The Launch Of A Trio Of Videos From Peak District Online - A Treat & A Triumph of Derbyshire Delight!
Peak District TV are very proud to launch their brand new triumvirate of TV holiday destinations, all celebrating the White Peak - by day and by night, with poetry and perfectly poised music. Put your feet up and escape for a while.
'December in Hartington' begins with the promise of something special- a Peak District video with a difference this time, with the calm soothing voice of a poet dictating his story. The poem depicts the silence of the night and it is refreshing to see Hartington at peace and in the dark. Gone are the sightseers and the walkers, the crowds of people who flock to see the chocolate box village in the day. Slightly spooky but never full on scary, viewing the village so quiet and in the dead of night is to see a sight only the residents can cherish. As dawn approaches, we feel the true time of year unfold in the frost covered patchwork fields, the winter mist shrouding the village as the valley gently slopes around it, enveloping Hartington in its warm arms.
And then we discover a lesser-known part of the Derbyshire Dales, basking in the sunlight in the second video today. The drama of the White Peak is portrayed here- a little place called Wolfscote Dale. With its sheer ivory walls rising dramatically above the meandering river below, it's hard to equate the ferocious name to such a serene part of the Peak District. With mysterious caves, grassy knolls and copses of trees stood proud, bewildering us how they cling on to the limestone so old, it's a Dale that's a stage set for at walker's pleasure. To wander along the river, sometimes fierce in Winter, it's stroll of pleasure on a warm Summer's day.

Tissington Hall in all its glory is the first thing we see in the third video, all about a little village with trail attached to its name. Like a scene out of a Brontë novel, the hall is made up of the limestone which makes this part of Derbyshire so resplendent. Considered to be one of the most picturesque villages in Britain, the video certainly highlights its merits for all to see. It would be quite easy to imagine the gentry driving past in bygone days, in horse and carriage - the village doesn't seem to have fully embraced its time. With tradition still ongoing, Tissington is an evocative place to make your own memories now.
With treble the ambience and thrice the flavour - these are three videos to tantalise the taste buds! See the White Peak in all its alabaster majesty -we hope you enjoy the treat.
