Lovers' Walks update

Lovers Walks sign 300pxWe are pleased to be able to confirm that the rock scaling works being undertaken by our contractor Rock Solutions Ltd on the section of rock face between Jubilee Bridge and Lovers' Walks will be completed by the end of this week.

We are also able to confirm that Jubilee Bridge and the play area will be opened for this weekend, 8th and 9th August, and the section of the walks between the play area and New Bridge in Derwent Gardens will be open in the next fortnight.

New Bridge will remain closed to enable further remedial works to be undertaken towards Willersley Castle and temporary fencing will be erected on the riverside at Lovers' Walks pending the installation of replacement fencing damaged during the course of the works.

Following weeks of uncertainty after the closure of the Lovers' Walks back in June we are delighted that we have been able to carry out the repair works as planned and that preparations for the 2015 Matlock Bath Illuminations, scheduled to run from 12 September to 31 October are continuing apace.
