Belper’s Wartime Secret Walk

This circular walk looks at Belper's little-known wartime secrets. During the Second World War, Belper played a key role in the Allied victory. However, as those "in the know" never really talked about what they were doing, many people today have no idea of just how important a place it was. Even many of those living in the town at the time have no idea of what was happening right under their noses. This walk tells the story of the secret wartime work that took place in Belper and visits the sites involved.

Distance: 3.5 miles. Duration: 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: Shortlands Car Park, Chesterfield Road (opposite St Peter's Church),

Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 1FB. – Start time: 10:00am.

On Sunday 28th Apri, Belper Diatrict Scouts and Guides will celebrate St George`s Day with church services and a parade through Belper Town Centre.


There will be two services.  The junior  - Beavers, Cubs, Rainbows and Brownies  –  will hold their service at St Peter`s Church starting at 2.15pm.

The senior sections – Scouts, Guides, Explores and Rangers – will hold their service  at  Christ Church starting at 2.00pm


The services will last approximately 45 minutes and will be followed by the  parade which will pass the Saluting Base at the Memorial Gardens in King Street, Belper at around 3.15pm.  The Salute is received by the Scout and Guide District Commissioners and local dignitaries from the Borough, Town  and local Parish Councils. In previous years our local MPs have also attended.


The parade will be accompanied by two marching bands and will march from  Christ  Church with the older children to St Peter`s to pick up the younger children and then march down King Street.  The event is attended by hundreds of scouts and guides from Belper, Duffield, Holbrook, Horsley, Openwoodgate and Heage. The scouts and guides are very enthusiastic, and this will be a great event to share in the patriotic pride, Unfortunately, the services are not open to the general public as there is insufficent space in the Churches.
