The 183rd Bakewell Show is having a special Equestrian Day on Tuesday, 6th August, a day before the 2 day show officially starts. This popular event attracts thousands of visitors each year

Down Memory Lane… The Upper Derwent Valley and High Peak Moorlands

Joe Rowarth was 81 years old when we put some of his colourful memories to paper in 1997. Born to be a sheep farmer like his father and grandfather before him, Joe loved and worked on the High Peak moorlands all his life. Grandfather Isaac Rowarth had been a sheep farmer/publican in the days when most country innkeepers needed more than one string to their bow and he kept the Snake Inn at Hope Woodlands for 51 years. Twelve children were born to Isaac and his wife, beginning with the birth on her 19th birthday of the first of three sets of twins, all of whom grew up to be over six feet tall.

The Snake Inn lay on the Duke of Devonshire’s estate and maintained strong links with the farming community. Twice a year, on the Quarter Days of 25 March and 29 September, the Duke’s agent would turn up at the Snake Inn on horseback to collect rent from the tenant farmers. Free drinks and dinner were laid on as extra incentive for a man to turn up and pay his dues. The Snake also hosted the Shepherds’ Society annual dinner and sheep exchange. Throughout the year stray sheep would have been penned up in a nearby croft to await the exchanges, there to await reclamation by their owners

in exchange for a small fee. Isaac’s son Ben took over Padley Manor Farm and used Padley Chapel, long before its restoration in honour of the Catholic martyrs, as a cowshed. His brother Thomas was a founder member of Derbyshire Gritstone Sheep Breeders Association and became a tenant of the Fox House Inn. In due course Thomas added a bull and stallion to his stock, the objects of clandestine affections towards a number of local cows and mares, brought to visit under cover of darkness by their crafty owners. Destined to be submerged Joe Rowarth was born at Fox House in 1916 and like his two brothers was to become a pupil at Derwent Public Elementary School, under its headmistress and just one teacher. The school was destined to be submerged along with the rest of Derwent village under Ladybower reservoir. Derwent was a close-knit community with a Catholic church and associated school, an Anglican church, a sawmill operated by ‘Dusty’ Thorpe but no pubs and only the post office to serve as a small shop. The

only public transport was a twice-weekly motorised char-a-banc operated by Gerald Wells of Castleton. Sunday papers were provided by the Misses Jan and Jessie Dakin from a small general shop built of corrugated sheeting at Ashopton. The papers were delivered around the isolated farms by a Mr Townsend, a source of wonder to his customers as he was completely blind. Another admirably independent character was Miss Cotterill, a piano teacher who lived in Ginnett Continued on Page 11

Egg and Spoon, Sack Race and- that old favouritethe Obstacle Race! The children then went on to give demonstrations of Javelin, Shot-Put and a Marathon around the

school field. Pre-school aged children were also included in their own races. Stickers and trophies were presented by Hope Wakes Queen Jasmine Eade.

Twistin’ Tots, the local music group for under 5s, is again running some free events over the summer holidays to save parents money and raise cash for two worthy causes at the same time. Parents and children are invited to attend the free 60 minute music session at Hall Leys Park Matlock (nr the bandstand) on Wednesday 7 August, starting at 11am. Bring your own picnic and rug and stay for a chat and a play following the session. Sessions are primarily aimed at the 0-5 age range, but older siblings are welcome to come along. Although sessions are free, Twistin’ Tots is aiming to raise money for Rainbows, the East Midlands Children’s Hospice for children under 16 who are terminally ill and Turnditch CE Primary School; there will be an optional donation bucket at each event. Despite downpours at last year’s Matlock picnic, generous Matlock residents donated over £100, and since their inception two years ago, the picnics have raised a whopping £600 for three local organisations. Jacqui Davis, Twistin’ Tots’ leader, commented, “We all had a great time at last year’s picnics – the people of Matlock were brilliant and a heavy downpour didn’t dampen spirits – everyone donned their coats and put up their brollies and just carried on! I had over 60 families attending the Matlock picnic and as parents have been badgering me all year to run the events again, I am expecting an even bigger crowd this year. A free event is always welcome! Hopefully the weather will keep fine this year so we can raise even more money for charity. ” Parents are welcome to attend any number of the picnics and all start at 11am. You do not need to book, you just turn up. All picnics are weather permitting, so if it’s raining, please check the Twistin’ Tots Facebook page or ring Jacqui on 07977 578359 to check if the event is running. Twistin’ Tots classes aim to promote learning, coordination and movement in young children. Most use simple actions that children can join in with and there are also a variety of props used to assist children’s learning development and motor skills. Classes are suitable from birth to aged five. Classes run in term time in Matlock from 10 – 11am on Wednesdays at the Imperial Rooms, Imperial Rd, Matlock and classes will recommence after the summer break on Wednesday 11 September.

BUXTON CARNIVAL FLOAT FOR CHELMORTON VILLAGE ~ ELVIS RETURNS The small village of Chelmorton has gained a reputation for traditional farming floats in the Buxton carnival. David Bagshaw organised a smart red farm tractor, John Gold provided square bales of straw and Paul Bagshaw organised a brand new loading trailer. Villagers stacked bales to perfection. A big sound boomed out the theme and the job was ‘a good un’. The theme was Elvis and the boom was to the beat of ‘Hound Dog’ and ‘Jailhouse Rock’. Young and old together in white shirts and flared trousers sang along to the King and enjoyed the midday heat. Buxton town was packed for the fun of the fair, well boards dressed and carnival queens in procession. The farm trailer of Chelmorton took end of parade position and delivered the grand finale of music, family and fun.

Froggatt Show SATURDAY 24th AUGUST

Preparations are well advanced for the 68th annual show at Froggatt which will be held in the Stoke Lane field (S32 3ZA) on Saturday 24 August. It will run from 2pm to 5.15pm and car parking is free for visitors. There are 192 classes available for entry and over 180 of these will be staged in the main marquee. As ever, there will be keen competition in the sections covering flowers, fruit and vegetables whilst the domestic section will feature classes covering bread, cakes, pastries and preserves. Floral art classes will reflect the talents of local flower arrangers. Wine makers will have been busy in recent months and exhibits in the handicrafts sections are always greatly admired. The Floral Art section will include a “Ruby Extravaganza” class, sponsored by Baslow Flower Circle, the title being chosen to reflect their own 40th anniversary later this year, Derwent Flower Club sponsor “Let’s Celebrate” in recognition of their Golden Anniversary. The children are well catered for too, with novel classes that include a decorated hen’s egg (hard boiled, of course!), painting, drawing and a collage, amongst others. Outside the marquee, riders and ponies will be put through their paces in the show ring by Judge Alison Lingard. The fun end of this equestrian section will include gymkhana games and mounted fancy dress. Hathersage Brass Band will be playing during the afternoon. Numerous side stalls will be selling their wares. Classic cars and stationary steam engines always delight. A Children’s Entertainer will be holding regular shows. Add on the ever popular tea and home-made cakes from the refreshments tent and there has to be something for everyone to enjoy. The show awards include a number of prestigious trophies, which raises the level of competition considerably, and it finishes with a draw for raffle prices and a highly entertaining auction of donated produce. New exhibitors are most welcome and a call to secretary Carole Lloyd (01433 630672) will reserve you a copy of the schedule. Entry forms must be received by Wednesday 21st August (details in the schedule). Exhibiting or visiting, you are assured a warm welcome at a traditional village show FROGGATT SHOW. Kate Barnacle

MIXED FORTUNES FOR BAKEWELL CRICKET CLUB In recent weeks Bakewell Cricket Club has suffered the ignominy of crushing defeats whilst also basking in the glory of one of its most resounding victories ever in Division 2 of the Yorkshire & Derbyshire Cricket League. The away game at Parkhead saw the Club fight hard to gain victory by dismissing the home side for 160 with young Jack Madin excelling with bowling figures of 6-47 and then reaching 161- 7 with Matt Baker-Pearce scoring a resilient 33 not out. This was followed by a fall from grace against near neighbours, Baslow, in a match sponsored by Peachtree Gardening. Bakewell struggled to reach a total of 122, thanks mainly to a fighting 41 from Roy Peach. Baslow lost just 5 wickets in overtaking this well below par score. As if one defeat against local rivals was not enough to stomach, Bakewell faltered in a home match sponsored by Diamond Court Dental Practice when Ashford took the honours. Despite 47 from Lee Tann, Bakewell only managed a total of 142, which the visitors overtook with only 4 wickets down, Dave Stewart leading the way with 62. A much needed victory was then achieved against Sheffield University Staff in a game sponsored by Midco. Indeed a more convincing win it would be difficult to imagine. Bakewell racked up an imposing total of 218-8 with fine contributions from Lee Tann (63), Jeff Madin (44), Paul Fearn(43) and Richard Reed(37 not out). The visitors were then skittled out for just 43 runs with Paul Fearn rounding off a fine all-round performance by taking 6-22. Unfortunately, success soon turned to failure in the return fixture at Ashford, in a match sponsored by Sheldon Garage, when the home side romped to a convincing win. Although being bowled out for 152, with Mick Clarke taking 3-22, they restricted Bakewell to a total of just 76 with Joe Muir taking 4-23.

of Matlock, by retiring President Peter Wigglesworth, on Monday 1st July 2013, at the Temple Hotel, Matlock Bath. Cynthia becomes the first lady President of Matlock Rotary in the 86 years that the club has been established in the town and marks the major contributions that ladies make to the Rotary International movement. During her inaugural speech Cynthia said that she was honoured to be the first lady President, thanked club members for the support given to her and hoped that everyone would have a year of fun with both the Clubs social and fund raising events. In outlining her programme for the forthcoming year, President Cynthia hopes that the focus of the club will continue be based on charities and other activities in the local community. Last year, under the guidance of President Peter, the club supported a number of local charities, Greenaway Workshops, Derby Mountain Rescue, Matlock First Responders and Rainbows Hospice. Three local students are to be awarded bursaries to help with their University education and dictionaries were donated to local primary school students. Cementing the clubs relationship with Highfield School, prizes were awarded to two Highfields students in recognition of their excellent work in the community. The club will be organising in conjunction

with other local clubs a Vintage Car Rally and Craft Fair on the 28th July at Ashover. Come along and enjoy a great day out either as an entrant or as a spectator. The 11th Dovedale Dipper Challenge is to be held on the 4th August. Fancy a marathon length or a shorter 15 mile challenge?

If so enter now through our web site. At all our events there will be Rotarians available who will be happy to chat if you want to know some more about Rotary and are interested in joining us. For details of what we do and a list of our events, visit us on

MATLOCK LUNCHEON CLUB JULY 2013 The ladies of Matlock Ward speaking on the subject Luncheon Club met at the unusually early hour of 10.30am on July 11th. for coffee before their Annual General Meeting which was followed by lunch and the speaker.Membership of the club stands at 116 with 23 on the waiting list. A change in the constitution to raise the number of committee members to 10 in view of the increased membership was passed unanimously and two new committee members Susan Jeff and Annie Hall were duly elected. Eileen Hall is the new chairman with Janet Pidgeon as vice chairman and Susan Greatorex and Betty Littlewood remaining as secretary and treasurer. As the Annual dinner in March had been badly affected by the weather, it was proposed to have this event in April in future. The staff at the Golf Club were thanked for their excellent service and presented with tokens of the Club's gratitude. After a short break an excellent lunch, appropriate for the hot weather was enjoyed and followed by Joan

'Life begins at 50'. She entertained us with numerous humorous statistics about older women: figures for cosmetic surgery and oldest mothers. She compared youth chasers and age embracers and gave advice for continuing to look youthful, which included an 18th century practice of spreading wet cow dung on the skin to keep the wrinkles at bay. Other good advice included eating spinach and sleeping on your back. Finally she told us about her own life changes when she gave up teaching after 32 years to open a B & B which led to travel and new friends. Then she and her husband ran a tea shop and gallery in Ashbourne and finally she worked hard and took the seven exams needed to become a Derbyshire blue badge guide. She still does this and enjoys the perks and the strange things she is asked to do and the people she meets.In thinking her for her talk, Jane Unwin also complimented her on her work as a guide which she had personally experienced recently.

Sixth Formers at Lady Manners School were given sage advice by an ex student, turned TV star, in a visit to the school by Richard Lumsden. Richard is a familiar face from stage and screen. He has featured in television programmes such as Holby City, Midsomer Murders and The Catherine Tate Show. He also starred alongside Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson in ‘Sense and Sensibility’. During his time as a student at Lady Manners School, Richard learned many of the skills that have helped him succeed in his chosen career. He cites the ability to work well in a team as one of those skills. He also told the sixth-form audience that they should have the confidence to trust their instincts in deciding

so well to a “bit of a do”. By chance the date coincided with Armed Forces Day and the youngest visitor at the supper was Senior Aircraftman Will Noble, of No 1 Air Mobility Wing, logistics section, at RAF Brize Norton, recently returned from Oman. Will is pictured deep in conversation with Nancy Pulley, one of the Society’s older members. Nancy was in the WRNS during WW2, recruited to Bletchley Park to work on the secret decoding system, which saved so many lives.

their next career move. Richard was so determined to become an actor that, as a student, he made his own short films in order to gain experience. His final piece of advice to Lady Manners students was that their future is in their own hands, so they should get involved in anything and everything that would make it happen. Tim Sizer, Head of Lady Manners School Sixth Form said, “We were delighted to welcome Richard back to school. It has been wonderful to hear how he has progressed since leaving the school and how he feels his time here has helped him to achieve his ambitions.” Richard can shortly be seen in feature film ‘Downfall’ and BBC drama ‘By Any Means’.

Emma Harrison, who champions small charities, said: “We would like to thank everyone for supporting this year’s event. It was an amazing success and we were happy to once again help raise the profile of the great work done by these superb organisations.”

Miller's Dale & District W.I. met in Litton Village Hall on Wednesday 10th. July. Judy Cooper, our President, welcomed all members and 2 visitors. The business meeting included the date of The Autumn Federation meeting 1st October '13 in Derby; also a new date for the Derby quiz, now 6th. September '13. The previous one in March had to be cancelled due to the snow. The members were also asked for volunteers to help with the catering during 3 visits to The Hall in August; this was finalised later. We were reminded that there is no meeting in August. We are also trying to arrange a Craft Day in September. Judy then introduced the Speaker - MR. JOHN FIRTH, who gave us an excellent talk on and demonstration on making cards and different methods of folding them. He started with a short resume of how he came to be in Tideswell. He the went on to talk about greeting cards and how - just by using varying folds, they became quite different. He had many examples and ended his talk by giving us all a card to cut out and fold. We all thoroughly enjoyed this experience - with lots of chats during our folding efforts! The next WI meeting is on September 11th at 7.30pm in our usual venue Litton Village Hall. The Speaker is Mr. Robert Alan-Havel and his talk is entitled The Dolphin Experience.

The team, who were raising money for the children’s hospice, had passed through twenty Peak District villages stopping at every pub, cafe and tea room as they drummed up donations for the charity which provides care and support to children and young people in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire with a shortened life expectancy. Frances Milburn, community fundraiser at Brainstrust, which supports brain tumour patients and carers within South yorkshire and North derbyshire said: “We all had a superb time. The crowds were extremely supportive in all the charities. There was a great buzz around the event and we were able to

Trefoil Guild Celebrate 70 Years

Matlock Trefoil Guild joined members from across the Midlands at a Garden Party to celebrate 70 years of the Trefoil Guild in the UK. Held in the grounds of the Shugborough Estate in Staffordshire in front of the Mansion House the setting could not be better under a bright blue sky. After a welcome from the Midlands Region Trefoil Guild chairman the guests were entertained by talented musicians from Wolverhampton Girls High School while a paraglider circled overhead. Picnic tables were heaving with delicious food and appropriate beverages. After the ceremonial cutting of the celebration cake, it was washed down with bubbly and dancing to West Hill Street Youth steel band. There was an opportunity to visit the

private apartments of the Earls of Lichfield, full of furniture and memorabilia relating to the late Patrick Lichfield, photographer. Matlock Trefoil Guild have enjoyed a full programme throughout 2013 with participation in County, Region and National events, as well as an interesting monthly programme. There was a barbecue at Pax Tor in May to enjoy the bluebell woods, and much admiration for our member Ann Swales’ skill in making her Victorian Dolls’ House. Plans are in hand for some members to visit Mexico in October, and India and Russia in 2014. The Guild meet on the 3rd Thursday each month at the Dale Road Methodist Church Hall in Darley Dale. For further information ring 01629 56528 or 01629 583693.

Soroptimist International The Buxton Soroptimists met for their June meeting at the Old Hall Hotel, Buxton to hear a fascinating account of the time when Buxton was under the sea. The Stone and Water Project, which engages with young people and local groups, is run by Creeping Toad, Gordon MacLellan. He and his colleague sarah Males described the various landscaped surrounding the High Peak such as the wooded forests around Chesterfield, which are now coal, and the seabed of the Peak District, now limestone with many, many fossils. One lady brought with her a fossil which Gordon identified as a mushroom coral. Models were shown which had

been made by previous groups in all media possible. The growth of the corals is in a form which is beautifully replicated in crochet. Plankton were painted on to gauze, and a tiny model rock pool had been crafted from paper. The evening was enjoyed by all present. Fiona Innes thanked Creeping Toad on behalf of the Soroptimists. The group meets each month at the Old Hall Hotel, and they work with Soroptimists from all over the world to better the lives of women and children. Their current project is the BIG project, (Birthing in Gambia) in partnership with MCAI foundation.

There were many side shows, fair rides and stalls and new attractions, The Red Barrows from Bonsall, Zoot The Fire Eater, The Derwent Bowmen and even Gully Mouse from Gulliver’s Kingdom. Carol Taylor (Chapel Studio Photographs) was on hand to take some great shots of the day. Stanton in Peak Primary School’s PTA served refreshments and sold copies of their newly published cookery book to raise funds for the school. The Carnival Committee was helped this year by staff from Dales Housing. This assistance formed part of a successful community project and all those taking part thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, with lasting memories of a very successful day helping out in the Derbyshire Dales. Locals, visitors and guests staying at Barn Farm Campsite took part in the fun. There was even a fly past from a WWII Dakota Bomber on route home to its Lincolnshire airbase! The entertainment then moved to Barn Farm Campsite for a night of live music and a firework and light finale by Pryotex Fireworx. The Farmyard, hosted a bar at the Camp Site and a selection of food was available from Italiano Forni and Soi. The Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who helped and supported the event and also Dave Kennedy of Bakewell Music Shop for organising the music in the evening, the stall holders for their donations and to Barn

Farm Campsite, Birchover Parish Council, Birchover Stone, Enthovans, The Red Lion Inn and Costa Coffee (Bakewell) for help with funding. A Committee member said ‘Birchover Carnival gets bigger and better each year. The feedback from residents and visitors about this year’s event has been fantastic and we hope the carnival will continue for many years to come!’

The Upper Derwent Valley and High Peak Moorlands …CONTINUED

House which stands above the waterline of the reservoir. No matter how many officials from Derwent Valley Water Board tried to persuade her to move, she stayed put and lived out the rest of her long life there.

Petrol and whiskies at the inn For 45 years Derwent vicarage was home to the Reverend Walter Edward Rouse, who lived like a country squire and spent most of his time hunting, shooting and fishing. The lovely Derwent Hall – also doomed to be drowned – was one of the seats of the Duke of Norfolk; he rarely visited but always laid on a Christmas party for his tenants. Derwent and Ashopton shared a village bobby, a huge Irishman named James Waldron, but the nearest doctor was Dr Shepherd at Castleton, not too convenient in an emergency.

In 1930 Joe’s two brothers, Thomas Isaac and Edward, introduced a new line to Fox House Inn with the installation of two petrol pumps. National Benzole cost a shilling (12 pence/5p) a gallon and Cleveland 11 pence ha’penny. Every Sunday their best customer would arrive in his RollsRoyce for several whiskies at the inn while the unpaid attendant – young Joe – filled

up the Rolls with 26 gallons of the best petrol. This involved half an hour of nonmechanised pumping, leaving his arms ‘fit to drop off’. Joe Rowarth was lucky enough to pass a scholarship

exam to Lady Manners Grammar School at Bakewell. As a day boarder he had his dinner and tea at school and in the evening did his homework in the schoolhouse. There was no bus home until nearly 7 o’clock. Lady Manners School was then in the present Town Hall, though 1st and 2nd-year pupils had a schoolroom in the building later occupied by Ambrose Printing. Sixthformers were taught at Bath House. One of Joe’s classmates was Maurice (later Sir Maurice) Oldfield, whose future career as head of MI5 would bring intermittent flurries of security activity to his home

village of Over Haddon. Greased from snout to tail Bakewell was the place to be on high days and holidays. The 1937 Coronation of George V1 was celebrated with gusto by Joe and a dozen mates who crammed themselves into an Austin Twelve and came to town to ‘get pickled’ and join in the fun on the recreation ground. Here awaited the virtually unattainable prize of a 12-

week-old pig. But first you had to catch it – and it was thoroughly greased from snout to tail. Another messy challenge involved two opponents straddling a greased pole over the river and trying to knock each

other off with pillows. The evening ended more sedately with a Coronation Dance at the Whitworth Institute in Darley Dale. As Joe grew older, one of his greatest pleasures was sheepdog training under the guidance of shepherd Joe Tagg. It turned out that the pupil had been taught by a master. At the 1932 Sheepdog Trials Joe Rowarth set a new world record when he and his dog, Jed, completed the course in 4 minutes 47 seconds. In 1954 the names of Joe Tagg and his sheepdog, Tip, passed into local legend after the old chap perished in a snowstorm on Howden moors. Tip stayed by his master’s body until it was found 15 weeks later. Dad’s Army Joe had gone into farming just before WW2, having moved into Yarncliffe Lodge on the former Longshaw estate. Come the war, he and three others – Watson Jago the village doctor, Dick Outram the landlord of Sir William Inn, and Wilf Grace the schoolmaster – banded together to form Grindleford LDV – Local Defence Volunteers. The intrepid defenders borrowed four shotguns and a pocketful of cartridges, making regular patrols up to Froggatt Edge and ‘waiting for the Germans to come’. One memorable night Joe decided to break off from his guard duties to bag a goose on Barbrook reservoir. He was only halfway there when the scream of air-raid sirens broke out over Sheffield, sending him scurrying back to the rocks where he nestled tightly into a cleft. Thanks to a heavy leather coat he was well padded, so much so that when he leaned backwards he got stuck and it was morning before he managed to wriggle free. The LDV became the Home Guard, otherwise known as Dad’s Army. The Grindleford platoon became about 30 strong and hatched cunning plans at their Stoke Hall HQ. They set traps to catch the enemy, excavated dugouts with pick and shovel by the entrance to Yarncliffe Quarry, and prepared lengths of wire to hang across the

road to slice off enemy heads. A planned escape route would involve clambering down into Padley Gorge to sail down the river, an unlikely scenario that still made Joe laugh more than 50 years later. The idea was born that those with motorbikes should become dispatch riders, so Joe removed the sidecar from his BSA and learned to drive in his gas mask. Riders numbered around 35, including an ex-Sheffield Speedway rider and an AA patrolman. His beloved moorland In the event, Derwent village was doomed not by war but by the construction of a massive reservoir which was to ‘drown’ practically all that was familiar. After a final service on 17 March 1943, Derwent church was left to its fate. Its treasures were distributed around other churches, including the east window along with stone to build a vestry at Hathersage.

The old stone font in which all three Rowarth boys had been christened was given safe haven in Tansley church. To Joe’s great sadness a window dedicated to his brother Edward was taken away and never recovered. Two hundred and 84 bodies were removed from the churchyard for reburial at Bamford. Change seemed to have followed close on Joe’s heels all his life. He saw the sale of ducal estates, re-alignment of a county boundary that left Dore outside Derbyshire and lived to see stretches of his beloved moorland opened up under access agreements. By the time we met him, he was living in retirement at Grindleford but still belonged to Hathersage Society for the Prosecution of Felons … then there was the Shepherds’ Society and Longshaw Sheepdog Trials to look forward to. All in all, Joe Rowarth was a very contented Peaklander. Julie Bunting

On the 7th July All Saints Messy Church ended as usual with breakfast - bacon butties, pancakes and yoghurt were enjoyed by all! Before this, adults and children together explored the theme of ‘God is

Everywhere’ by taking part in an obstacle course, and other activities to illustrate the different ways and places we can know God. Messy Church is a relaxed, fun and creative approach to

Alec Horn a member of the Sheffied Tri Club from Castleton came 2nd in the British Age Group 70-74 category Triathlon Championships in Liverpool at the weekend. In doing so Alec qualified for the World

Age Group Championships in London in September (on the Olympic course). The race consisted of 1500 metres open water swim, 40 km bike and 10 km run. The swim took place in Queen's Dock.

Taddington & District W.I. At our July meeting we awaited the arrival of a lady to give a talk entitled ‘My Hats’, and even when Irene Yarnell from Matlock arrived wearing a very smart outfit with a lovely pink hat we were not quite sure what to expect – but what an entertaining evening we had. Irene brought along at least a dozen large boxes and bags full of hats. There were hats for every occasion and photos to show how and where they were worn. There were hats for everyday (Irene even has hats for travelling on the bus) weddings hats, garden party hats, berets of every colour

We make, design and install hand-made, bespoke kitchens.

They require a lot of thinking about. Besides the work surfaces and cupboards, there is plumbing to consider, electrical wiring, flooring, tiling, appliances... So it’s good to know you’ll have the personal attention, vision and support of an expert specialist retailer...

for walking in the countryside. There isn’t a style or a colour that Irene doesn’t possess. She certainly is the Imelda Marcos of the hat world As some members were unable to be with us for the July meeting, we are definitely going to ask Irene to come to Taddington again when hopefully there will be more people to enjoy Irene’s hats. Our annual outing took place in June when a dozen or so members went on a coach trip to Stratfordupon-Avon for the day. The weather was lovely and the ladies enjoyed sightseeing and a trip on the river Avon. A good choice for a day out!

Anyone who is interested in volunteering for the Poppy Appeal can visit http://www.britishlegion.or volunteering or if they would like an informal chat about the Poppy Appeal Organiser role in one of these areas, they can contact Christine Selden, Community Fundraiser on 07973 750816 or via email cselden@

Established in 1946 our team has over 120 years combined experience in the furniture business For over 32 years Haydn Stanley has successfully run his own furniture business on Bank Road Matlock and he puts this down to good old fashioned values. “I firmly believe in putting the customer first and as I’ve been in the trade for over sixty years I’ve stood by these principles since day one!” states Haydn. As time and styles have changed, the shop has adapted to suit customer needs and sells a large and extensive range of beds, bedroom furniture and occasional furniture. The shop also stocks a comprehensive range of floor coverings from simple door mats to full hose carpeting. A full fitting service is available and prices are as

competitive as any big named store.


After our enjoyable outing to Renishaw Hall and our two speaker meetings in July, we have only one event planned for August. On August 9 we will have our popular Fun Bingo afternoon with proceeds for Club funds. We normally meet fortnightly at Baslow Village Hall, starting at 2pm, but there will be no meeting on

August 23 as it is Bank Holiday weekend. We welcome new members, from Baslow or around. This is a friendly and thriving club. Refreshments are served by our willing volunteers. If you are interested in joining us, please phone Christopher Wragg, Baslow 583228.

Along with staff members Jackie Jackson and Carl Gregory, the team offer

friendly and efficient service. Nothing is too much trouble. Some companies fail to have the substance that Haydn Stanley Furniture possess, as between them the team have over 120 years combined experience in the furniture business. The company offers good local delivery and should they not stock what the customer desires, they have strong trade contracts to obtain most items within a very short time-frame. Sometimes in a matter of days! To build a business takes time, dedication and experience. The hard working team at Haydn Stanley’s have succeeded in looking after thousands of customers from not only the local area, but numerous parts of the country.

LOCAL STUDENTS TAKE PART IN DESIGN COMPETITION Over recent years much has been done to help school children prepare for work, particularly with year 10 students having the chance to go on work placements. However, all too often, work placements provide children with little real life work experience other than learning how to make the perfect cup of tea. For Bakewell-based Litton Property Group they went one stage further and, instead of calling in a design agency to create a new logo for one of their developments, they decided to see if the local school could like to take up the challenge. Rachel Gaunt, Head of Art, at Lady Manners School, was approached on behalf of Bakewell-based Litton Property Group to invite students to take part in a design competition. Rachel was very happy to put the idea to her colleagues and was delighted that some of her art students would get the chance to work on a real design project. A detailed design brief was prepared and submitted to year 10 Art students, who were given 4 weeks to work

It was immediately Once all the entries had been submitted, the judging obvious that the standard of panel — Mark Twelves the students' entries was very (Litton’s MD), Helen Yates high, as Mark Twelves (Litton’s property manager), explains: “We were all Jim Harrison (Thornbridge extremely impressed by the Brewery’s MD), Matt Kay quality of the designs and the (Born2Move’s MD) and Simon effort that had been put into Turton (MD of Opera Public them and it was not an easy Relations) – met to review the decision to choose the

winner.” “During the judging process, and in response to the high standard of entries, it was decided that we should also have additional prizes for two runners-up. We have made a decision and we are delighted to announce that the overall winner is Charlotte Wood and the two worthy runners-up are Finlay Goodwin and Euan Greatorex.” “On behalf of the judging panel, I would like to thank Rachel Gaunt, Head of Art, for taking the time to help organise this competition; I would also like to thank all the students for taking part and we hope that they have all taken something from the experience to see how skills developed at school can be very much applied, and are indeed needed, in the working environment.” The winning logo has now been incorporated into signage that will identify the building and the design will be used by Litton for additional promotional purposes. Charlotte Wood won an iPad Mini and case; the runners-up each receive an iPod Shuffle.

‘A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF A HOPE SHOW PRESIDENT…’ CALVER’S WEIR HISTORY REVEALED A week is a long time in politics, but 12 months as President of Hope Show has passed very quickly. Following the AGM it is the role of the President to represent and promote Hope Show on every possible occasion including at events arranged by kindred associations. The year commences with Bamford Sheepdog Trials, a relaxed and enjoyable day. Next was Bakewell and a pre-Show dinner and very pleasant day at the Show. The President’s tour is completed at Longshaw, which involved a very pleasant lunch in a tent overlooking the trial field. The year culminates in the Hope Show… The President’s role is to entertain Hope Show Presidents, past and future, the show’s official guests and some of our own relatives and friends. First there is the President’s official tour of the show, featuring two notable highlights; the President’s Lady judging the poultry and the children’s cade lambs. Both tasks require wisdom and diplomatic skills! We then entertain the Shows and our guests and

enjoyed an excellent lunch provided by the two Lesleys operating as Heart of the Peak. “I make no apology for saying that we had a fantastic day as did our guests.” Many had not been to Hope Show before and commented that they wished they had arrived earlier because there was so much to see. So there you have it. The

show took place when many others never even had that chance and those who attended it thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The magic of Hope Show with its livestock, be they sheep, cattle, alpacas, hens, dogs, sheep or gun dogs, horses heavy or light, alongside classic cars and tractors, was alive and well if a little damp Our year is over and it is

time to hand over to a new President, Mr Roger Dickson, to preside over yet another successful year for Hope Show in 2013. This year’s Hope Show is on August 26th, Bank Holiday Monday. For more information see the website 10% discount on tickets if you book online before August 5th.


Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport staff, volunteers and trustees presented Lynn Jackson with a commemorative plaque and B & ECT Buses flower box at the Annual General Meeting which took place at Calver Village Hall. Lynn was involved at the very beginning of B & ECT in 1986. Very soon she was actively working with Ian Green (the previous Chair) and a small group of dedicated volunteers as part of the Bakewell and District Community Minibus project. In 1988 Lynn had convinced the Bakewell minibus project that there was a need for some support for a luncheon club in Eyam as the local residents could not get to social activities. This was the beginning of Bakewell and Eyam Area Minibus Scheme (BEAMS). In 1989 BEAMS changed to Bakewell and Eyam

across the Dales over the next few weeks. Youngsters aged between 11 and 19 are being invited to take part in the free summer scheme, which is aimed at offering a fun and healthy activity that also helps stop children getting involved in anti-social behaviour and crime. The series of events will be held every Tuesday in Matlock and every Friday at Wirksworth and Cromford. Regular sessions are already held at Middleton and are often packed out. Specially trained officers from Safer Neighbourhood teams in the area will be helping run the summer sessions along with the OzBox’s expert volunteers. Sergeant Nick Reason, who leads the Safer Neighbourhood teams in those areas, said: “OzBox has been a hit in the past and sessions we have had in Middleton recently have been very well attended. “It’s a great social activity for young people to get involved in and helps them both keep fit and stay out of trouble. “The feedback we’ve had from parents, children and the community alike has been positive and I’m sure these summer sessions will be just as popular as the Middleton ones.” OzBox is open to males and females of all backgrounds and is delivered by trained volunteers including police officers, PCSOs, youth workers and members of the public. It is designed to boost young people’s confidence,

discipline and fitness and to give them an activity to get involved in rather than being out on the streets. It also aims to encourage children and young adults to take pride in themselves and their community. The special summer sessions will be held at: •Arc Leisure Centre, Matlock: 3pm to 4.30pm every Tuesday from July 30 to September 3; •Wirksworth Memorial Hall: 3pm to 4pm every Friday from August 2 to August 30; •Cromford Community Centre: 5pm to 6pm every Friday from August 9 to September 6. Gear is provided at the sessions but anyone taking part needs to wear appropriate clothing and footwear. For more information, call your local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101.

TRAINING 4 SAFETY – PRINCE SUPPORTS DERBYSHIRE YOUNG FARMERS Derbyshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs is delighted to announce the launch of its new “Training 4 Safety” project from the 1st August 2013. This new initiative aims to provide members of Derbyshire Young Farmers with valuable training in a variety of key areas to enhance career prospects within agriculture and crucially to improve their safety in a highly dangerous work environment. The project has been made possible following a

It is almost three years since Calver Weir was successfully restored. In many ways, this is the fourth incarnation of a weir on or near this location. The first weir was built straight across the river from near Shuttle House between 1799 and 1804. By the 1830s, Sir William Heygate, one of the mill’s owners, and the mill manager reorganised the mill’s water power by altering the line of the goit and building a new wheelhouse. A new weir was built during the 1840s to deal better with flood waters. It was not very successful and by 1848 it was being rebuilt after flood damage. This was the weir which deteriorated during the 20th century. Since its recent restoration, the weir has become a focal point for historical research, inspiring a group of local people to explore the history of Calver through the working life of the mill and weir. Interesting results show where both the workers and cotton came from. Between 1868 and 1872 the mill listed its cotton as coming from Madras, New Orleans, San Domingo, South America

and Surato. The raw cotton is described as being in Liverpool in two accounts, suggesting the mill bought cotton direct from foreign suppliers rather than through the Manchester cotton exchange. The Lancashire (and Cheshire) influence on the mill was nevertheless strong at this time. Many cotton workers are listed in the census records as from Bolton, Bury, Chorley, Hyde, Manchester and Stockport.

Sissons took over Calver Mill in 1947 as a stainless steel product factory. They soon acquired a ‘secret machine’ from liberated Europe for making circular sinks. By the 1980s they were making sinks, urinals and showers for prisons, hospitals, German trains and the British Army in the Falklands. Sissons even turned the river red for a day testing a machine on behalf of Ski Yoghurts! An exhibition and booklet

will be published with the results of this work by the end of the summer. The exhibition will be at Calver Village Hall on Saturday 31st August between 12 noon and 5pm, and Sunday 1st September between 10am and 5pm. There will also be an audio-visual slideshow of oral history excerpts with old photos as well as free refreshments. The booklet will be launched at the exhibition. Bill Bevan

Over Haddon Village Management Committee (OHVHMC) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Hallmark 2 accreditation, making it the only community organisation in Derbyshire to achieve this level of certification. OHVHMC already holds a Hallmark 1 qualification. This will be presented at the Annual Over Haddon Village Show, to be held on Saturday 14th September 2013 at Over Haddon Village Hall, by Helena Stubbs of Rural Action Derbyshire. The village hall will open to the public, after judging has been completed, at around 2.30pm. Produce will be auctioned from around 4.30pm and there will be a series of Children’s Races during the afternoon. The Hallmark scheme was launched by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) on 30 March 2007 and currently operates in 20 counties in

England. It promotes the delivery of effective and well-managed village halls through a quality standards scheme which is backed up by a system of peer visitors. ACRE is the national umbrella body of the Rural Community Action Network (RCAN), which operates at national, regional and local level in support of rural communities across the country. How does the Hallmark scheme work? Village hall committees receive a Hallmark Award in recognition of their achievement in managing their hall to a nationally recognised standard. Hallmark uses a system of trained peer visitors who use checklists to identify performance and provide an external validation of achievement. These peer visitors are often Active Hall committee members who have been through the Hallmark system themselves. This peer

visitor system is overseen locally by the Village Hall Adviser at Rural Action Derbyshire. There are three Hallmark Awards to achieve: Hallmark 1 focuses on the management and administration of the

charity Hallmark 2 focuses on health, safety, security and licences Hallmark 3 focuses on community and social a w a r e n e s s , communications, forward planning and development.

Shopkeeper and florist, Robert Young was thrilled to be the first proud owner of Matlock In Bloom’s new “Award for Excellence”! He received recognition at a small ceremony outside his shop in Crown Square last week, and with him were his team of talented workers. The award is given to anyone who is judged by Matlock In Bloom’s committee to have raised the standard of the town’s environment in any way, and in Robert’s case, it has been his outstanding shop frontage which has

attracted so much positive comment. In the near future, the committee hope to announce further examples of superb work in the town, but if you can suggest worthy winners, please c o n t a c t with brief details of the site or project you’ve spotted. Working in conjunction with Matlock In Bloom on this scheme are members of Matlock Camera Club, and in time the images taken from the various examples of excellence, will be brought together in an exhibition to promote our town.

successful application to the Prince’s Countryside Fund. The fund was created in 2010 by HRH Prince Charles and provides grants to projects that help to support the people who care for the countryside. Derbyshire YFC are very lucky to be one of the 16 successful applicants, after the charity received over 290 requests for this round of funding. With 10 clubs across Derbyshire and over 400 members, a large proportion of whom work within the agricultural industry, the Federation has been keen to find ways to support its members in gaining vital training and qualifications, not only to enhance career prospects but also to reduce accidents and fatalities in our rural communities. The agricultural industry has one of the highest serious injury and death rates of any industry in Great Britain. On average, between 40 and 50 workers are killed on British farms every year; that’s nearly one person per week and is a higher death rate than construction or manufacturing. A recent survey found that 100 Derbyshire YFC members would like to receive training in a variety of areas including machinery handling, health and safety, safe use of pesticides and transportation of livestock. The successful funding application from the Princes Countryside fund will mean that the Training 4 Safety project can go ahead from the 1st August 2013 and over the next twelve months approximately 170

individuals will receive training in the above fields. As well as aiding career prospects we hope that by increasing basic awareness the project will reduce the number of accidents and ultimately the number of fatalities. In addition to these obvious benefits, we hope that the project will also address the stress and pressures placed on rural communities by helping to reduce some of the ever increasing financial and legislative burdens in modern day farming. Derbyshire Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs is very grateful for the grant from the Prince’s Countryside Fund and we hope that the Training 4 Safety project will make a real difference to the lives of our members, farming and rural enterprises and local communities. For further details regarding the Training 4 Safety Project or Derbyshire Young Farmers please go to our website: or find us on Facebook.

Primary School Headteacher and having some past experience of acting, he set about a second career as an acting ‘extra’. This was in a wide range of well known television series. Many of these were set in our region. He recalled work on Peak Practice, Emmerdale, Doctors, Holby City etc. and his anecdotes were illustrated by his professional memorabilia of ‘casting’ portfolios, costume advice sheets, scripts and the specifics of what were expected of an extra in speech, costume etc. In addition he read examples of his comic verse – some of which alluded to his on-set meeting of other comic actors such as Kathy Staff as Nora Batty in Last of the Summer Wine. BESS OF HARDWICK July saw us engrossed in listening to John Hawkins give an detailed and fascinating account of Bess of Hardwick one of our favourite local women – a ‘local girl made good’. John quickly dispensed with any idea of Bess as the ‘grasping woman’ she has sometimes been thought of as being, but set her life, her four marriages, her competence and her longevity into the social context of the 16th century. His talk was very well illustrated with projected images and detailed historical facts and context. We now take a short summer break while we participate in and help with the various traditional village activities of Wells dressing and Carnival.

The next meeting is Thursday 5th September at 7.45pm in Eyam Mechanics’ Institute with Jo Dall talking to us about and encouraging us to ‘Health and Wellbeing’. As always, new members and visitors are very welcome to attend.

BAKEWELL CRICKET CLUB STRUGGLING FOR WINS Division 2 of the Yorkshire & Derbyshire Cricket League is proving a hard place to be for Bakewell Cricket Club this season as they continue to find victories elusive. Both their recent matches have seen comprehensive defeats. In the home game against Sheffield Civil Service sponsored by Bakewell Show, Bakewell were dismissed for a paltry 103 with only Jeff Madin putting up much resistance with an innings of 33. Jason Clarke was the main destroyer taking 5-21. The visitors lost only 2 wickets on the way to victory, Hummad Younis scoring 45. The away trip to Weston Park Hospital did at least see the Bakewell side perform much better. Richard Reed took 5-42 as the home team racked up a total of 247-8. In reply, Bakewell were dismissed for 160 with Chris Haynes top scoring with 35. Club Chairman Gerald Worsencroft came out of retirement to make up a full XI and failed only by eight balls to deny the home team an outright win. Bakewell’s next home game will be sponsored by New Close Farm.

It is a Gala Day with a party atmosphere as most of the activities take place along the main street which is closed to motor traffic for the afternoon. The theme for the village Well Dressing this year is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the RHS Royal Chelsea Flower Show. The usual range of attractions will be present – stalls for produce, gifts, brica-brac, plants, books, charity etc. There will be children’s games, a Fire Engine, walks with Llamas, a Barbecue, delicious ice creams, and it is hoped there may be another appearance of the very popular traction engine ‘in steam’, old technology permitting. The Old Chapel will be purveying excellent refreshments as well as

putting on another of their fascinating exhibitions. The whole afternoon will be accompanied to the lively music of Roy Walker’s All Star Jazz Band. There may be other musical events. The jollifications will conclude with the ancient and traditional village Doris Dancers performing their ritual dance which it is hoped will ensure fine weather for next year’s Gala Day.

Please note: Seven Trent Water, carrying out major works in the Hucklow area, may have closed one of the approach roads to Great Hucklow during the week of the Gala, but don’t be put off – there will be two other access roads open to the village on Gala Day.

Bakewell Croquet Club enjoyed participating in the Bakewell Baking Festival at the request of the Mayor Paul Morgans by playing croquet in the recreation ground for the entertainment of the public. The club is always willing to consider giving demonstrations and taster lessons to raise funds for local charities or other town events. The club’s ‘A’ team playing in the East Midlands golf croquet league won their match at home on 28th June 9-3 against Long Eaton. For more information google bakewell croquet club.

Peter Naldrett has compiled this wide range of 20 circular Peak District walks offering ways to explore our wonderful National Park by using existing train services, at the same time delving into the history of villages which formerly had rail links, now sadly closed. It is however possible to catch the TransPennine Express and reach such wonderful walking bases as Grindleford, Edale, Bamford and Hathersage, ready to set off to explore the best in rivers, rocks, moors and villages that the Peak has to offer. It is equally fascinating to dig into the region’s past by visiting train stations long since closed, not least those of Tissington, Bakewell and Millers Dale – all set amidst glorious scenery. A new generation has discovered the pleasures of exploring the heritage of a bygone era by walking along such disused railway lines as the High Peak, Tissington and Monsal Trails. Today we can walk through echoing renovated tunnels and

linger on abandoned platforms to discover railway remnants left behind from the Age of Steam. The suggestions essentially concentrate on accessible trails that take in fabulous countryside and offer some of the finest views in the land. Each walk comes with background information about the surrounding places and an insight into the station’s history, plus old photographs to give an idea of what the area used to look like when many more trains crisscrossed our hills and dales. These rewarding walks are an ideal way to maintain your green credentials, enjoy great hikes, discover excellent refreshment stops and learn about the Peak’s often surprising industrial past. ‘Peak District Walks Starting from Train Stations’ by Peter Naldrett is published by Sigma in softback, priced ÂŁ8.99 and available through local bookshops.

Derbyshire Delights A FLOWER FESTIVAL

BRIGHT AND BLOOMING STATION Thanks to Schoolchildren and Volunteers

Children’s artwork and the work of green fingered Parish Councillors have led to Matlock Bath Railway Station being shortlisted for a Best Station award. A set of artwork depicting local scenes of Matlock Bath has been produced by children from Matlock Bath Holy Trinity Primary School. These colourful and vibrant scenes have been installed inside the station waiting room to be enjoyed by passengers whilst waiting for their train. These scenes are complemented by a pair of images adorning the platform fence and exterior of the waiting room welcoming people to Matlock Bath station. Amanda Mee, Headteacher at Matlock Bath Holy Trinity Primary School, said, “The children really enjoyed being part of the project and as a school we feel it is important to be involved in community projects”. Green fingered Parish Councillors, who adopted the station in January, have also recently installed a set of barrel planters along the platform and station entrance area. The planting barrels have been purchased and installed by the Parish Council and the plants grown by children

“Rowsley needs oil lamps! Leaving the station on a Sunday night it was as dark as a wolf’s mouth. I ran into a wall, then over my boot tops in a puddle hole”. This was in the 1890s and is one of the hundreds of extracts from the writings of Horace Weir or The Man of the Peak who wrote in various Derbyshire newspapers in 1890s to early 1900s. “In connection with the

recent drought, the Peak District once had a curious custom of making a large bonfire of ferns to produce rain” is another example from his column. These cuttings have been collected into two large albums and provide a great insight into life of the times in Derbyshire with parochial news, political happenings, details of walks in the area and much more all jostling space.

For two days packed with family fun, you can’t beat Bakewell Show – just ask our 60,000 visitors! And this year organisers are adding a new dimension... a special Equestrian Day on August 6th - the day before the official show on August 7th and 8th - to accommodate new classes including dressage and ridden heavy horses. The centre ring attraction for 2013 will showcase Gullivers’ Carnival Spectacular, a brand new entertainment from the Stampede Stunt Company. This fast-paced all-action Victoriana trick riding show will be presented by the quizzically eccentric ringmaster - stilt-walking, traveller showman Oliver Gulliver. Professional performers, both human

and equine, will amaze visitors with their trick riding, Roman riding, rearing, falls, drags, sword fighting, humour, action, stunts and drama. Another new attraction this year is an area dedicated to the Emergency Services. The county’s Air Ambulance will be bringing the fuselage of a helicopter for young visitors to sit in and also be putting on rescue demonstrations throughout the day. The Fire Service will be demonstrating the way to handle a chip pan fire safely and Edale Mountain Rescue will also be doing a demonstration. Derbyshire Police Ozbox initiative, which aims to keep young people out of trouble will also be in the area, near the horticulture tent. Bakewell Show is known as the ‘friendly show’ with something for everyone; hundreds of champion animals in the cattle lines, speciality food in the food and farming marquee, giant vegetables and fantastic flowers in the horticulture section and an Open Dog Show - a qualifier for Crufts. The latest cars are on show, together with treasured vintage examples and for shopaholics there is a wonderful range of trade stands, selling everything from water features and wellies to exclusive fashions in exquisite silk and wool. There’s even a beach where the kids can have fun with Punch and Judy, donkey rides and candy floss while mums and dads rest their weary legs in the deck chairs.

The S. Anselm’s U13A ‘Dreamteam’ recently made it a hat-trick, playing in their third consecutive IAPS National Netball Finals, after qualifying for the event in an earlier regional tournament, beating teams from Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Scotland. The team faced the

best IAPS Netball teams from the whole of the UK (the best of the rest), and certainly held their own narrowly missing out on a place in the quarter finals by a mere one point, to finish ninth overall. Their coach and manager Donna Brailich (S. Anselm’s Head of Girls’ Games) said, “These girls

certainly have punched above their weight from under 11 age to present. As their coach I am immensely proud of each of the girls and all they have achieved. S. Anselm's have now had one, sometimes two teams in the IAPS National Netball Finals every year for the past eight years - an amazing

DERBYSHIRE DOUBLE FOR WIRKSWORTH NEIGHBOURS Jorge Thompson set off strong with the leading group with Harrison Fern swimming extremely well. There were 80 swimmers in the race and Jorge finished in a time of 19.42.02 which resulted in him being awarded Derbyshire Gold in the 14 year age group and Harrison finished in 22.27.18 winning Derbyshire Gold for the 13 year age group. This was a fantastic result for their first open water championship.

‘MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK’ ADVICE GIVEN TO LADY MANNERS SCHOOL SIXTH FORMERS Lady Manners School ‘old girl’, Elizabeth Davis, a successful journalist, has visited Lady Manners School as part of a programme of events run by the school’s Sixth-Form team. Elizabeth is currently the Staff Writer and Digital Editor at ‘BBC Music Magazine’. She talked to the Sixth-Formers about her career journey since leaving Lady Manners School in 2006, having gained ‘A’ levels in English Literature; Drama & Theatre Studies; French; and Music. This journey has taken her via Cambridge University, where she discovered her interest in journalism, and though City University in London, completing a Masters in Magazine Journalism. Elizabeth gave a piece of advice to her Sixth-Form audience: make your own luck. She was following her own advice as she worked hard to find placements to give her the experience needed to take the next step on the career ladder. This has worked well for her… as well as the large box of chocolates she made a point of buying as a parting gift for each team with which she worked!

On Sunday the 7th of July, Jorge Thompson aged 14 and Harrison Fern aged 13 competed at the Midlands Open Water swimming championships at Bosworth Water in Leicestershire. The swimmers, who train with Chesterfield Swimming Club, were competing in their first regional open water championship. Competitors had travelled country wide with many England Talent swimmers competing at the event.

Jorge and Harrison, both students at Anthony Gell School in Wirksworth, competed in the 1.5km race. The weather was extremely hot and as such not only did the daring duo have to overcome their first time nerves in getting into the fish filled waters but they were also being observed by a vast crowd, who were all there enjoying the beautiful weather and who were lucky to be able to watch this increasingly popular sport.

deep wooded gorge and sylvan slopes around Cromford and the Via Gellia road. This walk starts in the centre of Cromford which was created by Sir Richard Arkwright, a forward thinking entrepreneur of the highest order who rose through the wealth ranks from penniless pauper to affluent bigwig, and by means of his designs and development, changed the face of the textile industry from cottage crafts to full scale factory processing. Arkwright’s legacy can be appreciated and enjoyed by all in this world heritage site where there are conspicuous constructions as well as tucked away treasures around every corner. I began by wandering along the promenade at Scarthin beside the mill pond. All around, mill workers’ cottages vie for space on the steep slopes between an assemblage of chapels, for this was a village with a staunch congregation a century ago. Within a few hundred yards I would pass the former Mount Tabor Chapel, Primitive Methodist Chapel, Scarthin Mission Room and then begin my ascent to heavenly heights up Chapel Hill, where there are the semi-derelict remains of a Methodist Training School. All but one of the chapels in Cromford have now been converted into alternative use either residential or commercial. The footpath to Bonsall skirted Ball Eye quarry and mine where, within limestone and fluorspar deposits, there have been

danger and no admittance, my path was far more interesting for its botanical content with numerous wild flowers and a frenzy of butterflies eager to make the most of their short lives. After a mile or so the path became a track and I descended into Bonsall at Town End where elevated residents can look across the hilltops and down onto their neighbours – it is two-thirds of a mile from the bottom to the top of the village and a rise of some 400 feet! Beyond the old vicarage with its varied assortment of windows in all manner of architectural style, I passed the little village school and arrived at Bonsall’s ancient church dating from 1230 and dedicated to Saint James. Bonsall was established as a settlement because of its sheltered position and geological situation. It is reputedly in the vicinity of an extinct volcano which created a sandwich of dolomite limestone between layers of volcanic toadstone, leaving behind rich mineral deposits, whilst water permeating through the limestone hollowed out huge caverns and cave systems, some of immense proportions. Many of the properties in Bonsall were built from the profits of lead mining which was prevalent in the area, with capped shafts, dips, hollows and grassed over spoil heaps in every direction. From the church I continued along the road to the junction where Bonsall Cross of 1671 sits atop 13 circular steps. Properties surrounding this bear

evidence to it having once been where village shops were located, now long gone with their fittings removed and replaced by domestic furniture. A building with a continuous row of windows is a reminder of Bonsall’s other industry, framework knitting. The ‘stocking frame’ for the production of stocking and hosiery was invented in 1589 by the Rev. William Lee of Calverton near Nottingham. Ribbed socks and gloves could also be made on a modified machine patented by Jedediah Strutt in 1759. In 1844 it was recorded that some 143 frames were in use in Bonsall, mainly worked by women and young girls, as the men and boys were down the mines or working in the fields. Set into the wall here is a copy of T’owd Man, the original having been taken from St James Church during refurbishment in the 1800’s but never returned. It is said that strange noises coming from the old Ball Eye mine are T’owd Man muttering! Walking past the King’s Head which dates from 1677, I ambled down Yeoman Street, admiring, as I went, all the quaint little houses which lined my route, some with

Brook was held captive and exploited for its energy. Here the most amazing, huge dragonfly performed an aerial acrobatics display right in front of me, like a hovering helicopter on manoeuvres. My return to Cromford started with a short pavement stroll beside the main road, before I dived back beneath the trees on a lovely path beside Slinter Cottage, which was a former mill where timber was taken from the adjacent woodland and turned to make bobbins for Arkwright’s mills. The footpath led me beside Bonsall Brook to Cromford Dam and former corn mill. After having been harnessed here, the brook descended a culvert beneath Water Lane and was then recycled over yet another waterwheel. This survives and can often be seen in motion, although its purpose is now only for show. The premises are occupied by Home Products Basketware, but were at one time a mill where locally mined barytes was ground to be used in the manufacture of paint. With my head spinning from all this water power, history and heat from a hot sunny day, I was ready for a drink before returning home and so decided to descend
