Parkwood Springs closed Landfill siteGeneral

Posted by Neill Fri, June 15, 2018 10:45:58

Hi. The Friends of Parkwood Springs are having a guided site visit of the closed Landfill site, next Wednesday (June 20th) at 2pm. It will be a good opportunity to find out how Viridor are restoring the site with new paths and planting, and to see the spectacular views from the top.
If you are interested, please let me know on 0777 156 4883. (We need to know in advance - bookings only.)
We meet in time to set off at 2pm from the Viridor offices on Parkwood Road, S3 8AG. You will need stout footwear, and there are some fairly steep gradients.

Closing lane to trafficGeneral

Hi everyone

Derbyshire council are consulting about prohibiting motor vehicles from a lane near Stoney Middleton know as Jacob's Ladder. The proposal could use your support.

You can see the details and answer a questionnaire on the consultation web page.

Hello Fixiteers;
Because so many people are away in June we will schedule the next Fixit for the third Monday which is the 18th.
Tony may find a job for us but if not we will return to The Porter Valley, park in the car park at WireMill Dam and work on improving the drainage channels leading up to Forge Dam.
Look out for a possible update which I will blog if Tony comes up with an alternative to the above.
Happy Holidaying with no incidents!

We need to finish off the steps, do a cutback and some drainage work.

Bring cutting tools. Tony will bring what we need for the drainage work.

Parking as before on that ccrner by the steps.
