Derbyshire Tour 2018|
Sunday 2nd to Thursday
6th September 2018
The next V8 Tour in the popular series will be
based in Derbyshire. The event will include touring the beautiful scenic routes
around the Derbyshire dales. There will be a tour of the Peak District National
Park, visiting both Derbyshire White Peak and Dark Peak.
We hope to visit:
Hall. Described by Simon Jenkins in "1000 Best Houses" as "the
most perfect house to survive from the middle ages". Set in the heart of
the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th
Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced gardens, and overlooking
the River Wye. More
Hall and Gardens. Home to The Sitwell Family. Perhaps the most famed of the
Sitwells were the literary trio of Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell Sitwell, who
played a huge part in the artistic and literary world in the early part of the
last century:Dame Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964) was a grandly eccentric
and novelist, Sir Osbert Sitwell (1892-1969) wrote prose, poetry and also many
short stories and novels and Sir Sacheverell Sitwell (1897-1988) was well known
for his work on art, architecture, ballet and travel. More
Tramway Village. Home to the National Tramway Museum, providing a trip back
to a bygone age. Vintage trams transport you along the traditional street into
open countryside with breathtaking views of the Derwent Valley. More
Pottery Village. A behind the scenes tour of the historic working factory
to meet the skilled crafts people who have been producing quality Denby for over
200 years. More
