Why not make a weekend of it and come and explore Derbyshire’s beautiful towns and villages and build in an artist trail? Here’s a little taster of Turnditch, one of the county’s featured villages and its artists.
Turnditch is a hillside village that lies on the A517 Belper to Ashbourne road on its steep climb out of the Ecclesbourne valley. Before it was turnpiked in 1764 this road was a track through the Duffield Firth, a former Royal hunting forest which consisted of dense woodland and stretches of sweeping open countryside.
The long, low aisle-less Turnditch Church of All Saints was built in the 13th century as a chapel of ease. It has been enlarged over the years, in 1882-84 and possibly in 1630, the date cut into a massive stone lintel above the south door.
The is one pub in Turnditch,  the Tiger. which is at least 150 years old.
All good reasons to spend some time exploring this village and meeting these artists.
