A Coronation Street star came to Matlock Bath to switch on the famous illuminations in 1971.

Bernard Youens, who played Stan Ogden, is pictured here with Councillor Remo Tinti, who had been commentator at the lights for 18 years until he resigned in 1968.

Cllr Tinti was invited back to join in the festivities.
