Matlock Parks

The preparation of a strategy and masterplan for the restoration and reinvigoration of a chain of 5 historic parks in the Derwent Valley, Derbyshire Dales. Extensive historical research into the original design intentions of this unique complex of parks was combined with detailed analysis of the needs and aspirations of the community and visitors, as well as the international significance of the habitat and geology of the area. A complex design strategy was developed to balance these widely differing elements, that ultimately formed the basis for a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for 2.2m of funding.
