The memories of an historic site were brought to life for club members in a talk.

Peter Machan sparked the interest of Bakewell and District Probus Club at a recent meeting at the Devonshire Arms, in Baslow.

The guest speaker told his audience about Sheffield Manor Lodge, off Sheffield Parkway.

He used a slide show featuring images of glass windows to show off the building’s exciting history, including the imprisonment of Mary Queen of Scots in the 1500s.

Club member Malcolm Fordyce thanked the speaker for his insightful words.

Bakewell and District Probus Club has currently got six vacancies for membership.

Anyone interested in joining can call the club secretary, Ainslie Kelly, on 01246 582933.
