Work off Christmas weight

THERE’S a chance to work off some of the extra pounds you’ll be putting on over Christmas – and learn about one of the East Midlands’ most historic communities – this Boxing Day and New’s Year’s Day.

Strutt’s North Mill at Belper has planned two heritage walks which will give people a chance to get some gentle exercise and learn why Belper is the only town in the region with World Heritage Status.

At 2.30pm on December 26, from the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre in Strutt’s North Mill, there will be a guided walk of the historic town. At the same time and same starting point on January 1, there will be a different walk around the town.

Both walks cost £3 per person, and will include a free warm drink to finish off the journey. No booking is needed – just turn up.
