Winter is the best time of year for planting trees – and pupils at Darley Dale Primary School are now tree-planting experts, having created a new woodland of 140 native trees in their school grounds earlier this month. The woodland – planted with help from Little Green Space, Derbyshire County Council and Derwent Treescapes – will provide a long-lasting, wildlifefriendly outdoor learning environment for pupils. Access to green spaces such as these benefits children’s wellbeing, and the pupils at Darley Dale Primary School have created a lasting legacy that could continue to support wildlife and benefit people for hundreds of years. The new woodland includes oak, rowan and hawthorn trees – supplied by Tansley-based Derwent Treescapes and conservation charity The

Woodland Trust – and was funded through a grant from The Tree Council. It adjoins an existing area of mature trees that are already being used by the children during outdoor learning sessions – Darley Dale Primary is a Forest School, and woodland activities include den building and nature investigations. Parents and staff got involved with the treeplanting too – and one parent helper said she could remember planting trees at the school when she herself attended as a child. Plant a tree If you want to create your own lasting legacy, plant a tree in your garden – now’s the time to do it! Planting trees between November and March is a good idea as roots are dormant during winter, so the tree can cope more easily with being moved. It is possible to plant container-grown trees at

any time of year, but even these are best planted in winter as they’ll need less watering – and so are easier to care for – than if they’re planted in spring or summer. To plant your tree, first make sure that it will have space to grow properly – especially if it’s a large species, such as oak – taking into account the expected spread of the branches in future years. Ensure the tree will not be too close to nearby buildings, fences and other trees. Dig a hole that’s wide enough and deep enough to accommodate the roots, and position the tree in the hole. The tree shouldn’t be planted too deeply – the top surface of the soil should be just above the top of the roots. Refill the hole with soil, filling all air pockets and being careful not to damage the roots. Then firm the soil gently. Some large or top-heavy trees may need to be staked for support, and you may also want to add a tree guard to protect the trunk from hungry rabbits, if these are known to be a problem in your garden. Water well and watch your tree grow! Trees are terrific for wildlife. They create food and habitats for thousands of species – and if you plant a tree now, it could still be standing in a hundred years. If you like the idea of planting a tree, but don’t have the space, why not

invest in an individual tree or grove of trees with award-winning conservation charity Trees for Life (www.treesforlife.org.uk)? Trees will be planted in the Scottish Highlands and are a wonderful way to celebrate a special event or remember a loved one. Snow hares The Peak District and South Pennines are the only areas in England where the enigmatic snow hare – also known as the mountain hare – can be found in any number. Snow hares are found from Scandinavia to eastern Siberia with isolated populations in the Alps, Great Britain and Ireland. They’re native to the Highlands of Scotland but were re-introduced to the Peak District about 200 years ago.

Some of the cast of ‘Once Upon A Time’ A renowned ballet school's show wove a magical spell on its audience when performing locally at the newly refurbished Bakewell Town Hall. 'Once Upon A Time,' performed by the Felicity White School of Dance, enjoyed a run of four performances from 28-30 October under the direction of new principal Philippa Matkin who recently took over from founder Felicity White. Mrs White trained at the Royal Ballet School and set the school up in 1978 after moving to Eyam. Felicity comments, “In the last 37years I have taught hundreds of children, often including several generations of the same family but felt the time was right to hand over to Miss Matkin as she has the drive and energy to keep it going for, dare I say, another 37 years!”

78 students, aged 4-18 years, took part in the show performing a range of ballet, tap, modern dance and musical theatre. Creatures, playing cards and even a Cheshire Cat were on display in the event inspired by popular children's books including 101 Dalmatians, Wizard of Oz, Matilda and Alice in Wonderland. Principal Philippa Matkin, of the Eyam-based dance school, praised the pupils' performance saying: “There was a hum of excitement in the building. My teaching colleagues, the students and I all worked really hard to make the show a success and I feel very proud. The performances were excellent and enjoyed by all.” A raffle held during the shows raised £300 for Macmillan and Cavendish Cancer care in Sheffield, two charities close to the heart of Miss Matkin.

Wednesday 4 November. All the money will go towards new provisions at school to aid children’s learning and curriculum. Head Teacher, Tracy Blackwell said: “Thank you to everyone who came along to enjoy the play and the supper that followed. We all had a very enjoyable and festive evening – it is fantastic to hear how much money has been raised from the generosity of local community members, to enhance the children’s education.” Residents also had the chance to see two displays in church and at school that children have been working on during their studies this term. They’ve put the exhibitions together by researching areas around British Values including Advent, Christianity, New Year’s Eve and the celebration of Queen Elizabeth becoming the longest-reigning British Monarch this year. They’ve also showcased their thoughts and ideas after visiting an inner-city farm and a mosque with Lowfield Primary School friends in Sheffield last month.

SPECIAL MEMORIES AT UPPERTOWN SOCIAL CENTRE ‘The Haley Sisters’, the very popular Jo-Ann and Becky played their special mix of Country, Folk, Blues and Rock at Uppertown Social Centre on Saturday 12th December to a full house. They played Uppertown in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and it was a sell-out every single time, with several regulars missing out on tickets. Becky provides vocals and a powerful rhythm and finger-style guitar. Jo-Ann also sings and is the rocksolid anchor on bass, while Brian dazzles on guitar with his flat picking and slide. The show was a great success but there was another special event on the night to commemorate the lives of two sisters-in-law who had regularly enjoyed evenings at Uppertown Social Centre with their husbands, George Avery and John Cooper. Uppertown Social Centre is a charitable trust providing facilities for the people of Ashover and surrounding districts. The committee had decided in advance that on the night, the lives of Valerie Cooper and Christine Avery, who with their husbands were longtime supporters of the Centre, would be commemorated by a raffle held during the evening. The proceeds of the raffle to be donated to the organisations which gave Val and Chris so much help immediately before they died.

MATLOCK ROTARY CLUB HELPS AQUABOX

YOUR LOCAL, FAMILY BUSINESS YOU CAN RELY ON Peter Kidd, President of Matlock Rotary Club, presents a cheque for £3,000 to Mike Tomlinson, Chair of the Aquabox Trustees, and fellow trustee and President of Wirksworth Rotary Club, Roger Cassidy Last August, Matlock Rotary Club organised the Dovedale Dipper, an annual charity run and walk through the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The event raised a total of £3,000 for charity and this year it was decided by the President of the Club, Peter Kidd, that the charity receiving the money would be Aquabox, who are based in Wirksworth and are run by Wirksworth Rotary Club. Aquabox provides portable water filtration systems for disaster relief to

emergencies throughout the world, whether it be caused by earthquakes, tsunami, floods, war or other cause. Peter Kidd, President of Matlock Rotary Club said, “I am especially pleased to be able to help Aquabox with its funding. I understand that £3,000 equates to 100 Aquaboxes and this is a brilliant way to help people in disaster situations. Aquabox is a terrific piece of kit that enables disaster victims to have clean drinking water from any water source. It is brilliant.”

Highfields School performed its annual Christmas concert on 8th and 9th December, with around twenty acts demonstrating a range of music. The programme included a mix of jazz, pop, classical and traditional music. Students performed vocal, guitar, violin and piano solos and duets as well as in an orchestra, jazz band, clarinet, string, flute and folk groups. And this year a large junior choir was formed of years 7 and 8 students, who performed I see the Light, Hakuna Matata and then joined together with the senior choir for Run by Snow Patrol. The concert ended with a mixed choir made up of students and staff singing All I want for Christmas is you.

The concert was sadly the last that two members of staff, Jim and Wendy Grady, were involved in as they retire to France. They have been responsible for maintaining a high standard of folk music at Highfields for many years. Kris Rowley, head of music at Highfields, said, “I am so impressed with the quality of our acts. And the commitment, discipline and maturity of our students really show when it comes to performance time. Of course we are sad to say farewell to Jim and Wendy Grady, but I’m optimistic at the new talent coming through and confident that music is thriving at Highfields. We’re very pleased with the results and progress we achieve.”

All the Christmas decorations should be taken down and put away on the 6th January and not a day earlier nor a day later – if the old superstitions have been observed, that is. And all who ate a mince pie on each of the 12 days of Christmas can look forward to 12 months of good fortune. The Christmas cycle ends on Twelfth Night, 6th January, a date which as the Feast of the Epiphany commemorates the manifestation of the Christ child to the Three Kings of the Orient. Long after the Gregorian calendar was introduced in 1752, causing much of the population to believe that

they had ‘lost’ 11 days, the 6th January was referred to as the Old Christmas Day, although the title actually belongs to the previous day. Such an important date attracted superstition, particularly as in distant times the 12 days of Christmas were widely associated with the darker side of the supernatural. It was also believed that it had been an act of sacrilege to move such a hallowed date. Farmers had particular reason to object to a change in the calendar – with rents falling due on Christmas Day many of them refused to pay for a year which fell 11 days short. As a result many such transactions were transferred to 6th January – a date that still holds an occasional place on the financial calendar. Over many generations, Derbyshire farmers took the precaution of lighting 12 fires in their fields on 6th January to protect the land from evil influences. Because the womenfolk settled back to such regular tasks as spinning immediately after the festive period, 7th January was known as ‘St Distaff’s Day, partly work and partly play’. The distaff, a spinning tool, also gives name to the ‘distaff’ side of the family tree, meaning the female branch as opposed to the male ‘spear’ branch. January has one more date to look out for, the 25th being St Paul’s Day – formerly regarded as a weather forecast for the coming year: ‘If Paul’s Day be bright and clear, this will be a happy year’.

MATLOCK DERWENT VALLEY LIONS CLUB SHARE PEACE

With all the problems around the world, it is most appropriate that Lions Clubs’ International Peace Poster Competition should have the theme “Share Peace”. Last year, Matlock Derwent Valley Lions Club entered this competition for the first time with only 3 entries, submitted by Anthony Gell School, from which the club could choose a winner. The club’s winning poster then went on to win the District competition. This year competition was extremely popular and we received 61 entries from Anthony Gell, Highfields and Lady Manners schools. Again, Pollyanna Pickering very kindly agreed to judge the submissions and chose an individual winner from each of the schools. Pollyanna said it was really difficult to decide from the excellent standard of all the artists.

Lion President Sheila Emerson presents Oscar Cousins with his certificate and voucher alongside Lion Molly Winder

On Saturday 12 December, a presentation ceremony was held at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock, in the presence of the Mayor of Matlock, Cllr. Steve Flitter. Lion President Sheila Emerson said, “I must thank all the secondary schools for taking part this year and their staff and pupils for being so enthusiastic to promote the theme of the competition. Also, Lion Molly Winder, who organised the project”. The winners were, Oscar Cousins (12) from Anthony Gell School, Katy Woods (13) from Highfields School and Betsy Day (12) from Lady Manners School. Each received a signed certificate and a voucher for £20, to purchase artists materials of their choice. Unfortunately, only Oscar was able to attend the event with his family. The other two winners were present with their prizes at their schools.

offering free first aid lessons and teaching resources to primary and secondary schools in Derbyshire after receiving funding from the Department for Education. The government’s £250,000 Character Education fund helps young people develop traits such as confidence, grit and community spirit. The grant will allow St John Ambulance to first aid train 100,000 young people nationally in life saving skills, empowering them with the knowledge to help family, friends, or someone in the community when they need it the most. Wendy Human, Director of Charitable Initiatives and Training, St John Ambulance, said: ‘We know schools want their pupils to learn first aid but most of them don’t have the resource to teach it – this is the perfect opportunity for them to get life saving skills taught in the classroom. ‘First aid can boost confidence, develop integrity, encourage resilience, and inspire young people to be the difference in their communities. We believe that all pupils should have the chance to learn first aid and develop these skills. Our vision is that no one should suffer for a lack of trained first aiders, and the Character Education grant will help us take a big step in that direction.’ Edward Timpson, Children and Families Minister, Department for Education said: ‘We are extending opportunity to all young people by equipping them, through a high-quality, rigorous curriculum, with the core knowledge and skills most valued by employers. ‘We want young people to have the opportunity to develop a broader range of traits and skills, including first aid, so I’m delighted St John Ambulance are able to deliver training to thousands of young people with our £250,000 character grant.’ The Character Education grant is also being used by the charity to assist with its Big First Aid Lesson school resources – free termly first aid training videos available to schools with a live event in the summer term for schools to tune into. Last year the live event educated 198,000 students in classrooms up and down the country, learning skills such as how to treat an asthma attack or help someone with a severe bleed. Schools are recommended to contact St John Ambulance to find out how they can access the free schools training by calling 0303 003 0103.

Following this was the presentation of reports by Men’s and Ladies’ Captains, Joe Noble and Mavis Holmes. Joe Noble reported that the Club’s donations to charities reached an amazing £3,393.70. It also provided the invaluable help of Bob Straw and Paul in hosting the Bakewell Rotary Club’s Charity Day. Membership has managed to turn the tide with a marginal increase, thanks to the hard work of Chris Allen, membership secretary and also the establishment of the Bakewell Golf Academy by Doug Cousins which allowed the employment of a local pro, Chris Pollard. The committee also plan to enlarge the facilities of the Club to provide more scope for offseason activities and have made an application for a grant to finance these.

A Time for Giving

MATLOCK MUSIC SHOP Year 10 Students Raise An Astonishing £970 GUITAR COMPETITION

Lady Manners School Year 10 students have raised an astonishing £970 for their chosen charity, MIND. The 14 and 15-yearolds held a ‘Wear Your Christmas Jumper to School’ day and a

sponsored dodgeball event – which included all 230 students! The Christmas spirit was evident in both events, and the youngsters were delighted with the amount raised.

The charity was chosen by a vote and MIND, which provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem, was the clear winner. Neil Wallace, Pastoral

Leader for Year 10 said: “The students really enjoyed themselves and took part with fantastic spirit. The atmosphere the Year Group created was extremely positive; we are proud of them.”

There was a great response to the recent word search competition in the Peak Advertiser to win a Tanglewood Crossroads guitar. Tony from Matlock Music

Shop, Dale Road, Matlock is pictured presenting the guitar to lucky winner, Paul Parnis of Wirksworth. Tony thanks everyone who entered the competition.

throughout the three days of the market. All the monies raised, after costs, goes to local good causes and each year several thousand pounds are raised.

Matlock Rotary Club will be back again next year, enjoying being part of the Victorian Christmas Market. Peter Kidd, President of the Club said, “I would

like to thank the public for their great support and thank those who provided help, including Twiggs (for supplying the generator), All Saints Church (for providing tables) and the

Town Council. It has been another great success taking part in the Matlock Victorian Christmas Market and we look forward to returning in 2016.”

Baslow Winter Festival

even though the Christmas tree lights had to be turned on from indoors the festive spirit was lovely. The quiz night on Saturday evening was again the best quiz attendance yet with 92 tickets sold. The craft fair and Santa’s grotto on Sunday were packed, creating a very cosy atmosphere in the village hall. We had some impressive raffle prizes due to the generosity of local businesses and residents and completely sold out of raffle tickets. All in all the weekend went very well and we managed to make a profit. Following a meeting of the Baslow Winter Festival Group we have decided that we should do it all again next year and allocate some of the funds to cover the

November 2015

Baslow held their first Winter Festival on the last weekend of November 2015. Despite initial concerns about support and finance it was a huge success. We had the worst weather possible with torrential rain and high

winds all weekend. Despite this the turnout was amazing and very indicative of the people of Baslow and their community spirit. The weekend began with the church lights switch-on at St Anne’s that has always been extremely popular but

this time the church reported a record attendance. All events on the Saturday went well although the afternoon’s activities had to be brought indoors due to the bad weather. The attendance was brilliant and

costs associated with the Christmas tree (there’s even talk of going for a bigger tree!) We need to thank all of the sponsors, all of the people / businesses that donated raffle prizes, the Parish Council and District Council for their funding help, the Village Hall Committee for donating the use of the Village Hall, all of the performers on the Saturday, the Baslow St Anne’s School PTA for the children’s craft classes and Santa’s Grotto and everyone who turned out and supported us. We look forward to your support again in 2016 and wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Baslow Winter Festival Group

Page 14 – Peak Advertiser 4th January 2016 Snow hares tend to be hard to spot, as they prefer to come out at night, travelling along well-worn paths to find heather and grass to graze upon. During the day they rest in shallow depressions in the ground. And in winter, the snow hare’s fur turns white – meaning that the species is well camouflaged in snow. But if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a snow hare when you’re out walking in the Peak District, Moors for

the Future wants to know. The organisation is hoping to gather information about this special creature – and especially how they are being affected by climate change – through a major citizen science survey. The data collected will be fed into a national database and will then be used to aid conservation. And as snow hares are a UK priority species – they’re threatened and require conservation action – they really do need

The Moors for the Future Partnership, which was formed in 2003, is working to preserve large areas of upland in the Peak District and South Pennines, and has a number of ongoing community science surveys that help raise awareness about this valuable habitat. Involving local communities to gather information in this way is an effective way to collect a large amount of data – and has the added benefit of inspiring people to find out

Darley Dale Primary pupils planting trees snow, these creatures are likely to be affected. Snow hares change their coat colour from brown or grey in the summer to white in the winter. If there’s no snow cover in upland areas – something that is becoming more frequent as our climate warms – and the hares are unable to adapt their

moulting behaviour, they may spend a longer time being far more visible in their environment, making them vulnerable to attack from predators such as foxes, stoats and buzzards. This is expected to lead to a decline in the Peak District’s population of these intriguing animals.

Allwood Kitchens

At Allwood, we are sure that the quality and price of our handmade, solid wood furniture cannot be beaten. A small team of expert craftsmen, led by a national, award-winning designer, work directly with the customer, cutting out all unnecessary overheads and costs, which usually inflate the price. Most customers assume that genuinely handmade, bespoke, real wood furniture of our exceptional quality would simply be too expensive. A recent survey showed that many of the

‘standard chipboard ordinary’ kitchen suppliers, with their glossy brochures, commission based salesmen and huge overheads, were more expensive than Allwood. Why have ‘ordinary’ when you can have the ‘WOW factor’ for the same price or less? For a stunning real wood, genuinely handmade kitchen, built to your own requirements, give us a try. With our no obligation quote / design you might be surprised at what you can afford! 0800 731 7351.

Jane Livingstone through her illustrated talk shares her experiences of exploring the area over the last ten years. The meeting is on Saturday 16th January starting at 7.30pm in the Methodist Hall on the Market Place. Visitors welcome, fee £3.

presented to the boys by Jack his Optician on Alex’s behalf. Unfortunately Jack wasn’t able to see our boys in action due to yet another game being cancelled because of our water-

logged pitch. Our club dates back to 1928 with 140 members but because we don’t own our own pitch it is impossible to receive any grants to improve the

drainage. If we owned a piece of suitable land as a club we would be able to obtain funding to give the players a pitch to play on all season. If any landowners would

like to offer us a piece of land please don’t hesitate to get in touch. U14’s manager Tree Law 07974 960209 treelaw1@gmail.com

START THE NEW YEAR WITH A SMILE

A story went around Bakewell recently of the man who got up one morning and found a note on the vacant pillow beside him, informing him that his wife had decided to elope with So-and-So. Distressed, he climbed into his clothes and went out into the street. A friend, coming along, observed his agitation and

asked, ‘What’s up, Bill?’ Choking with emotion, Bill told him that his wife had gone for ever. ‘Well, well, dunna take on so about it, just go home and let thy emotion have its way. Tha’ll feel miles better when tha’s had a reet good laugh.’ Heard on Lovers’ Walk under the last full moon over Matlock Bath: Jonny to

Ellen, ‘What’d you think it’d mean if I went and bought you a 22-carat real gold ring?’ Ellen – ‘Oh, Jonny, what would it mean?’ Jonny, getting up from the seat – ‘It’d mean I should have to give up the fags, chuck going to the matches, turn teetotal, and have you hanging round me neck for good. Let’s go home.’

Talk in the Winster taproom had turned to the old Belisha beacons and zebra crossings. ‘They were alright enough’ said old George, ‘but what about the bloke who knew you could be fined for loitering on those crossings, made a dash across, dodged two buses, two taxis and a lorry, and dashed his brains out on the beacon.’ ‘Well, he got across, didn’t he?’ asked Jack. ‘Oh arrh – a marble ‘un.’ The retired Chelmorton Captain told the story of his seafaring days and a friend who had a nagging wife. She would insist on accompanying the old mariner on every voyage, much to his own and the crew’s dismay. One day she was taken ill and died when the ship was in mid-ocean. She was given a sea burial but as no iron was available to weight the body, coal was used. As the sad bundle slid into the water, the grieving widower remarked, ‘Ah always were sure of where she’d finally go, but ah never dreamt she’d have to take her own coal wi’ her.’ A Castleton businessman was falling out with his wife. ‘And another thing’, he stormed, ‘I expect when I die my business will go to the devil.’ ‘In that case’, she shouted back, ‘you’ll soon get it back again.’ The old farmer had enjoyed another late night and next morning was duly on the carpet. ‘If it wasn’t for me’, scolded his wife, ‘you’d be the biggest fool in Hartington.’ ‘Admitted’, answered the farmer, ‘but don’t worry, dear, I’m not after your title.’ Old Holmes reckons he has only been to one teetotal function in his life and he didn’t like it. When a waiter came round after the dinner with grapes, Holmes declined: ‘No thanks, I’m not used to taking my liquor in pill form.’ Sam had dreadful toothache and was swearing with pain when he bumped into Mick from Monyash. Said Mick, ‘Why don’t you do what I do when I’ve got bad toothache?’ ‘And what’s that?’ groaned Sam. ‘I goes home to my missus and she hugs me tight and strokes my face till the pain goes away.’ ‘Right, I’ll try it. Is she at home now?’ A Sheffield sportsman came into the Peak for a day’s shooting but had no luck at all. He was on the way back to his car, empty handed, when he passed a farm with a flock of ducks waddling about in an adjoining field. Up he went to the farmer and asked how much he would charge for a shot at the ducks. ‘A couple of quid’, said the farmer. So the sportsman handed over two coins and took two shots at the ducks, killing seven. ‘There’, he grinned,

‘I’m afraid you made a bad bargain.’ ‘Oh, I dunno. It’s not as if they was my ducks.’ Old Joe was dozing in his usual corner in The George, while two customers across the room were arguing about the correct way to pronounce ‘neither’. Sam said it was correct to say ‘neether’ and Bill said ‘nayther’. Not being able to settle it, one of them shouted across to Joe: ‘What do you say, Joe?’ Came the reply: ‘A pint o’ bitter.’ It was old Joe who went home one night last week and was too sozzled to hang up his jacket. He kicked it to one side so nobody would trip over it before the missus had chance to pick it up.

PETER McCARTHY SUITE

OPENS AT WALTON HOSPITAL In Memory of a Much-Missed Nurse

Peter’s family and guests. (Inset) Peter’s wife Jannine and children Ella, aged 11 and Will aged 7 The family of Derbyshire nurse Peter McCarthy were VIP guests at the opening of a new outpatient block at Walton Hospital, Chesterfield, named in his memory. Peter, a community diabetes specialist nurse, died following treatment for leukaemia in March 2014 aged 51, and his friends and colleagues at Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust wanted to create a lasting memorial to him. Peter’s wife Jannine and children Ella, aged 11, and Will, aged 7, from Wirksworth, were the guests of honour at a special ceremony to name the newly refurbished outpatient suite after him. Peter’s mother Maureen

McCarthy from Mickleover, Derby and Jannine’s mother Gillian Watts, now living in Anglesey, as well as Peter’s brother Clive McCarthy and sister-in-law Patricia, were in the VIP party to mark the official renaming of the suite and to celebrate Peter’s dedication to his chosen profession and to the patients in his care. William Jones, chief operating officer with Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Walton Hospital, welcomed Peter’s family and gave them a tour of the facilities before inviting Ella and Will to unveil a plaque in honour of their father. William said: “Everyone who knew Peter remembers how caring and supportive

he was, both to his patients and to his colleagues. He was a gentleman with a gentle nature who is greatly missed. He cared passionately about his work as a nurse and his dedication shone through in the care and consideration he gave to his patients.” Peter McCarthy grew up in Derby and attended John Port School in Etwall. He worked at various hospitals around Derbyshire after qualifying as a nurse in 1989. He subsequently gained his district nursing qualification, with time spent at Kelvingrove Medical Practice in Heanor, before going on to introduce the role of diabetes nurse at Staffa Medical Practice. Later, he worked across north Derbyshire, firstly in a

new role providing diabetes education within primary care, and then with the community diabetes specialist team, visiting patients in their homes or in local GP surgeries, assisting people to manage their diabetes and to live a healthy life with the condition. Peter’s former colleagues and friends from the community diabetes team at Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust were among those who attended the event at Walton Hospital. The new Peter McCarthy Suite includes nine clinical outpatient consultation rooms as well as three larger clinical areas (former ward bays) comprising: a gym, occupational health and group therapy areas.

Set in the peaceful woodland surroundings of Darwin Forest Country Park, Evolution Health and Fitness Centre provides the perfect place to unwind and escape from the demands of everyday life.

TIME TO WRITE

Sales Now On!

Alicia Smedley

Most writers will tell you that the hardest thing about writing is to get started. That blank sheet of paper, that blank screen, can be intimidating, if not downright off-putting. But now, as a new year begins, it is the time to take the plunge: time to begin that project you’ve been thinking about for ages; time to find the time for your own creative talents to flow; time to explore a new world. I have been writing since I was a teenager. Nothing grand, no published novels or Pulitzer prizes, but steady down-to-earth stuff. I have written and edited magazines and booklets for groups and organisations. Sometimes I was paid to do it, sometimes not. I have written for newspapers, and sent poetry to friends, and I even have an unpublished novel or two on the shelf – I am no good at marketing. The thing is, I enjoy writing. I enjoy the challenge of finding the right words to express what I want to say. And those who have read my writing have said they enjoy reading it enough to encourage me to carry on. But I am not a club-able sort of writer. Occasionally I do share with a group of friends, but my muse tends to strike in ways and on topics which don’t necessarily fit and may not be particularly fashionable or acceptable (for examples see www.jeniedwards.com).. A little while ago I got to thinking that now I have a bit more time, I might be useful in encouraging others to find the enjoyment in writing that I have had for so long: perhaps I could help someone get started who can’t find a place or a time in a busy life? One Saturday morning a month dedicated to ‘writing time’ might get you started. Or maybe you’ve got tangled in a plot and would like to talk it over with a neutral person?

Or maybe just having somewhere set aside for writing would help? So it’s experimental... the fourth Saturday morning in the month, 9am-1pm, is booked for you to use at Bakewell Friend’s Meeting House. It’ll be open for the first time on Saturday 23rd January. Contact me beforehand on 01629 636550 or e-mail jeni.edwards69@gmail.com for details. I hope I can help.

PEAK DISTRICT MATRON’S FACE OF FAME!

Peak District matron Melissa Dalton will be popping up a lot over the next few weeks – on posters, billboards, and on screen – as one of the faces of the national NHS Stay Well This Winter campaign. Melissa is matron for urgent care in the minor injury units at Whitworth Hospital, Darley Dale and Buxton Hospital, both run by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust. She was chosen by NHS England to appear in the public campaign. She is one of a handful of nurses – out of nearly 378,000 qualified nursing staff nationally – to get a taste of model life as part of promoting self-help tips for staying healthy during the winter. You can find details of the campaign here:

http://www.nhs.uk/staywell /#. The key themes are: staying warm, eating well and getting a flu jab.

Well done to Melissa for representing @DCHStrust so well as one of the faces of this year’s national winter

campaign. Look out for posters of our @MIUmatron Melissa. Tweet @DCHStrust if you see her!

“Make 2016 your year to remember by improving your health,” says Activ Physiotherapy. Keeping up with New Year’s resolutions can be straining for your body and may lead to unexpected injuries and pain. “Here at Activ Physiotherapy we have a team of therapists with a wealth of experience and knowledge on how to manage, manipulate and eliminate these injuries.” Andrew Okwera, Georgina Hollinrake, Clare Heward and the team specialise in several areas of physiotherapy such as; sports injuries, women’s health, musculoskeletal pain and home advice on improving your health. “We commonly see people who have taken up new hobbies as a spur to improve health such as long gym sessions and long distance running. However, in my experience regular exercise, without the proper preparation, can lead to injuries that otherwise wouldn’t occur. We have a system of preventative rehabilitation or ‘prehab’, as it’s commonly known, that can help prepare a person for exercise and also aid their recovery, thus reducing the risk of an injury. Most people may think this type of therapy is only available to professional sports people. However here at Activ we ensure that it is widely available for all.”

Helen Milton I’m Helen Milton, local mum of two boys under 12. I used my ‘active me time’ when the kids were small to get out in the beautiful Peak District. I got fit and found ‘me’ after the shock of parenthood. Fitness for me is strongly linked to my sense of wellbeing. I am passionate about your ‘active me time’ and about enabling you to enjoy your fitness, tailoring exercise to your needs. Whatever your goal – weight-loss, stress relief, training for an event or simply enjoying the outdoors – I can help you. If you don’t know where to start then get in contact, between my

fitness and cycling qualifications I’m sure I can offer something attractive, different and which concentrates on your needs. I can work with you one-to-one in stunning surroundings to tone and strengthen arms, legs, bums and tums, or in your own home if you prefer. If there are a few of you interested, we can turn it into a group session. I also run salsa-size and fitness classes in Birchover on Tuesday and Friday evenings 6-7pm. The hardest part is picking up the phone – after that we’ll do the rest together. activemetime@uwclub.n et 07957 836151.

Activemetime with Helen Milton for a fresh start to your fitness Discover a new you in 2016! January is traditionally the time when smokers promise to quit the habit. But these days, there’s a better chance of actually keeping that promise. VapeHQ in Matlock has the reason why. Last August, a report by Public Health England, part of the Department of Health, stated that “Ecigarettes are 95% less harmful than normal cigarettes” and that they “help most smokers to quit tobacco altogether.” VapeHQ owners, Scott and Maria, welcomed the news. “We knew that vaping was the tasty alternative to smoking before this announcement,” says Maria, “and now we are officially a serious option for those wanting to quit, or for those who like smoking but want to reduce the toxins in their body.” Vaping is an alternative to smoking that uses flavoured vapour to

replace the usual cigarette chemicals. The e-liquid is vaporised to give the same sensation as smoking a traditional cigarette. You start with a liquid which contains nicotine and then work your way to a liquid which has none. At VapeHQ the e-liquid range caters for all tastes and is UK tested as fit for consumption. From tobacco and fruits, to pink lemonade and key lime cookie, there’s a flavour to suit all tastes. The last words go to Scott. “I urge those who were cautious about vaping to come into our store and just talk to us. We will let you freely try devices and liquids before you buy so that you are completely happy with your purchase. We try to make your first steps into vaping really easy.” 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.

Are you ready to get active? Want to change your body shape and need help to start? I want to help you get in shape and achieve your fitness goals, whatever they are. Your ‘active me time’ is your therapy – boosting your wellbeing and self-confidence. Let’s get started – from walking to jiggling to jogging to FIT! We’ll use the green gym that is the Peak District to tone and strengthen the whole body – no gyms, no shouting. Available for one-to-one sessions outdoors (or in your own home) – your choice. £25 per hour. Or if there are a few of you for an outdoor fitness session while the kids are at Nursery/School then it’s only £5/person (minimum 5 people). I’m also qualified to guide bike rides on road and off-road – looking after routes, mechanical issues and maximising your enjoyment. Monthly group rides, £10 per person for 2-2½ hrs with starting points around the Peak District. Currently on Monday or Friday mornings. Contact me for details. The hardest bit is picking up the phone – Let’s Do It! – This is your year – Discover You

NEWHOLME HOSPITAL WARD EARNS BADGE OF QUALITY

Riverside ward at Newholme Hospital, Bakewell has achieved a silver dignity award for its care of older people with mental health problems. The dignity campaign, a partnership between the NHS and Derbyshire County Council, recognises healthcare teams who treat patients with dignity and respect by ensuring services are especially geared for them and that staff understand their needs. Silver dignity award

assessor Chris Whittaker said: “As an outsider walking into Riverside ward for the very first time, I can only say that I would have no problems with any members of my family being admitted there and I would be confident that the care they provide is of the highest quality and has dignity and respect at its heart.” To achieve its silver dignity award Riverside ward was inspected and assessors talked to families

MATLOCK ANTIQUES AND COLLECTABLES SOCIETY DECEMBER MEETING

The meeting was opened by Elsie Reddish, the chairman who we were all pleased to see. The talk by a member was entitled ‘Collecting almost A to Z’ and what a collection it is! She started with a ‘weather cat’ with a long tail she had inherited from her grandmother. The cat’s tail was always correct, if it is wet it is raining, if it is moving it is windy, if it is stiff it is freezing, and if it falls off there’s been an earthquake. Many of the items are

inherited, almost all are displayed in her very old house including 12 brass boots, 84 pieces of green glass, crinoline ladies bought as a child for 6d each, and a box of long hatpins ‘useful for saucy men’. She had items from A to Zaffra ground up to colour blue pottery. The next open meeting is February 12th 2016 at 7.30pm at the Imperial Rooms; the talk is entitled ‘Childhood Memorabilia’ by John Morgan

Have you got any broken or unwanted electricals? Dig them out and take them to your local household waste recycling centre for your chance to win one of fifteen £100 cash prizes. From hair-dryers to hedge-trimmers and toasters to TVs, there’s a range of household appliances you can take to Derbyshire County Council’s recycling centres. And from 2nd January, you can exchange them for a golden ticket – which means you could be quids in. Simply pick up your golden ticket from a member of staff at any of the county council’s nine recycling centres, type in your unique ticket number online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/ electric and find out if you’re an instant winner. The more items you recycle, the more tickets you’ll get. Derbyshire County Council’s Deputy Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure Councillor Paul Dunn said: “We throw away more than a quarter of the electrical items we buy in the UK instead of recycling them. In Derbyshire, this contributes to the £20 million cost of dealing with waste which isn’t recycled each year – money which could be better spent on vital services at a time when councils are getting less money from central government. “If every household in Derbyshire recycled just one electrical item it would mean more than 333,000 appliances being put to good use, saving precious metals and other valuable materials they contain as well as saving council taxpayers’ cash. So dust down those old or unused items and take them to your local

recycling centre from 2nd January for your chance to win £100.” The competition and campaign is being funded by Advantage Waste Brokers – the contractor which works on behalf of the county council to collect and recycle electrical items taken to its recycling centres. Electrical goods can be exchanged for a golden ticket at the following recycling centres in our area: •Ashbourne (Mayfield Road) •Buxton (Waterswallows Road) •Northwood (Matlock) All electrical appliances are accepted including: •fairy lights •coffee makers •electric toothbrushes •game consoles •irons •kettles •lamps •laptops and tablets •phones •power tools •printers •radios •sat navs •slow cookers •straighteners and hairdryers •washers •dryers •fridges •freezers •fridge-freezers •PCs •Microwaves

The final meeting of 2015 was held by the Forum Club on Tuesday 15 December. This was the Club’s Xmas Party to which members’ ladies were invited. The meeting took place in an appropriately festive atmosphere aided by the excellent Christmas decorations furnished by the Edgefold Club and an equally appropriate programme which centred on a presentation by Stephen Coates entitled “Charles Dickens Readings”. Mr. Coates, elegantly dressed and wearing a top hat, appeared as Dickens himself and, aided by additional information provided Mr. Coates, gave some autobiographical details of his life and read quotations from several of his best known writings, not forgetting, of course, those relating to Christmas which were very familiar to his audience. Sherry and mince pies followed by a raffle rounded off the occasion. A vote of thanks to the speaker was proposed by Chairman. Frank Beesley. Members are reminded that the Club meets next on Tuesday 12th January 2016 when the speaker will be Mr. Keith Talbot whose subject will be “Adelaide Part 2”. As usual, visitors will be welcome to a “taster visit” to this and any other meetings which are held weekly at the Edgefold Club commencing with tea and biscuits at 10am.

THE MAN ON THE WALKWAY

In the twilight years of the twentieth century it was decided by many nations and communities that some worthy project should be undertaken to mark the approaching new millennium. Indeed, many people thought that the advent of the year 2000 was of such important historical, religious and social significance that it could not come and go without a great deal of fuss being made about it. One such town who decided to mark the occasion with a notable project was New Mills in the north-west region of Derbyshire. After much discussion they decided to construct a “Millennium Walkway” which would allow the Torrs gritstone gorge to be made passable to walkers. After diligent planning and ingenious engineering the walkway was completed in 1999 and was more than ready to welcome in the second millennium. Stan Hobbes, a widower and retired sweet factory worker, was initially against the project but after ten years of taking his morning constitutional across the impressive walkway in all the four seasons of the year he had changed his mind. At six feet tall and still with a full head of hair, even though it was all grey, he proudly and happily walked across the structure every day. As is the way with many older citizens; first cursing a new invention or change of method, which they think is the preserve of the young, so much so that they appear to be hardened misoneists. However, after a few rebellious years they finally succumb to the charms of the new-fangled device, building, method or whatever and begin to embrace it. Yes, Stan accepted that the walkway project had been a good idea after all and no more so than on one particular early winter cold but stimulating morning as he stood in the middle of the walkway and watched a heron, perched on a stone on the edge of the fast flowing river Goyt below him, waiting patiently for a fish to catch. The last few months had been very stressful and traumatic for him and he cherished the solace that his early morning outings across the walkway gave him, for Stan had been in a permanent state of despondency since the day he received the results of all the medical tests that had been carried out on him. His general practitioner had told him, in as positive way as possible, that he was in the early stages ofAlzheimer’s and had reassured him that new drugs were available that could arrest the development of the disease and that he should not go away from the surgery completely down at heart. Looking again at the regal and ever patient heron, the words “completely down at heart” echoed in his mind. If anything, he reflected, he had been absolutely down at heart during the past six months and felt himself denuded of all hope. Kicking away the fallen autumn leaves in front of him, that resembled giant cornflakes due to the previous night’s keen frost, he dwelled on the forthcoming Christmas. It might, he ruminated, be the last Christmas he would experience in any cognizance of the fact that it was that time of the year that Christians celebrated the birth of Christ. Indeed, in the future would he be in cognizance of anything? The changing seasons of the year had always been appreciated and loved by him but would they too, become meaningless to the man he would soon become. As he was wallowing in his self-pity he suddenly became aware of a movement in the derelict Torr Vale Mill that stood directly opposite the walkway. He thought he saw a man, a very old man, darting from one window to the next and staring directly

By Leslie Oldfield

and accusingly at him. The man had protruding eyes and grey stubble and seemed to be in a very bemused state. Stan was aghast at what he saw and could not comprehend what was happening for he knew the window where the man was looking at him had no floor under it where an individual could stand and look out. Indeed, the mill, at that particular section, was a hollowed out shell and the floors of the building had collapsed decades ago. Either, he thought, he was looking at the ghost of an old mill worker or his Alzheimer’s was beginning to kick in and he was at a loss to decide which one it was. Hoping and praying that it was, actually, a ghost that he was seeing he playfully surmised that it could be the restless spirit of a Victorian weaver who, after being too old to work at the mill anymore, had been forced to enter the local workhouse. He indulged in his musings further and felt that it was probably a man who had had no relatives who would look after him and, after finishing work, he had no means or savings to avoid him seeking the dubious charms of the workhouse. People mistakenly think, Stan thought, that the horrid workhouses of yesteryear were full of feckless and idle fellows and women of easy virtue but the truth of the matter was that they were full of old men and women who, like knackered horses, were not fit for work anymore. He remembered reading Jack London’s, “People of the Abyss”, as a young man and recalled his description of the sad and decrepit old people who inhabited those awful places. In those days, he further reflected, old age was something to be feared by the working class; there was no old age pension until 1909 and anybody with no money was a hostage to fate. Yes, he sympathised with the apparition and could very much understand why he looked so disconsolate and miserable. It, indeed, must have been terrible to have been old and poor in those “good old days” he sarcastically remarked to himself. But was he not in a similar situation to that tragic ghost who was ogling him? True, he had a good pension and had no money worries and a nice home to live in but what good were these to him if his condition drastically worsened. He had no relatives to care for him or, more correctly, wanted to care for him and although he would not have to dread the workhouse he was not at all that happy about having to enter its modern day equivalent: the residential care home. Disappearing as mysteriously as he had appeared, the ghost of the old mill worker could no longer be seen by Stan and he continued with his walk after he had satisfactorily noted that the watchful heron had finally managed to catch a fish. That evening after he had listened to an episode of “The Archers” on the radio he poured himself a glass of German beer and sat back in his favourite leather armchair and took stock of his situation and what he had seen, or thought he had seen, on the walkway that particular morning. He thought it was strange how old age affected

people in different ways and saw it as unfair that some people with active and alert brains suffer terrible physical deterioration and some older people who are physically fit and in good shape, like himself, suffer terrible mental deterioration. Looking at the picture of his dead wife, Dorothy, on the mantelpiece he pondered whether the old man on the walkway had been a widower as well. Furthermore, did he not have any sons or daughters who were prepared to look after him? Is that why he looked so pitiful and despairing? In thinking about the mysterious man in the mill he considered he was not in such a different situation than him. Sure enough, he had a son, David, an engineering graduate, who did not live that far away in Sale, South Manchester. But he could not see his son’s wife and his daughter in law, Susan, a maths teacher at a community school in Cheshire, allowing his son to give him a home in their household. Yes, he thought, there wasn’t that much difference for his future than there had been for the old man on the walkway in the past. After taking another sip of beer he grinned and spoke aloud, “Plus ca Change”, and started to remember old friends of his who had died over the preceding years. Like many people, he had almost felt a sense of invulnerability and superiority that he had managed to live to a good age whilst others he had known had died young or comparatively young. Now, with the knowledge that he was a sufferer of Alzheimer’s, that sense of arrogance had disappeared; he considered that maybe his old friends, who had died quickly and unknowingly, might have been the lucky ones after all. Fear of the unknown is one of the worst fears that men and women can have and there is nothing more unknown than what a person thinks and feels when he enters the latter stages of the accursed disease that he had been recently diagnosed with. True, physicians could see the outward signs but they could only speculate about what the victims actually experienced. Thinking of his beloved dead wife, he felt happy that she would not be there to witness his illness develop and he felt proud of himself that he had not taken up with another woman since she had passed away. As a practising Christian he had always thought it a paradox that his church had allowed widowers and widows to re-marry in church. Surely, if there was life after death there would be embarrassing situations in heaven when the bereaved spouse, when he or she died, had to explain to his wife or husband about the other partner he had promised to honour and obey. It was a conundrum and he could not reason it out and he was glad that it was puzzle he would not get involved with when he died. Before retiring to bed, Stan made his customary look through his front room window to check on the state of things outside and noted, even though it was not yet December, that one of his neighbours across the street had put a Christmas tree up in his window which was duly glistening with blue lights. Stan, on seeing this, shook

his head and pined for the time when people only put up their decorations a week or two before Christmas. The next morning saw another severe frost and Stan wondered whether if it was a wise thing to take his usual morning stroll along the Torrs. However, after having his usual breakfast of toast and marmalade washed down with a cup of Darjeeling tea he cast off any worries of slipping or catching a cold and made ready to go on his ritual, daily walk. He was also curious to see if he would see another glimpse of the pitiful old man at the mill again. Quickly descending the steps that led to the gorge, he headed straight towards the Millennium Walkway and when he was halfway across he scanned the derelict mill intently to see if he could see any sign of the old man’s ghost. Yet, although he looked at every one of the Torr Vale Mill’s hollowed windows he could find no trace of him. Perhaps, he thought, it was a chance sighting of the spectre he had seen yesterday and it might be that he would probably never see him again. All of a sudden, he became aware of a voice on the walkway and he immediately turned away from looking at the mill and was astonished to see the old man standing about thirty yards ahead of him on the structure. Instantly, he became concerned and felt his heart thumping away under his overcoat. He wasn’t sure whether to turn back the way he had come and go back home or bravely advance to get a closer look at the disturbing apparition. He heard what resembled a moaning sound and decided to face his fears and walk in the direction of the old man who was staring directly at him with a vacant expression. As he approached the ghost he became painfully aware of just how ugly, decrepit and repulsive the old man was and noticed that he was dripping saliva from his lower lip and had deep creases all over his countenance. Moreover, his pallor was a sickly yellow which reminded Stan of the colour of an old and rotten banana and when he was less than ten yards from the man he was shocked to see that the spectre had started to walk towards him and became very nervous about what would happen. When the ghost was within six feet of him a very disturbing thought crossed Stan’s mind; was this really a spectre or was it a “prevoyance enfantine” of what he would become, due to his affliction, in five or ten years’ time. At this thought a searing pain crossed his chest and he found himself having difficulty in breathing and then he felt his legs go weak and he lost consciousness has he crashed to the floor of the walkway. Three weeks later a middle aged, married couple walking their dog along the Torrs gorge picked up an errant newspaper that had been blown into their path by a strong wind. The woman picked it up and immediately recognised the picture on the front page of it as the distinguished and friendly old man who, until recently, they had regularly seen on their walks in the gorge. She passed the paper to her husband and he read aloud what was printed under the picture of the man: “It has been concluded by the local police, after detailed enquiries and a post mortem that Stan Hobbes, aged 74, who was found dead on the Millennium walkway on the morning of November 29th, died from natural causes. At first the police thought that his death was suspicious and an investigation had been launched. However, a police spokesperson confirmed yesterday that no further enquiries would be made and Mr Hobbes’ body could be released for burial.”

OLD ROAD, DARLEY DALE, MATLOCK, DERBYSHIRE, DE4 2ER Children from Hartington have visited their partner school in Sheffield as part of studies into city and countryside cultures and differences. Pupils from Hartington C of E Primary School went to Lowfield Primary School on Tuesday 17th November to participate in shared activities including a visit to a Mosque and an inner-city farm. This event came after Sheffield youngsters visited the Derbyshire Dales school back in July where they investigated life within a rural community, discovering more about village landmarks including St Giles Church, the Market Place, Charles Cotton Hotel and the Duck Pond. Youngsters went to the Sheffield Islamic Centre Madina Masjid Trust where they were given a tour of the Mosque and learnt more about how Muslim people pray. Children and staff had to take their shoes off as they entered the Mosque and their guide explained the importance and relevance of why Muslim people cleanse before they go to pray. They were shown the wash rooms, prayer areas and the library and learnt more about the Quran and how children start to study the religious text of Islam from a young age. Hartington pupil Jacob Blackwell, 9, said: “It was interesting to see the Mosque and stunning to learn more about what Muslim people do when they pray and how they worship Allah.” Teaching Assistant, Judith Flower added: “The Mosque tour was such a great experience, for both staff and the children! We learnt so much about the religious views of Muslim people, how and where they pray and the contents of the Quran. “The children from Hartington and Lowfield all got on so well and it was fantastic to see them asking questions to develop their learning. As Hartington is a

Church School with a strong Christian ethos, it is fantastic that pupils are able to develop their learning about other great world faiths.” During the afternoon, pupils visited an inner-city farm and Hartington youngsters chatted to their friends about how farming differs in their rural village compared to in Sheffield. Josh Wright, 9, commented: “We looked at lots of different animals. First we looked at some pigs and there was a female pig called Ethel and she had lots of other friends. They were a rare breed of pig called Large Blacks. Next we went to the sheep, cows, and a horse called Blaze. Then my group went to look at the small animals and I held a guinea pig called Mona-Lisa. I really enjoyed teaching my friends about the sheep and naming all the different breeds” Lowfield School Council Co-ordinator and Year 3 Teacher, Richard Green said: “The Lowfield children were excited to host a reciprocal visit and were proud to be chosen as school ambassadors. The trip to the Mosque and the inner city farm gave the Hartington children an understanding of the social and cultural activities that our children undertake. The day was a fantastic opportunity to bring two differing communities together again and strengthen the bonds between the schools. The staff and children from both schools thoroughly enjoyed their day together and will continue to highlight and celebrate our similarities and common values.” Hartington children have used information that they learnt during their visit to create a British Values display for St Giles Church in their village. This will also include facts about Advent, Christianity, New Years Eve and the celebration of Queen Elizabeth becoming the longest-reigning British Monarch this year.

The village of Stanton-inPeak is an architectural showcase of stone built cottages and h o u s e s constructed of locally quarried sandstone, most dating back over the last couple of centuries. Handsome properties and high walls line a steep road leading up to Stanton Moor, flanking the privately positioned Stanton Hall which is a mixture of styles. Although the main entrance was built in 1799, parts of the hall reputedly date from the 16th century. It was built for William Bache whose ancestors the Foljambes and Plumptons had held the estate since the 15th century. For many years Stanton has been the home of the Davie-Thornhill family. I began my walk at the Church which is dedicated to the Holy Trinity and was originally constructed as a private chapel in 1838. Just above here I turned along Coach Lane, following the signpost for Pilhough, Congreave and Rowsley. From this elevated road there were fabulous far reaching views of distant hills as well as riverside meadows down in the valley below that surround the meandering River Wye. As my eye followed the valley north I could clearly see Haddon Hall in all its medieval glory and a glimpse of Bakewell beyond. My plan for this issue was another winter wander taking advantage of solid surfaces to avoid mud as much as possible, which I almost achieved! Beighton Houses have a glorious setting on the edge of the woods and the fringe of Stanton Moor. As I followed the road beyond I could see giant spoil heaps hidden by trees, reminders that this whole hillside has long been exploited for its minerals and stone. I also passed an old walled enclosure with stone bench obviously designed for people passing by to rest and enjoy the wondrous views. However on this murky wet day I somehow didn’t fancy a cold damp backside so I continued on to Pilhough which is made up of a cluster of cottages and a crossroads. This tiny hamlet is situated above Peak Tor, an unmistakeable tree-topped mound that appears from a distance like a giant pin cushion. This

WINTER SERVICES LAWNMOWERS & LAWNTRACTORS ANY MAKE, ANY SIZE earthwork with defensive ditch is thought to date back to the Anglo Danish period. My route now was to head down the single track road to Congreave, an even smaller hamlet that appears to consist of just a couple of farms, a lodge by the river and Stanton Old Hall dating from 1667. Deep hedgerows lined my route which descended steeply to riverside meadows below. Deep beneath here are the flooded passageways of Mill Close Mine, said to have been one of the most important lead mines in the country before its closure in the 1930s. It was the last official lead mine to be worked in Derbyshire but

Lathkill combine at Alport is actually called the River Dakin. After a quiet amble that had taken me back in time I now had to return to reality and cross traffic on the main road to follow a pavement as far as Haddon Hall. It was an interesting experience as vehicles whizzed past me but thankfully it did not last long. After about half a mile I crossed back over the road to follow a track beside Haddon Hall car park where naked Christmas trees from the Haddon Estates were lined up for sale. No doubt they would soon find themselves dressed to impress in glitzy ball gowns of tinsel and baubles for the best party of the year! I ascended to Haddon

lead vein. Somewhere deep down beneath my feet lay the Thornhill Sough, a manmade water channel driven through solid limestone which would have drained mines hereabouts until 1851 when they were finally abandoned due to flooding. In 1791 Bache Thornhill had given permission for this sough to join up with the Hillcarr Sough from Alport that drained into the Derwent at Darley Dale. At 6,100 yards in length it was Derbyshire’s longest. My plan for an easygoing walk on a good surface now turned sour as I had to trudge through fields and the remains of an old miners’ path lined with ancient hawthorns, where cattle had churned up the

during its existence nearly half a million tonnes of ore were extracted from its various levels until flooding made it impossible to continue. After passing the attractive Lathkill lodge I went over a humpback bridge where a strong force of water was rushing past to unite with the Wye near Fillyford Bridge beyond.

Fields and thankfully returned to peace, quiet and tranquillity. A fingerpost sign by a stile on my left pointed the way I should go to return to Stanton. Initially this led me through an area of regenerated plantation surrounding the huge water-filled excavation that many will remember as being Shining Bank Quarry. A deep turquoise lagoon surrounded by limestone cliffs around this massive hole in the hillside is slowly becoming a sanctuary for nesting birds and a haven for wildlife, wild flowers and insects. A steep track led down to Hawley’s Bridge and junction of roads where I crossed and began to make my way towards a quaint little cottage, possibly once the home of the river warden or gamekeeper. Just after the bridge I turned left up a footpath and climbed a flight of steps through a band of trees where I disturbed a buzzard that took flight, wings noisily flapping as it let out a cry of disgust at my having invaded its territory. In woodland and fields hereabouts are the remains of spoil heaps, shafts and workings from lead mining. Kirkmeadow Shaft with its metal cap drops down to what was the Amos Cross

rich black soil to make deep patches of gloop. Thankfully a little stream of surface water was running down beside the road back up to the village, which I paddled in to clean my boots. A high stone wall surrounds the Stanton Estates deer park. Unlike Haddon or Chatsworth that have tapped into the tourism market, Stanton has managed to avoid commercialisation, remaining strictly private and a family home. The door to the Flying Childers was ajar, enticing me to enter. This delightful and traditional village pub is reputedly named after an early 18th-century Derby winner trained by Sir Hugh Childers and owned by the 4th Duke of Devonshire. Above the door I could clearly make out the WPT monogram to William Pole Thornhill that can be seen on various properties around the village. Sally Mosley www.sallymosley.co.uk
