Enjoy the ride and the destination . . . .

. . . . . The idea behind this date is to coincide with the launch of the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway’s diesel weekend as well as the Wirksworth Midsummer Farmers Market.

. . . . . Destination Wirksworth is a new website that aims to showcase all the best places to eat, drink and visit in the town while giving up-to-date information on all upcoming events.

However, for anybody who has a keen interest in one of England’s oldest traditions – beer drinking – the Destination Wirksworth Real Ale Guide promises to be the definitive guide of all the best real ale in the area.

. . . .. The critical aim is that this initiative should boost tourism, trade, and indeed prosperity in Wirksworth and down the valley towards Duffield.

Neil Ferguson, brainchild of the Destination Wirksworth campaign, said: “The view is quite simple: if the railway prospers so will the area it covers. But if the places become popular in their own right – so will the railway.

“It’s been estimated that for every £1 spent on the railway it works out up to £3 being spent in the community.”

Many thanks for posting this Wyvern, the Destination Wirksworth website will be up tomorrow night and I shall post details here as soon as it's available, not least because it will have links to the beer guide.

Don't forget that this weekend is the EVR's diesel gala with 31414 and 33025 in service, while on Sunday, Shottle station will reopen to passengers after 65 years. There are at least two real ale pubs nearby so it's well worth a visit!

Gala details are here: http://www.e-v-r.com/junedieselweekend/

Kind regards,

Neil
