Discover North East Derbyshire’s Hidden Gems

Protestors who changed the national landscape, wartime tragedies and icons of the industrial age - these are just some of the stories being uncovered as part of the Hidden Gems project.

The history and heritage of the district is being brought to life in a series of 16 audio trails being produced by North East Derbyshire District Council, thanks to £50,000 worth of funding from the Bolsover and North East Derbyshire (BNED) LEADER Approach.

This project follows these fascinating stories and allows residents to make new discoveries on their doorstep while pulling visitors into our towns and villages.

The trails are brought to life thanks to narration by, and interviews with, local people – guiding listeners along the trail.

They are available to download for free on to an mp3 player, mobile phone or iPhone (details below). Please click on the name of a trail on the right to find out more and download that trail.

See our guide below for details of our full range of trails, or click on the links on the right for more details.

The project builds on the success of two audio trails which have already been produced by the council for Ashover and Holmewood – available to download through the links on the right.

Find out more on the Audiotrails website.


The audio trails are produced by local, Higham-based company Audiotrails.
