Despite one walker being left behind at the start of the walk, another falling and breaking a bone, and one road death (poor badger), the survival rate for the walk was quite good. Below is the information I promised regarding the picturesque merits of Hope Cement Works.

Both Derby and Sheffield Art Galleries have works of art depicting the cement works. The one shown is in Derby Art Gallery and it’s called “Industrial Landscape, Hope Valley, Derbyshire” by Harry Epworth Allen (1894-1958). Available to view at https:/artuk.org/discover/artworks
