About the neighbourhood
A leaflet we picked up recently in the town (produced by the Wirksworth Civic & History Society) mentions the following features...<BR>- The Puzzle Gardens; a higgledey-piggledey collection of houses perched on the steep hillside above the Dale, and linked by a maze of footpaths. <BR>- The Wirksworth Fetival (September annually) including my favourite Art & Architecture weekend where around 70 homes open their doors to the public to show off their architecture, features, or as galleries for local artists and sculptors. <BR>- The High Peak Trail (start at Middleton Top); cycle or walk for up to 30 miles along this trail. (cycles can be hired from the Middleton Top visitor centre)<BR>- The National Stone Centre (great for Children's activities)<BR>... more
