A Walk Around my village.

Ellastone and Norbury Hollow.

Hi, I’m David from Market Town Meanders. Join me on a 2-hour guided leisurely amble around my quintessentially English village of Ellastone including Norbury Hollow. Explore its history from 9th century Saxon times, through the middle ages, a monastic abbey and a manor house and other buildings of interest to the present day. Understand how the modern-day settlement has evolved including the coming and going of a railway. You will see how they used waterpower a couple of hundred years ago compared to the modern hydro in use today.

Features include:

  • Listed buildings and churches
  • Walk along the River Dove to view the hydroelectric scheme and fish ladder
  • Discover local associations with George Elliot and Frederick Handel
  • Ancient quarry source of stone for Calwich Abbey
  • Explore off the beaten track on local footpaths. NB There are some stiles and the countryside can be muddy, participating in this tour is at your own risk, but please wear sensible footwear, and bring a waterproof.

Cost is £10 per person
