Our Norfolk regional group volunteers report on a successful working party to carry out soft capping trials at a ruin
News - Working Parties
Now a peaceful wooded gorge, Lumsdale near Matlock in Derbyshire was once a hive of industry, harnessing the power of the falling water. Since the 1930s the site has become a romantic ruin, and is now cared for by local volunteers like Alan and Christine, who have published a history of this unique place.
Our event is going ahead this year, though with arrangements in place to ensure the safety of our volunteers, specialists and staff.
Working parties provide young people with the chance to learn practical skills and engage with professionals in a relaxed environment.
