted to the block by Ashbourne-born Gilbert Sheldon, a future Archbishop of Canterbury. And in peacetime … War aside, the Peak enjoyed conflicting fortunes under the early Stuarts, from intermittent outbreaks of plague to successful leadmining ventures supported by the introduction of soughs. A travelling writer noted that leadminers ate exceptionally well, with overindulgence in gambling and drinking seen only at Christmas. Under Cromwell’s Puritan control, however, all traditional merrymaking would be banned. Churches were cleared of any possessions unsuited to austere worship, fonts being discarded and Catholic memorials removed or defaced. In 1650, Cromwell’s commissioners undertook the Parliamentary Survey of livings, any clergyman with Royalist leanings being listed as ‘reputed scandalous’. One of their number was Thomas Bocking of Hope who had actually taken up arms for Charles 1. Bonsall’s rector, on the other hand, led his parishioners in complying with an unpopular Puritan decree demanding monthly one-day fasts from ‘bodily delights, rich apparel and such like.’ To drink the king’s health was seditious; in 1651 Samuel Carrington of Youlgrave accused two fellow tipplers of such dangerous loyalty. It was Youlgrave church that in 1904 was presented with a ragged banner embroidered ‘To the Sacred Memory of his most excellent Majesty, Charles the First, King and Martyr’. The donor was Captain H.S.Wheatly-

Scottish followers were preceded by rumours of their wild, uncivilized behaviour; Peak farmers hid their livestock in the hills, families at Hope Woodlands buried their valuables, and a treasured grandfather clock was hidden in a lead mine at Eyam. Occasional hungry and footsore stragglers lost their way in the hills – a highlander’s dirk and claymore were found many years later at Hathersage. The Bowman family of Youlgrave acquired a treasured heirloom in the form of a pair of long, silk plaid cross-garters. Each bore a woven motto: ‘God Bless the Prince, who had long since, a Right unto the Crown’ and the other: ‘Then Let us Fight, in armour bright, to pull Usurper down’. But the ‘Usurper’ held onto his crown and the cause of the Stuarts was crushed forever at Culloden on 16 April 1746. Julie Bunting

Fulwoods Rock annual Castleton Garland ceremony. With traditional merrymaking back in full swing, Bonsall honoured Charles 11 – the ‘Merry Monarch’ – with the building of the picturesque King’s Head Inn in 1677. Tragically, one more deathly silent Christmas had meanwhile been endured at Eyam, devastated by bubonic plague and in voluntary isolation. Elsewhere around the Peak domestic trade began to prosper: ropes from Castleton, shoes from Stoney Middleton, stockings from Litton and leather goods and tinplate ware from Tideswell. A strange penalty was introduced to boost the wool trade, albeit defied at Sheen when three bodies were buried in linen instead of the decreed wool, each burial incurring a £5 fine. King Charles was succeeded by his brother, James 11, whose unpopularity would lead to his overthow in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. William

Rebellion led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart, exiled grandson of James 11, who in 1745 set out to wrest the crown from the House of

Hanover. ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’ marched his army through Ashbourne on 3rd December but three days later was in retreat. His bedraggled

Cavendish, 4th Earl of Devonshire, was involved in the plot that brought James’s daughter Mary and her husband, William of Orange, to the throne. Cavendish was created 1st Duke of Devonshire and Marquis of Hartington in gratitude. Five years later, the last remnants of medieval justice saw a Derbyshire farm girl executing by burning under a charge of petty treason for murdering her master. Market day floggings were still a common spectacle, with both men and women being whipped at Bakewell and Wirksworth. Victories, prosperity and rebellion At the death of King William in 1702, Mary’s sister Anne came to the throne. Even with the introduction of turnpike roads in 1706, travelling in the Peak at this time was ‘tedious and the miles long’ but industrial progress was gathering momentum. In 1714, Yatestoop Mine at Winster became the first Derbyshire lead mine to install a steam pumping engine. Mining brought considerable prosperity to this part of England – lead tithes at Wirksworth and Eyam peaked at around £1200 and £1800 respectively. Roads through the southern Peak lay on the route of the ill-fated Jacobite

You have probably heard about Neighbourhood Planning but just what is a Neighbourhood Plan and how does it affect Bakewell? A Neighbourhood Plan is a community’s opportunity to shape and guide development that will take place locally and helps ensure that it is appropriate to its needs and aspirations. It gives people a real say in where that development happens and how it looks and would be used by Peak District National Park to make decisions about developments. Following the Localism Act 2011 Bakewell, like many communities, decided to produce a Neighbourhood Plan and received designated status in November 2013. In July 2014 the Bakewell Partnership agreed to form a

Working Group to produce the Plan. Representing the views of residents, businesses and visitors, the group is open to anybody, of any age, who

would like to help our community identify issues and plan for the future of Bakewell. The areas we are looking at are:

•Economy •Housing •Transport and Communication •Education, Leisure, Sport and Arts •Environment Two Public Events are being planned to showcase the work done so far and to seek the views of the community, so why not come along and give your view? The dates for your diary are 2pm-4pm Wednesday 4th November 2015 and 6pm8pm Thursday 19th November 2015 both in the Court Room, Town Hall, Bakewell. To see further details go to or contact John Rowe, Town Clerk, Town Hall, Bakewell 01629 813 525 townclerk@bakewelltown

PUBLIC EVENTS Drop in to see the displays and comment on the proposals. The Neighbourhood Plan Group will be available to talk about the Plan and how you can help shape the future development of Bakewell.

CROMFORD WI ~ OCTOBER 2015 MEETING President Christine Levasseur opened the October meeting by welcoming the speaker for the evening, Margaret Armour. Margaret makes figures from hessian and brought along examples of her work. The pieces included girls and boys playing and reading, mothers and babies, animals and a nativity scene. Her first figure was a woman blackberrying, made for a competition in Chesterfield thirty years ago. There was a lot of interest and Margaret began holding craft evenings and for a time sold her work on market stalls in Chesterfield and Buxton. Now she gives talks to interested

Stitch &


groups. Up to twelve inches in height, the figures traditionally have no facial features and show one foot peeping from their skirts. It is an ancient craft originating in Korea. Margaret was thanked for her talk by Ann Pocklington and members were able to buy these charming figures as ideal Christmas presents or treats for themselves. During September there was a knit and natter afternoon and a fish and chip supper hosted by Ambergate WI. Some members went to see ‘Brassed Off’ at Derby Theatre.

Curtains, Pelmets, Valances, Blinds, Cushions, Loose Covers for all types of furniture. All made to measure, plus fitting service, alterations and re-linings. Also, upholstery. Please ring 01433 621864 or mobile 07769 974756

Congratulations were extended to Janet Chambers, the winner of the Poetry Writing category at the DFWI Eisteddfod held on 11 September. The subject was “One Hundred�, marking 100 years of the WI in Britain. Janet can be seen reading her poem on youtube. Future plans include a guided tour of Buxton Pavilion, a Birmingham Historical Walk and a Concert celebrating the WI’s centenary at St Mary’s Church, Mill Road, Cromford

on 30 October. The Derbyshire Constabulary Male Voice Choir, the SherWin Singers and Tilly Gardener on clarinet will be performing.

1st Bakewell Brownies are always supporting charity and last month chose to raise money in support of ‘Jeans for Genes.’ The Brownies spent their evening learning about genetic disorders and taking part in fun activities. The evening was a great success and they raised £30.00 for the event. Every year 1st Bakewell Brownies, like any other member of Girl Guiding UK, aims to raise money and awareness of charitable organisations within the local community. The unit does this every year by taking part in Remembrance Day and Blessing of the Wells each year and also by taking part in the Shoebox appeal. The Brownies enjoy taking part in events within the community and also feel proud to raise money for charity. ‘Jeans for Genes’ is an annual fundraising event, this year on 18th September raising money for Genetic Disorders UK. The aim of the event is to educate people so they have a better understanding and

acceptance of children with Genetic Disorders. The money will create grants to fund care and support for the children and their families. One grant will be spent on essential equipment such as pain relieving beds, wheelchairs and car seats. This grant was created in conjunction with the Newlife Foundation and will make a real and lasting difference to the lives of the children and their families. The Brownies all donated money and wore jeans or something blue for the evening. They learnt all about Children with Brittle Bones from answering questions from several worksheets. Then they went on to decorate some denim squares with beads, jewels and glitter in teams before creating their own biscuits with bright blue icing. To find out more information about ‘Jeans for Genes’ day, visit http://www.jeansforgenes If you want more information about joining Brownies in Bakewell contact - Heidi on 01629 810369.

65 members of Derbyshire Royal British Legion Women’s Section gathered at the RBL Club Allestree, on Saturday 3rd October, for their annual County Conference, which was opened with the entry of the County and Branch Standards carried by Julie Boardman, Louise Arnold and Valerie Halls. This was followed by the Act of Homage by the County Chairman and prayers by the Rev. Alicia Dring of Littleover. Guest of honour was Wendy Bromwich, the Past National Chairman of the Women’s Section. Mrs Maureen Kreuger, a long standing hard working member of Bakewell Branch, was awarded not 1 but 2 special awards at the Conference First in the afternoon came the Sheila Pratt Trophy for outstanding work by a member of the Women’s Section for her Branch. Maureen has been a member of the Branch committee for over 30 years’, she helps at all the fundraisers, runs the raffles at the meetings and even helps serve the refreshments. Later on in the proceedings she was

highest award that can be given to a member by the Women’s Section. She said:

“This is a long overdue award and extremely well deserved”.

There has been a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ action by Heage Windmill Society since the discovery, just over a month ago, of wet rot in the fan and the main supports for the cap and sails at Heage Windmill. The extent of the damage has been largely determined and a course of action needed for the repair has been established. Sources of major funding such as Heritage Lottery and Heritage England have been contacted and various web and postal based routes for donations have been established – so far raising £15K. The work has been separated into two elements – the front end, where the sails operate, and the fan tail at the rear; this automatically turns the sails to face into the wind. We have also determined that, as a prerequisite to obtaining finance from major funders, no work can be started at all until funding processes have been agreed by them,

generally a four month process! This would mean it would not be possible for the mill to operate by the end of March 2016, when the new season starts. As a result the Trust has decided that they will proceed immediately with the ‘front’ end work and continue to seek major funds for the fantail area, possibly meaning this work may not be implemented until the following winter. The initial action will be to remove the sails, which will be stored locally, and the mill maintenance team of volunteers will then service them while they are on the ground. Tenders will be quickly circulated to millwrights and contracts then placed as soon as possible for other front end work, to commence hopefully in December and be completed before the end of March 2016. Funds to finance this work are still urgently needed and donations can easily be made via our web site

Mr Mathew Lafite was a last minute substitute for Charles Hanson and gave a very interesting and humorous talk on Silver. We learned that England has the oldest Hallmarking system in the world dating back to 1300 and established to protect the value of the currency. We also learned that ‘Silver’ is an alloy of 925 parts silver and 75 of tin as silver is too soft to be used on its own. We learned that the ‘Hallmarks’ in the form of symbols were used because, when they were first used, most people could not read and the symbols referred to a city. Mathew said Silver was used for practical implements and showed us a Stilton scoop dated 1814 with an ivory handle

which can be sold in Britain but not in the U.S.A. as they have an outright ban on the sale of ivory. He highlighted the prices paid for top quality works by Paul Store who was silversmith to George 3rd. Some pieces have sold for £1,000,000 but he died penniless as he pursued quality above all else. He told stories of Charles Hanson’s ability to publicise interesting objects including an original ‘Sooty’ puppet which fetched £7000 but led to a flood of ‘Sootys’ of little value. The next open meeting is talking about ‘Periods and Styles of Furniture’ on Friday November 13th at 7.30pm in the Imperial rooms Matlock.


In their long awaited return, the Chorale Singers from Sheffield will sing a programme of festive music in preparation for Christmas. The concert will be held in Taddington Church on

Saturday 21st November at 7pm (note starting time) and will be followed by seasonal refreshments. Tickets, as usual will be jsut £5 from 01298 85534 and early booking is advised.

Town Women’s Guild Members met on 11th August in Bakewell Town Hall for a ‘chat and stitch’, we were preparing small stockings reading to decorate our Christmas tree for the annual Tree Festival at All Saints Church, Bakewell, it is a truly beautiful display of locally decorated trees, well

Winster School were sorry to say ‘farewell’ to their Clerk to Governors recently. Jennie Lillis has been supporting the work of the governors with tact, humour, efficiency and biscuits since she came to the village 6 years ago. As well as heaps of photocopying and the occasional late night, there have been important decisions about the future of the school, and the clerk is one of those unsung roles that make a big difference to

how the school runs. Jennie said “I’ve loved the job and would highly recommend it as a way of really understanding the education the children receive. I’ve appreciated the insight it gave me into all the work that goes into making a happy and successful school”. We are now looking for someone else to fill this vital post. If this could be you, please contact Mike Hatfield (Chair) on 01629 650468.

members prepared the stockings and with

instructions and lots of enthusiasm we completed

the required number. On 22nd September our 4th birthday tea celebration at the Rutland Hotel Bakewell was as always an enjoyable occasion, plenty of laughter and chat, a chance for new members to meet. On 29th September the Coop in Bakewell allowed a team of members to have a Town Womens Guild Promotion Day, they were extremely helpful supplying everything we needed to make our day a success. A great deal of interest was shown and we talked to as many people as we could. We look forward to meeting visitors and new members at all our meetings.

A FEAST OF LOCAL ALE AND FOOD IN WIRKSWORTH Hot on the heels of presenting a brilliant festival of music and performance, Town Hall Events are now launching Wirksworth’s first Beer Festival. The Festival will take place 24 October 2015, from 14.00 until 23.00. There will be 22 different real ales from 11 breweries available, as well as a bar with ciders, wine and soft drinks. Entry is free and all the proceeds are going to improving the performance facilities in the Town Hall. All breweries are local to or as close as possible to Wirksworth, with the nearest being the new brewery ‘Goal Ales’, brewed at the Old Lock Up at North End. A bit further away is ‘Ashleyhay Brewery’, where Jim grows his own hops and brews some of the town’s favourite beers. Other breweries include ‘Amber Ales’, ‘Leadmill’ and ‘Shiny’, all great breweries and none further than 20 miles away. The entertainment on the day will be local too, with many favourites from Wirksworth and a wide range of styles. There will be folk from Chris Cole, blues from the ‘Standing Stones’, rock from ‘Rooster Bush’ and of course the award winning ukulele orchestra, ‘Wuzzalele’. We are especially pleased to welcome to the stage young (between 12 to 15!) rockers ‘Barnie Rubblz’ from over the hill in Denby. Local filmmaker Gavin Repton from ‘Lost pubs of Wirksworth’ fame, has provided the publicity for the

festival. He will be showing clips from his popular film and the DVD will be on sale. For those interested in the history of beer and beer drinking in Wirksworth, there will be displays available on the day. Of course, good beer

deserves good food; we have teamed up with local foodies to bring you tasty snacks, cheese and even chocolate. Hoping to see you in the Town Hall on the 24th. Please like us on Facebook ‘Wirksworth Beer Festival’.

DERWENT VALLEY FLOWER CLUB At the October meeting, Roma Berridge of Bingham, Nottinghamshire, cut across our enjoyment of the recent warm spell and late summer atmosphere we were enjoying, and reminded us of the looming, imminent change of season. Roma quietly and straightforwardly brought her ideas of the bounty of flowers that reflect rich autumn colours. Burnished browns interspersed with deep reds, yellows and oranges surely brought a harvest home feeling. Roma brought individuality and a twist from the norm with her containers and use of foliage. I took away a few ideas and a new technique to try and emulate in my own simpler version and so my flower arranging hobby had a little ‘push’. Our demonstration was

followed by homemade cakes and coffee and a good chatter with those present: a fitting end to another pleasant, entertaining evening. Tickets are now on sale for our special Open Meeting on the 3rd

December. National and International Floral Designer Carl Wilde has visited Derwent Valley Flower Club before and so we can guarantee that his brand of humourous delivery will bring laughter on a regular basis and many

‘wow’ moments. For information and tickets please phone Christine on 01433 630161. 5th November is our next meet at Calver Village Hall @ 7.45pm. Easy parking and a warm welcome awaits, so do join us.

A young, expanding, local business has moved into Hathersage in the Hope Valley in a strategic move towards continued growth. Peak Architects moved into new premises, welcomed new key team member, Architectural Technologist Lloyd Wilson, and celebrated one of their completed design projects winning a prestigious Sustainability Award, all in the space of a few weeks. The innovative RIBA architectural practice delivers inspiring design and buildings that are both exciting and practical to the residential and commercial markets, and boasts a 100% success rate with planning applications for projects in the Peak District National Park. Working across a variety of sectors and at all scales of development, Peak Architects offers a reassuring track record with a fresh approach, with client collaboration and sustainability at the top of their agenda.

The Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB), South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire Region, awarded the Sustainability Award 2015 last week to Carmody Construction for a 1950s bungalow refurbishment in the Hope Valley, with design and construction drawings by Peak Architects. Speaking at their new offices, PeakArchitects Director, Paul Holden, said, “We are

delighted to be involved in this winning project, which comes at a very exciting time for us as we are expanding our team and settling into fabulous new premises. “The need to increase the quality and sustainability of our homes and business premises should be a given, not an exception. This award shows that the age of the property and it being in the Peak Park is not a barrier.

“Our reason for locating to the Hope Valley is quite strategic as its location allows us to continue to develop our existing client base in the Hope Valley and Sheffield City region, whilst allowing us to target new business in the North West, North Yorkshire and the Midlands.” For a free consultation, please call Paul on 01433 424442 / 0114 303 4442.

Sapphire Wealth Consultancy could hold the key to unlock your investment worries... How are your finances? Do you even know? For many of us, managing our money - especially longterm investments and pensions - is a tedious business, something to get around to ‘one day’. But that could be to our considerable cost. Because we could all be missing out on better returns - or paying too much to the taxman, says private client advisor Rick Wyse. Rick runs Bakewellbased Sapphire Wealth Consultancy LLP, providing independent financial advice to private and corporate clients. “Clients often have policies and say they don’t know what they are worth,” he explains. “People’s finances are usually a mess because it’s the last thing you think about when you get home from work. I put - and keep - clients’ finances in good order”. Sapphire offers wealth management expertise to help customers maximise the potential growth of their investments and pensions and reduce the tax payable, where appropriate.

business 16 years ago. He says, “I offer a personal service, mostly home visits and office visits. “A lot of my business comes from people whose portfolios are performing badly or who are frightened of the Government taking most of their money off them in tax or long term care costs”. He adds, “I find most people aged over 70 are worried about having to fund their own care costs. But with forward planning and putting their affairs in order they can avoid certain pitfalls. “Also, many people haven’t got a will and, if they have, it is outdated. If you don’t keep your will updated, you can end up giving too much to the tax man”. Equity release is another key area. “People are often sitting on a lot of equity in their property

because house prices have risen significantly”, says Rick. “They can release capital to enjoy their lives or to help their children. Many people raise money on their property to use as deposits on their children’s first home”. Whatever investments people have, management is crucial, he insists: “I look at what clients have got now, ask what they want their money to do and sort it out. Then I continually keep that plan on target that’s the secret, keeping in touch and regularly reviewing policies. You can reduce how much tax you pay by keeping on top of your finances and can improve performance just by tweaking investments. It’s all about peace of mind. Regular reviews take the strain out of financial concerns”.

ON THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE Andrew B Sharkey Ltd has been authorised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) to carry out non-contentious probate work. This means that I am now able to deal with a deceased person’s assets and liabilities and manage the probate process. Immediately after the death, funeral arrangements will need to be made. The family or executor will notify the deceased’s relatives and potential beneficiaries of the estate. Deaths should normally be registered at any register office within five days unless a coroner’s report is required. The registrar will need to see the requisite paperwork (medical certificate showing cause of death, passport etc). You can request that all relevant government agencies are informed of the death by the ‘Tell Us Once’ scheme. You will receive a green form that gives permission for burial or cremation. You will also receive a death certificate. It is advisable to obtain a number of copies. If there are any dependants or pets, you will need to ascertain what arrangements have been

put in place to care for them. Such matters may often be referred to in the will. The assets of the estate must be protected. If the deceased has left a property, you will need to notify the insurers. You may need to turn off and drain the central heating system. Regular visits to the property should be organised and valuables placed in storage, keeping notes of the items removed. Have a reliable witness with you. Most importantly, you should search for the latest, valid will. You may need to contact professionals such as solicitors and bankers or the Principal Probate Registry. You will need to notify commercial organisations, banks, credit card providers, pension providers, utility providers, financial service providers. When the death is notified, it is usual to send a copy of the death certificate and to request any specific forms, to realise the estate assets. You should also request a valuation at the date of death. The assets and liabilities of the estate need to be identified. Written third

party confirmations of asset holdings and valuations will be obtained at this stage. You should identify memberships and licences that could be cancelled to obtain a refund. Debts should also be ascertained. These include funeral

expenses. You will need to identify the beneficiaries, either from the will, or under the intestacy rules if no will has been left. In my next article I will outline the probate process.

Hallowe’en is just the time to revive certain spectral occupants of our historic Peakland halls. Built for the gentry, these properties were often home to eccentric and sometimes dissolute characters who caused trouble in life and, it seems, long afterwards. Spooks have been recorded for more than 600 years at Highlow Hall near Hathersage. The hauntings seem to have begun with the death of the last male of the Archer family in the 1340s, upon which two daughters became co-heiresses to Highlow. The elder sister immediately became an attractive marital proposition to Nicholas Eyre, son of the Lord of the Manor of Hope. Sadly, when Nicholas turned his attentions to the younger Miss Archer instead, her jilted and distraught sister took her own life. The ambitious Nicholas married the now sole heiress but before long the spirit of his deceased sister-inlaw returned to haunt him. She cursed his line, predicting male heirs to 15 generations; their descendants would marry into blue-blood families, accumulate thousands of acres of land and some would wear coronets. Then they would lose it all. Sure enough, the Eyres went on to hold the lordships of 20 manors and more than 20,000 acres of land. Three of their line became countesses. Yet by 1842 this once prolific family had died out and their diminished estates were purchased by the Duke of Devonshire. he hapless Nicholas Eyre had also bequeathed another ghost to Highlow Hall after taking his sword to a stonemason caught shirking. A later spectre, in his lifetime a close friend of Robert Eyre, put in an appearance being after being cut down by the other’s sword during a drunken quarrel. Some believed that the victim could not rest after his killer escaped justice on a plea of selfdefence. Other ghosts continued to haunt Highlow long after it became a farmhouse. Farmhands and a delivery man all reported seeing the pale wraith of a woman cross the courtyard to enter the house and ascend the staircase. Tradition has it that she was another murder

victim; the sounds of an unseen heavy object being dragged downstairs seemed to replay the removal of her body. During an exorcism by a lay preacher, a woman and child apparently materialised at the head of the stairs. Moorseats Hall, also at Hathersage, not only claims a spectral white lady, who wanders around the house and grounds, but another female ghost who visits one particular bedroom to enquire whether the occupant is comfortable. The broken-hearted daughter of a famous Peakland family in Tudor times regularly made her presence felt long after she expired, mad with grief. The ghost of Margaret Vernon, whose forebears owned Hazlebadge Hall at Bradwell from 1421, could be seen retracing her frenzied ride on a white horse back to Hazlebadge from Hope church, where she had been forced to witness the wedding of her faithless lover to another. Forbidden love lies behind ghostly sightings at Winster Hall, where over 200 years ago the wealthy daughter of the house lost her heart to the family coachman. Ordered to part, the couple climbed to the roof of the building and leaped hand-in-hand to their deaths. A broken-hearted maid servant is doomed forever to roam the bedrooms and grounds of Hartington Hall in search of her famous lover, Bonnie Prince Charlie no less, who had romanced the girl during an overnight stay on his march south in 1745. The prince promised to come back for her but it was not to be. To the death Occasional sightings of a ‘grey lady’ are connected with Old Hall Farm in Youlgrave, while Youlgrave Hall has a tradition of phantom noises emanating from an upper room. Legend has it that a sword fight to the death between a Cavalier and



a Roundhead is re-enacted here each November on the anniversary of the fatal duel. Visitors staying at Ilam Hall, now a Youth Hostel, have complained of being woken during the night by a ‘white lady’ who wanders the corridors and grounds. There are also tales of a phantom coach seen turning at Ilam Hall. Taddington Hall lays claim to two spectral former occupants, one of them a drunken farmer who died after falling from his horse while returning from his weekly jaunt to Bakewell market. His wife was still unaware of the tragedy when she heard his horse clatter into the farmyard – then watched with horror as her husband materialised inside the house before dissolving into thin air. The other Taddington Hall ghost, known as Isaac, was supposedly murdered by his brother during a quarrel that took place in the cellars, where they ran a hessian factory. Isaac made his presence felt during the severe winter of 1947 when he turned up to help farmer Bill Furness to stable a sick mare. Bill heard a man’s voice steadying the animal, yet there was no-one to be seen, nor any footprints in the fresh snow. Visitors to Eyam Hall might keep an eye open for the apparition of Sarah Mills, a young servant girl who drowned herself in the well but still answers the night bell. The shy ghost of an old man also seems at home in this lovely old house, just sitting contentedly by the fireside. A piercing wail A cruel and greedy woman is blamed for the haunting of Gradbach Hall in the Dane Valley, occupied in the distant past by a wealthy titled couple named Downes. Their sole heiress was a beautiful daughter, who in the course of time brought her husband to live here with her parents. But her financial expectations were shattered when, late in life, her mother Lady Downes gave birth to a healthy son. He was now heir to the family fortune. The boy was hated by his sister who, tragically for him, became his guardian on the death of their parents. He was mistreated and kept confined to a dark attic, where he was found dead shortly after a piercing wail was heard




in the night. From this time his sister seemed cursed; she lived to see the sale of all her lands and the loss of her much coveted wealth. Strange goings-on at Wheston Hall, near Tideswell were recorded by writer Clarence Daniel: ‘Long years have passed, yet Wheston Hall O’erlooks the Tor and Dale, Where huge, fantastic rocks upreared Defy the Winter’s Gale; And rustics, clustering round the fire Oft tell the ghostly tale.’ The ‘ghostly tale’ had been relayed to Daniel by a certain ‘Master John’, who in 1918 was visited in his bedroom at Wheston Hall on three successive nights by the spectre of an elderly woman wearing a poke bonnet. By the third appearance the youth was in a state of terror and moved into another room. Although he never saw her again for himself, Master John spoke of many other sightings of the Old Woman of Wheston Hall. One such followed a Saturday night card game between local farmhands and their neighbours. No-one noticed when the fingers of the clock passed midnight … but the players were now gambling on the Sabbath. The outer door burst open to reveal a furious old lady in a poke bonnet … a blast of air blew the playing cards in all directions and chairs and tables were upturned before she disappeared into thin air. Another regular ghost at Wheston Hall, known as Soldier Dick, seemed to be associated with the life-sized figure of an armoured man standing guard inside the main entrance. It could not be disposed of for fear of retribution, so a compromise was reached by burying it beneath rubble in the cellar during building work. Thus Soldier Dick was apparently laid to rest. A nameless ghostly lady seen at Goosehill Hall, Castleton during the 1930s paled into insignificance compared to the intermittent glimpses of a spectral medieval tournament taking place in the grounds. Such a spectacle must be unsurpassed here in the Peak, where no historic hall seems complete without at least one resident ghost to its name. Julie Bunting

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

After the sell-out success of The Accrington Pals, Peter Whelan’s moving play about the first world war, last November, Hope Valley College students are gearing up for their next drama production. This year, director David Shimwell has chosen to challenge students with an extended run of Shakespeare’s best loved comedy, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ In this modern telling of the story, (using Shakespeare’s original text), we are setting the play in the Atheneum Public School where the Headmaster and his deputy (Theseus and Hippolyta) are about to marry; the Lovers Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena are the Head Boy and Head Girl and their deputies;

the Mechanicals are a group of tearaway Y11 students (who spend most of their time in detention!) and the fairies are… well… fairies. Lysander and Hermia are in love, but Hermia is promised to Demetrius, and Hermia’s best friend, Helena is in love with him! They all run into the forest, Lysander and Hermia to elope, Demetrius to stop them, Helena to catch him. Meanwhile… the Mechanicals are rehearsing a play to celebrate their Headmaster’s wedding. They go into the woods to rehearse, where Bottom ends up with a donkey’s head, and in the amorous clutches of Titania, the Queen of the fairies. Of course, causing havoc everywhere is the knavish Puck, a shape-shifting sprite

whose delight is to cause trouble, upset and mischief at every opportunity.

This year the 5th November marks the 410th anniversary of the failed Gunpowder Plot, hatched by Guy Fawkes in 1605. The festivities of Guy Fawkes Night, or Bonfire Night, have also absorbed a far older tradition, one related to All Souls’ Day which falls on November 2nd. This date was known in the Peak as Tindles Day, tindles being bonfires lit in the fields to burn straw that was then spread on the land, a custom rooted in heathen purification rites. Older readers may recall being ‘pleased to remember’ the 5th of November by sharing portions of Thar Cake, also known as Thor or Tharf Cake. With its main ingredients of oatmeal, treacle and ginger, it was very similar to parkin or flapjack. Bradwell Primitive Methodists used to hold a Thar Cake supper on the Saturday nearest 5th November, with families gathering in their neighbours’ homes for Thar Cake Joinings. Hathersage villagers paid into a modest Tharf Cake fund, a portion of the cake being kept until the following year. Prior to 1830, Youlgrave church bells were always rung on the anniversary of the

Gunpowder Plot; similarly a charitable bequest at Baslow provided 10 shillings to the clergyman for preaching an annual thanksgiving service. All the Somebodies Well into the 19th century, Guy Fawkes Night was also widely celebrated as the anniversary of the Glorious Revolution of 1688, in which the 4th Earl (later 1st Duke) of Devonshire played a major role in bringing William of Orange to the throne. Celebrations marking the first centenary took place at Old Whittington where the Glorious Revolution had been hatched. The centenary event saw the 5th Duke of Devonshire, his two brothers and ‘all the Somebodies of the district’ leading revels which culminated with ‘fireworks for the simples and a ball for the bigwigs.’ In 1861 a Melbourne farmer noted in his diary that the custom of holding a demonstration on 5th November was not what it used to be ... in 1777 the sum of £1.9s.1d had been allowed to the parish overseer for the purchase of gunpowder! Guy Fawkes Night was a popular annual public holiday in Britain until its abolition by Queen Victoria due to riotous behaviour in the streets – traditionally involving too much of the same explosive which had cost its founder his life.

Bakewell Bird Study Group’s next meeting is on Monday November 9th and is presented by local painter, writer, photographer and naturalist Christine Gregory. Her talk ‘A River in Time’ is the title of her book published in 2013. The river in question is the River Bradford which flows through open meadows and deep limestone dales. It has been modified by man

since the Middle Ages and is now a popular walk for visitors to the area. Christine takes us on a photographic journey along the river looking at its flora and fauna as well as its social and industrial history. Though only 4 miles long, the River Bradford has shaped the communities who have lived beside it, and likewise has been shaped by them. The talk is

illustrated by Christine’s photos and explores the river, its wildlife, geology, ecology, history and ongoing plans to protect it and the life it supports. BBSG meetings are at 7:30 in the Friends Meeting House off Matlock Street in Bakewell on Chapel Row next to the Methodist Chapel. Guests are always welcome to our talks (£2) or better still join the group.

The Merchant s Yard

Brace yourself, fellow foodie… The Merchant’s Yard, a brand new stylish, vibrant restaurant and wine bar is opening in November in the picturesque village of Tideswell and promises to bring you a delicious menu, refreshing cocktails and first class service in a relaxing atmosphere. Head chef, Phil Jewell, has previously worked at renowned restaurants such as Malmaison Hotel and

the Royal Exchange Theatre, both in Manchester, as well as the Lemon Tree in Bishops Stortford. He and his team explain their ambition for this exciting new venture. “The Merchant’s Yard will bring a creative menu to Tideswell and its surrounding area using fresh, locally sourced ingredients; we are hoping to develop a reputation for culinary expertise and a friendly, professional service,” explains Phil as he

shows me the menu and prepares a few of the dishes to taste. Dishes include an exciting mix of the nation’s favourites, steaks and Sunday roasts, as well as tasty tapas, soup, meat boards and duck… Just to name a few! The lamb chops in particular were my favourite; a succulent cut of lamb ribs with a fresh herb crust served with a delicious helping of saffron potatoes and tender stemmed

broccoli followed by an exquisite, creamy mango cheesecake. As well as the full à la carte menu the Merchant’s Yard will also be serving late morning teas and coffees and a lunchtime menu from midday, perfect for those of us who need to recharge after those long earlymorning countryside walks. “Creating a memorable place to relax, enjoy great food and drinks in a welcoming setting is really important to all of us here,” says Pete Crease, the head bar man, who has selected a wide range of drinks including cocktails, wine and craft beer

Bull’s Head

Restaurant & Bar

taking care to cater for all tastes and ages. “Whatever the occasion, we want The Merchant’s Yard to be at the top of your list of places to visit and keep

returning for more.” The décor throughout has been carefully designed by Alex Heslop from ‘Peak Inside’, successfully combining a modern industrial feel whilst ensuring it remains honest to the history of the building, as the original Markovitz Merchant’s Yard. “I wanted to give the project strong elements of being current and fashionable whilst not forgetting the traditional and unpretentious nature of the building. The design uses the aged and utilitarian nature of old woods, worn textures and matt metals, alongside the softer and more luxurious edge of beautiful fabrics and furnishings”, says Alex as she shows us her plans for the bar and dining areas. Raw brick walls with reclaimed wooden tabling, a zinc top bar, comfortable leather and velvet

seating, and soft pendant lighting all helps to create the perfect atmosphere to relax and unwind for lunch or an evening meal. If you, like me, enjoy exploring new restaurants then its worth visiting The Merchant’s Yard next

month when it opens; a relaxing atmosphere, good food and refreshing drinks will be waiting for you… Zara Nutt

HARTINGTON HARVEST CELEBRATION Youngsters in Hartington have handed out boxes of food and provisions to elderly members of the community following the village’s Harvest Festival. The annual celebration to give thanks for crops that have grown and the hard work involved in gathering them, took place at St Giles Church on Sunday 4 October. Children from Hartington C of E Primary School worked alongside local member of the community and volunteer, Mrs Bel Kerr, to pack boxes of supplies. They included fruit, vegetables, flowers and tinned produce and were distributed to elderly residents following the harvest service. Items for the boxes were kindly donated by villagers and local businesses. The youngsters also spent time preparing for the harvest commemorations including decorating the church with drawings and

CHRISTMAS MENU Available from the 1st to the 24th December for parties of 6 or more.


~ MAIN COURSES ~ displays. Ministry Assistant, Sophie Etchells taught the children a poem around the meaning of the harvest loaf. Over 100 people attended the event which included a service at the church followed by a pea and pie supper at the Village Hall.

Head Teacher at Hartington C of E Primary School, Tracy Blackwell said: “The Harvest Festival is always a wonderful event as so many people come together to celebrate this special time of year. It is nice to catch up with parents and local residents and for the

pupils to interact with other members of the community. We had a great time packing the provisions boxes alongside Mrs Kerr and the children learnt more about why we commemorate the harvest time as its part of our church school heritage.”


Interested in a slightly different sewing group? We are a group of women who have been meeting together during the autumn-spring months for a few years, to chat and be creative: sewing, knitting, crafting... there are no limits to our creativity. We help each other with the mysteries of knitting (we

have some great knitters), the frustrations of getting a zip in straight, and lots of other such challenges. We have been known to knit fish. Occasionally we have collaborated on a group venture, always a wee bit alternative. But, there is no obligation to take part in this – we basically just have FUN.

We are a friendly, eclectic group with varying levels of skill but all with enthusiasm. We are very keen to welcome new people to the group, meeting on a Thursday evening from 6.30pm at Tansley Community Hall for a couple of hours. We bring whatever we want to work on and have

refreshments. There is a sewing machine and lots of room, the cost is around £3 per night (less if more join us). If you want to know more, ring Lynn on 07809 280603, or just come along, from Thursday 8th October. We would love to meet you......

The Chequers Inn is a traditional Peak District country freehouse sitting below the famous Froggatt Edge in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside and has a strong reputation for fine dining in the area. Using local suppliers to ensure the freshest produce, the menu has evolved over time to create increasingly innovative and sophisticated dishes. This focus on innovation doesn’t mean the good hearty ‘pub classics’ are left out. From traditional fish and chips to a 28-day aged Derbyshire rib eye, the menu delivers on every level to satisfy the tastes of all diners. Head chef Lindsey Divens comments: “For me, The Chequers Inn has always been about quality dining in a traditional but informal atmosphere. We are situated in the most beautiful of countryside with excellent local produce and all this goes into inspiring the food we create.” The AA state that 2 AA Rosettes are awarded to “Excellent restaurants, which aim for and achieve higher standards, better consistency and where a greater precision is apparent in the cooking. There will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients.” The AA Rosette scheme has long been established and successfully recognises cooking at different levels nationwide. The success or failure in achieving Rosettes is based on single or multiple visits to a hotel or restaurant. Essentially, it is a snapshot, whereby the entire meal including ancillary items are assessed. Of all the restaurants across the UK, approximately 10% are of a standard which is worthy of 1 Rosette and above. AA Rosettes are awarded solely by AA Hotel and Restaurant Inspectors. External influences from hotels, restaurants or other guides are not taken into account when awarding Rosettes. If being awarded 2 AA Rosettes wasn’t enough, The Chequers Inn has also just received an AA Breakfast Award, something guests staying at the Inn already appreciate. “Our breakfast award really tops off the overall package The Chequers Inn offers. Our range of hand made preserves, chutneys and marmalades really adds to this and we hope it

translates into a really enjoyable visit for all our guests,” says Manager Debbie Robinson. Owner Jonathan Tindall commented: “It goes without saying that we are absolutely thrilled to be awarded 2 AA Rosettes alongside the AA Breakfast Award. We have been striving for this accolade in recent years and we all believed it was something we could achieve. It is testament to the hard work

and dedication of every member of our team – we are so proud of them.” The Chequers Inn is now taking bookings for its famous ‘Game Week’ in November and, of course, booking for Christmas is now advised. For more information contact The Chequers Inn on 01433 630231, email or visit the website

The Matlock Derwent Valley Lions Club celebrated its founding at the 36th Annual Charter Lunch, held at ‘The Boundary’, South Normanton. This particular anniversary coincided with Lions Clubs’ International Sight Week and principal speaker was Eileen Bagguley from Sight Support Derbyshire; accompanied by Tracey Hazeldine. Also in attendance were District Governor, Paul Stafford and his wife Ann. In keeping with Paul’s natural flair and empathy, he arrived wearing a blindfold, to experience the sensations of loss of sight. Lion President Sheila Emerson outlined the club’s fund-raising and service achievements over the last 12 months. During the after lunch speeches, District Governor Paul took the opportunity to present various awards. Lions Bill Howard and David Wildgoose received long service award pins. Lions Molly Winder and Bill Lansdowne were presented with “Together the Future” certificates as a mark of recognition for their work in the community. 100%

Left to right Tracey Hazeldine (Sight Support Derbyshire), Lion Vice-President Wendy Sanderson, Eileen Bagguley (Sight Support Derbyshire), District Governor Paul Stafford, Lion President Sheila Emerson, Lion Peter Smisson, Lion Ann Stafford attendance pins were presented to Lions Colin Turnbull and Kevin Senior. Eileen Bagguley spoke about the variety of services and equipment available from Sight Support Derbyshire. She appealed for volunteers to add to their growing list of people who would like to help and befriend someone who is

blind or has lost their sight more recently. The District Governor brought greetings from the newly elected International President, Dr. Jitsuhiro Yamada from Japan. He spoke of the valuable service the Matlock Derwent Valley Lions Club gives to the local community. He said to Matlock Mayor, Cllr. Steve

Flitter, who was also in attendance, that he and the people of Matlock should be very proud of the achievements of such a small but very active group of Lions. If anyone would like to know more about us, please look at our website or phone 0845 8339583.

My walk began at All Saints Church in Youlgrave, one of Derbyshire’s finest. It stands majestically at the heart of the village, the tower reaching up toward the heavens. Within are some of the oldest monuments in the County including a fine carving of a figure carrying a staff thought to represent a pilgrim whilst in the chancel is the tomb and effigy of Thomas Cokayne who died in 1488. Because he died before his father, he is depicted as less than life size. The best of all though must surely be an alabaster panel from 1492 behind an altar in the north aisle which is to Robert and Joan Gylbert and their seventeen children. It’s harvest time and there was a wonderful display of a scarecrow type village couple surrounded by local produce. I wonder if they will be recycled on bonfire night as guys? I left the village by walking along Conksbury Lane to the side of The George pub and then just before the last of the houses, I turned right to walk down a narrow lane on a former packhorse route that at one time led over Haddon Fields to Haddon Hall where jaggermen with their trains of pack ponies (the Eddie Stobart’s of the 17th century) would have wound their way taking salt from Cheshire mines or bringing coal from pits around Chesterfield. This brought me down to Raper Lodge and Coalpit Bridge, at what I consider to be one of the most picturesque settings in the National Park. It was a beautiful sunny day and the last green leaves amid rich autumn colours of amber and gold were reflected upon crystal clear waters of the Lathkill. A wander downstream through meadows and stiles and I arrived at Alport, a picture postcard pretty little village where the Lathkill and Bradford marry not far from the telephone box which is now devoid of a means to communicate but contains instead a defibrillator for emergency use. My route from here was an amble beside the Bradford, admiring, as I walked, a flock of chocolate coloured Balwen sheep and a small herd of jet black Dexter cattle grazing on riverside pasture. Scanning the river, I searched in vain for the sight of a kingfisher or vole which on occasion long ago I have caught a glimpse of here. Heading past the ‘swimming pool’ where the water level was only deep enough for a muddy paddle, I continued to the clapper bridge, passing

along the way some longhorn cattle which gave Bradford Dale the appearance of a Constable landscape. Lazing nearby was a ‘stag do’ group of fat Suffolk tups looking as though they had overindulged. After crossing the bridge I continued upstream past fish breeding dams where the path was carpeted by crisp autumn leaves that crunched beneath my feet. At one point an audacious heron was standing in the shallows just a few feet away, surrounded by a dart of little trout innocently

dashing in and out of the shadows. One disappeared before my eyes as the heron crouched down, reached out its long neck and with a single gulp swallowed it whole. After a further wander to where the river was nothing more than a trickle, fighting its way through overgrown undergrowth, I left the Dale, ascending into Middleton-by-Youlgrave. This sleepy little settlement never seems to change with its cluster of pretty cottages surrounding a tall lime tree

and playground where youngsters can let off steam. Sat in dappled sunshine on a bench nearby was a trio of ‘summer wine’ senior locals no doubt putting the world to rights, whist an old collie dog snoozed alongside. On this unseasonably warm October day, Middleton’s triangular Square looked more like a small Mediterranean plaza. It’s a lovely walk on the lane past Castle Farm where multi-coloured bunting strands of Virginia creeper entirely covered the end wall of a barn. Along the way there were occasional far reaching views through a foreground

of hills toward Stanton and the distant Beeley Moors, but I wanted more elevation and a wider perspective. After passing Lomberdale Hall I went up a footpath through a scattering of specimen trees and beside a cluster of beech, showing off their golden glory before crossing the top road and continuing through fields and stiles to reach Moor Lane. From here I could see Over Haddon stretched out before me with Dark Peak hills on the far horizon. On the eastern side of the Wye, the long sprawl of trees in Manners Wood hid Bakewell Edge beneath but they also blocked any view of Chatsworth in the valley beyond. Walking down Moor Lane to return to Youlgrave is always a treat, following the signs for ‘Quiet Lane’ but on this particular day of blue skies and Indian Summer sunshine, it was pure delight. Down in the valley the holding pond of Youlgrave water looked like a big blue puddle. Founded in the early 19th century to provide the village with clean water, this went on to become Youlgrave Waterworks Limited, a nonprofit making company that continues to extract some 22 million gallons annually from Bleakley Spring, serving 500 local houses and businesses. Still retaining a shop, school and surgery gives residents of Youlgrave a purpose to walk down its main street, but it is also the traditions, customs. clubs and regular social events that preserve such a strong community spirit here, quite unique at a time when most people in towns and cities don’t even know who their neighbours are.
