The NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARBORETUM welcomes over 300,000 visitors to site each year, including over 20,000 young people for formal and informal learning visits. Visitors can enjoy discovering over 400 memorials nestled amongst some 25,000 trees, experience riverside walks and participate in a wide variety of daily activities: guided walks, land train tours, memorial talks, exhibitions, and buggy tours.

A visit to the City of Litchfield- A rich and varied history awaits From Lichfield's medieval cathedral and the Georgian museums in the city centre, through to regiment and heritage railway museums and more across the district - there is so much history to discover. WE VISIT the beautiful, historic village of Eyam (pronounced 'eem'), in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England which became famous after the Black Death of 1665 and 1666. An outbreak of the plague was contained when the villagers decided to isolate themselves from the surrounding communities. Many people in the village died. It is also known that some of the village population were genetically unique and naturally immune to this very deadly disease. There are still descendants of this line in Eyam. Village life in Britain has changed considerably in the past fifty years, and many villages have emptied as people moved away to the towns. Eyam however still has a vibrant community and thriving businesses.

Bakewell - Idyllically situated on the banks of the river Wye, the biggest town in the Peak District National Park's mellow stone buildings, medieval five-arched stone bridge and quaint courtyards are a magnet for painters, photographers and sightseers alike. Legend has it that the town's famous Bakewell Pudding was created by mistake by a local cook in the mid-19th century. Today her delectable 'jam tart that went wrong' can be sampled at various bakeries and cafés and posted virtually anywhere in the world!   AND A visit to the neighbouring towns of Matlock and Matlock Bath occupying a beautiful position in a stunning limestone valley.


The market is one of the largest open-air markets in the country, it has been held in Chesterfield since at least 1165.
