The purpose of this book is hopefully for it to be a mini guide to the rich heritage and history of the City of Derby which after reading will inspire and educate its people and then the rest of the world.
Not many cities can claim two thousand years of history, let alone have one as diverse and interesting as ours. We have all the ingredients to attract visitors into our city and yet for some reason we tend to keep it under our hat. With our location as the most central city in Great Britain, Derby is such an easy place to reach. Not only should we be a major tourist centre but also a major conference centre. Everyone passes through our city on their way to somewhere else. They don’t stop because they don’t think there is anything worth seeing.
