THE development of Bakewell Road has received a great deal of coverage in the press over recent months.
Rather than dwell over the issue, though, we thought it might be better to show a picture of the site as it was in the 1970’s – just to remind people of how much the area has been changed over the years anyway.
This photograph – which comes courtesy of Matlock resident Gill Brookes – shows the September fair in all its fantastical glory.
Taken from the side of The Railway pub, this shot shows what is now the Coop as the market it used to be.
And who know’s – maybe people will look fondly at what there is now on Bakewell Road in future years.
