A varied programme of activities was scheduled ranging from visting Arkwrights first mill at Cromford to the Barnett Observatory at Newbold and from Chesterfield FC’s new stadium to the Barrow Hill Roundhouse.

The six-night visit ended with a meal and music at CoCo Bistro on Corporation Street.

Ottilie Walsh, the Darmstadt co-ordinator, thanked the group’s hosts and added: “We’ve had a fantastic week; such a varied programme of activities and great weather to go with it. For many people this was their first visit to the area - all are keen to return to see more of the beautiful county of Derbyshire.”
