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 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.

Charity Halloween event

Each year on Halloween evening only, being the 31st Oct, we hold an event for all the local and non local trick and treaters, it’s not a huge professionally run event but more a small private event with a personal touch, held on our driveway.

I erect four large gazebos, with a creepy crypt like entrance, the inside is made up of a series of darkened passages filled with animatronic props that all come to life, along with laser lights, smoke machines and scary music, along with family and friends all dressed up for the part so adults can’t tell what is real and what’s not.

At the exit Children are given a sweet bag as a treat and adults are offered the chance to purchase refreshments.

We don’t charge a fee to walk through but do make it clear it’s a donation charity event, I wouldn’t want a child out trick or treating to miss out because mummy or daddy is to tight to donate 😡

This year we are raising for Children In Need as apposed to derby children’s hospital whom we raised for last year.

BBC radio derby who are our local representatives for the charity have shown great excitement in our event and are lending us a real Pudsey Bear suit and have also said there’s a possibility of sending a team down on the day to cover the event, also two local editors of Belper News and kilburns All Things Local have agreed to run an advertising page for us. So we are hoping for even more visitors this year.

In the four years we have resided at this address, our event has grown in popularity from a few visitors the first year to last year having given away in excess of two hundred sweet bags.

If you would like to cover our event on your web page it may hopefully attract even more visitors .

Please feel free to contact myself or my partner if you need any more information. – Gary...07899924028 / Lesley..07825877028

The address for the event is 17 Rawson Green, Kilburn, Belper, Derby. DE56 0LN
