Ripley Heritage Day will bring together local organisations concerned with preserving and protecting Ripley’s links with the past.


This is also an opportunity to bring along those old photographs or documents that have lingered in the attic, and find out more about them, or even donate them so that they are preserved for the future.


There will be something for all heritage enthusiasts, whether their interest is in the Butterley Company, Codnor Castle, Midland Railway, the Cromford Canal, Revolution (of the Pentrich variety), entertainment (of the Ripley Operatic variety) or just the history of the town.


As well as displays and exhibits, Amber Valley Moviemakers will be on hand to show some rare old films of Ripley, and members of each group will happy to tell visitors more.


The Butterley Ironworks Trust will be focusing on the proposed development of the Butterley site, whilst Ripley and District Heritage Trust will be looking at the history of Ripley’s Co-op and life in the town during World War 2. There will even be the chance to taste cakes made to wartime recipes
