About the Event
Lees Meadow Farm is a superb base to explore the charming Derbyshire Dales. The Victorian town of Matlock Bath has been likened to an inland seaside resort, complete with arcades, fish & chips and ice cream. The town nestles in a steep sided gorge alongside the fast-running River Derwent, with cable cars running overhead, taking vistors to the Heights Of Abraham, a 60-acre hilltop park, with cavern tours, exhibitions and adventure play. Thrill-seekers can enjoy adremaline-filled rides and amazing attractions at Gulliver's Kingdom theme park.
The nearby A6 makes Lees Meadown Farm well-placed to explore the Derbyshire Dales. Nearly Black Rocks is an imposing rock formation with specatcular views across Derbyshire, the National Stone Centre, a SSSI, which tells the story of stone and how it helped shape our industry. Further along the A6 finds the village of Crich with its famous Tramway Village, an open air festival of nostalgia, with historicl street settings and take a trip on a vintage tram. Whilst in nostalgic mood, why not take a tour of the Great British Car Journey, a collection of vehicles from the classic days of British automotive.
Cromford is a fascinating village, famed as the foundation of the industrial revolution and created by the famous industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright, to provide labour and natural resources for his 18th century cotton mills nearby. Cromford Mills is part of the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO world heritage site, now an interesting vistor attraction.
the High Peak trail can be accessed directly from the site, offering a traddic-free route along the old good railway stretching from Cromford high into the peaks. Today, the leisure tail is popular with walkers and cyclists, with visitor centres and a bike hire adjacent to the THS.
