Standing as it does virtually at the centre of Derbyshire, about two miles to the south of the Peak District National Park boundary, Wirksworth is a small historic town which is now a thriving arts venue with an annual festival in September. The town is surrounded by beautiful countryside and offers splendid walking and cycling opportunities as well as fun water activities. Individual shops, restaurants, a real ale bar and an independent cinema surround the market place in the heart of the town and are all a few minutesí walk from Agricola house. Explore the steep terraces, narrow streets and alleyways in this historic town which was once one of the most important lead mining centres in England.
