Marine life in Matlock

Visitors to a Dales attraction will be able to enjoy a taste of the seaside – despite being miles about from the coast.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is hosting a Marine Mayhem Day at the Whistlestop Centre, in Matlock Bath Railway Station.

The event will take place on Friday, August 10 between 11am and 4pm and will feature a host of marine–related activities including crafts, a rock pool and river dipping sessions.

Entry is £3 per child and they will need to bring outdoor clothing.

The river dipping sessions will run at 11.30am and 2pm.

Numbers are limited, so people are advised to book a place as early as possible by calling the wildlife trust on 01773 881188.
