Close your eyes, open your mind, and let me take you into Belper Parks, a green jewel in the historic centre of Belper, a bustling market town in Derbyshire's world renowned Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.
Stretched before you is a pleasing mix of 50 acres of varied grassland, deciduous woodland and all important pockets of scrub land, together with a bluebell wood, a wildflower meadow and a babbling stream called the "Coppice Brook."
Welcome to the Friends of Belper Parks Web site
Friends of Belper Parks Ltd. have been given £121,000 to buy The Forge, Codnor Park to save the 71 acre site from being built on yet again when after 18 years of neglect it has begun to revert back to the green open space it was 200 years ago.
Friends of Belper Parks Ltd. Is now an HMRC approved charity
