Derbyshire, and the beautiful Lumsdale Valley set the scene for this year’s SPAB Working Party.
Once a hive of industry, the site, dating from the C17, has gradually softened into wilderness. Our task was to prolong its life as a ‘romantic ruin’.
So warmly welcomed by the whole community, The Lumsdale Committee of the Arkwright Society did a stellar task of rewarding our efforts and making us feel welcome and appreciated in equal measure.
What a pleasure and a privilege to spend such a week working along-side so many talented and passionate people!
