Belper’s Lost Industries Walk

This circular walk around Belper looks at the various lost industries of the world's first cotton mill town. It begins with the cotton mills built by the Strutt family at the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution, with a slight diversion to include the picturesque weir on the river, followed by a look at the houses the family built for their workers. From there, the walk looks at the nail-making industry that pre-dated the arrival of the cotton mills, plus the other industries which once provided employment for the town, including hosiery, confectionery, chemicals and engineering.

Distance: 2.8 miles. Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: The Triangle (junction of A6 Bridge Street and A517 Bridgefoot),

Belper, Derbyshire. – Start time: 10:00am.

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.

Free Concert

For Prostate Cancer U.K.

With Derby A Cappella, Dalesmen Male Voice Choir & Reuben Dakin

Saturday 26 October at 7:00 p.m.  

St. Alkmund's Church, Duffield, DE56 4BA

Free Concert in aid of Prostate Cancer U.K.

In July 2018 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and received exemplary service at the Royal Derby Hospital. Medication and 37 sessions of radiotherapy resulted in the medical team achieving their objective of curing rather than containing my cancer, but I would like something positive to happen for others as a result of my experience.

I sing with two different groups, the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir and Derby A Cappella, and they have kindly offered to present a concert to raise money for Prostate Cancer U.K., which promotes awareness of the disease and funds research into new, potentially lifesaving, treatments.

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.  According to Prostate Cancer UK, there are now more men who die from prostate cancer every year in the UK, than women who die from breast cancer. It means the male-only disease is now the third most common cancer from which to die, after lung and bowel cancer.

Survival rates are improving but one man dies of prostate cancer every 45 minutes.

The concert will be on Saturday 26 October at 7:00 p.m. at St. Alkmund’s Church in Duffield, DE56 4BA.

Admission will be free, but there will be a retiring collection, where I hope that the new issue £5 & £10 notes will slip easily out of people’s pockets into the collection buckets.

Your support will be greatly appreciated.

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.

Belper’s Lost Industries Walk

This circular walk around Belper looks at the various lost industries of the world's first cotton mill town. It begins with the cotton mills built by the Strutt family at the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution, with a slight diversion to include the picturesque weir on the river, followed by a look at the houses the family built for their workers. From there, the walk looks at the nail-making industry that pre-dated the arrival of the cotton mills, plus the other industries which once provided employment for the town, including hosiery, confectionery, chemicals and engineering.

Distance: 2.8 miles. Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: The Triangle (junction of A6 Bridge Street and A517 Bridgefoot),

Belper, Derbyshire. – Start time: 10:00am.
