Derby Street Performers

Throughout the Derby City Centre you get lots of street performers. This American Indian musician caught my eye and sounded very good with his pan pipe and flute music.

Modern Architecture in Derby

I have spent a bit of time in Derby recently, so I thought I would take the camera and explore the area a bit more. Derby is the nearest city to Belper and offers all the modern city conveniences that you need for a small town like Belper. There has been a lot of regeneration of Derby recently with the construction of the Derby Quad Cinema, and the new Derby Bus Station.

Towards the top of Belper, past the Parks Estate and on from Bargate Road, there is a little village called Holbrook. In Holbrook is one of my favourite pubs, the Dead Poets, they do an amazing selection of Beers and Ciders in there.
