Derbyshire on Film – The Peak District has just been released and contains 80 minutes of archive films from the 1930s to 1980s. Some of the images will be familiar to many, such as Dovedale Stepping Stones which have barely changed since 1938. But other’s provide a ghostly vision of what once was. There is a beautful moment when a steam train billows out of the Monsal tunnel, along the Headtone Viaduct and through the valley. I rewound this moment quite a few times when I watched the DVD myself!

Other moments that are now simply memories captured on film and photographs are cotton spinning at Masson Mill and a look back to the flooding of Ashopton and Derwent Village to make way for Ladybower Reservoir.

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.
