NATIONAL Trust places across Derbyshire are revealing new stories, secrets and spaces at the start of 2013.
Visitors to Calke Abbey, near Ticknall, can explore the lost landscape of the limeyards, once the site of a bustling industry, on a new discovery trail.
The team at Hardwick Hall are inviting people to join them as they go round closing curtains and turning off lights on a new end of day tour.
There are new walks to enjoy and fresh views to take in, new recipes to try, untold stories to hear and the chance to see some of the amazing objects in the Trust’s collection and parts of the organisation’s places that are normally hidden from view.
There are also new objects on display in the Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall. Once a month visitors will also be able to visit the normally closed Chintz Bedroom to find out more about the Trust’s conservation work.
