Weekend Picks: Belper's Wartime Secret

Belper’s Wartime Secret: Sunday 10th January (Shortlands, Derbyshire)

Credit: Adrian Brown

Join a three and a half mile circular walk around the Derbyshire town of Belper this weekend and learn about the vital role the town played in the Second World War. Tours will be led by a guide with over 25 years experience looking at historic locations and companies that were significant during the war.

People think they know the history of Belper, but the truth is that few really know just what went off in the town during the Second World War. Even those who were living in the town during the War are very surprised to find out about the often secret events that took place right underneath their noses."
