Tour DerbyshireDerbyshire (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) The Derbyshire Peak District makes a dramatic setting for some of England's finest buildings: the rambling medieval Haddon Hall, the great ducal seat and park at Chatsworth, and the amazing late Georgian mills at Cromford and Calver. Hardwick, Kedleston and Bolsover add to the register of great country houses, while the architecture of high spa towns, Matlock and Buxton, creates its own special atmosphere. Less well known are Derby itself, with its Georgian cathedral, and the gentler country to the south, where Repton and Melbourne preserve unusually eloquent Anglo-Saxon and Norman church buildings.

Peak District Mountain Bike GuideMountain Bike Guide: Quality Routes in the Peak District and Derbyshire The region covered by the Peak District National Park and the county of Derbyshire is without doubt one of the finest areas of England to explore by mountain bike. It extends from the gentle, intricate farmland of the south to the stark and dramatic hills of the north where ‘Great winds blow over miles and miles of ling and bog and black rock, and the curlews still go crying in that empty air as they did before the Romans came.’ Tour Derbyshire.

Ghosts of DerbyGhosts of Derby Derby the Ghost Capital of England? It is an intriguing thought. Now two local men, one a specialist in matters supernatural, the other a local historian with a particular interest in the subject, have joined forces to produce Ghosts of Derby, a guide to the city's spookiest sites, where ghostly presences are felt and where, sometimes, things actually do go 'bump in the night'. Here we read about ghosts from the nation's history who found their way to Derby, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Mary, Queen of Scots for instance, tormented souls, holy ghosts, surgical spirits, Derby has its share of haunted hospitals, commercial ghosts, they haunt our shops and offices and haunted inns. There is also a glossary to help the reader know more about what kind of ghosts they might expect to encounter on a trip around Derby's haunted buildings. The result is a fascinating account of a city which, by all accounts, has more ghostly occurrences than even somewhere like York. It will appeal to anyone interested in the history of Derby and, of course, to anyone who believes in ghosts.

Derby GuideDerby Our City Many books have been devoted to the history of Derby, but until now none have presented the people's perspective. Derby - Our City takes a fresh approach, presenting new information and sweeping away many misconceptions.

A comprehensive description is given of how each name originated, thereby bringing to life the rich tapestry of history that has shaped Derbyshire over the centuries.

It is attractively illustrated with a selection of photographs.
