Aqueduct Cottage Visit - Sunday 14th April 2024

On Sunday Ron Common and Ian Hooker led a tour of the historic Aqueduct Cottage.

Attendees enjoyed learning more about the cottage built around 1802 by Peter Nightingale, the great, great-uncle of Florence Nightingale.

Ron Common, the @derbyshirewildlifetrust Volunteer Project Manager, talked about the recently completed 4 year restoration project to authentically rebuild the cottage. This was, in no small part, thanks to the efforts of a steadfast group of volunteers.

The project has won several awards - including more than one at our recent Architecture Awards!

Many thanks to Ron and Ian for leading the tour on Sunday. A great restoration project to share on #worldheritageday
