IDEAS GALORE TO ENHANCE VILLAGE
The initial response by villagers asked for their ideas for the Action Plan being formulated by Duffield Parish Council
was far-ranging and for the most part practical.
Their proposals included:
The introduction of parking restrictions to limit parking to two hours on Chapel Street together with bringing
into use the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway car park and other private car parks.
Cycle parking on Town Street and Eyes Meadow.
Improving bus shelters with seating and lighting
Commissioning a full report on the solutions to congestion and speeding and this to form he basis to lobby the
County Council to action the solutions,
Better placement of litter bins and more bins.
Erection of signs and plaques for significant buildings.
The development of the Gray Recreation Ground for young people over 12 years of age.
More village events.
Re-opening of the Public Toilets.
The Action Plan meeting last month was well attended. Over 100 people attended the Weston Centre to discuss the
Plan and 74 completed forms to help the Steering Group decide which projects should take priority.

Douglas Appleyard (Dublin, Ireland) is searching for information about Farrah Hall and Lord Scarsdale who lived there
in 17 and 1800s.
He asks: Are there any extant early photos of Farrah Hall, outside or inside?
Are there any good books about the area that might throw some light on the first half of 19th century?
Is there anyone who knows of Lord Scarsdale’s employment records?
If you assist Douglas in his search, please contact him via this email link.
