Snow is one of those things – you love it or you hate it, but there is no doubt that it looks beautiful. If you have ever had the chance to visit The Peak District with a sheet of perfect, untouched snow, you’re lucky enough to experience beauty at its finest. However, with or without snow, The Peak District is simply a beauty in itself…
Derbyshire on Film – The Peak District captures the charm and grace of the spectacular National Park through both professional and amateur footage, enhanced and re-edited for your viewing pleasure.
As well as the sights, of course, through Derbyshire on Film, you are able to relive such historic moments as the flooding of Derwent Village and Ashopton to make way for Ladybower Reservoir, as narrated by ATV’s Gwyn Richards. Some of the images will be familiar to many, such as Dovedale Stepping Stones which have barely changed since 1938, but others provide a ghostly vision of what once was. Hear memories of those who took park in the mass trespass of 1932 and take a charming look back at Chatsworth and Haddon Hall in the 1960’s.
Even keeping on theme with the season, witness the blizzards of 1938 and hear the snow poem by Derbyshire poet Mark Gywnne Jones.
Derbyshire on Film – The Peak District, is produced and edited by acclaimed filmmaker Andy McKay, collaborating with the University of Lincoln’s School of Film and Media, provides old and young alike with a beautiful journey through the equally as beautiful National Park. Anyone who has a passion for the Peak District and Derbyshire will no doubt be tranfixed by some of these rarely seen images which are now released on DVD for many to see and enjoy.
