A 79–year–old woman’s garden has been out of bounds for six months after a mass amount of scaffolding was put up in it to support an historic wall.

Sheila Burton – whose house in Stoney Way, Matlock, is at the foot of the cliff, at the top of which sits St Giles Church – has not been able to get into her garden since workmen turned up to erect the immense structure in June.
