This is a fascinating documentary film, part historical document, part social history, and all with the charm we have come to expect from Gavin Repton’s extraordinary talent. The Lost Pubs of Wirksworth follows the tracing of as many pubs as possible in Gavin’s delightful home-town. This all stems from discovering a list dated 1840, listing over 50 pubs – now there are seven in the town centre. Gavin explores the cellars and tunnels of this fascinating town, and we learn rather more than we expected about this little hub of the industrial revolution, with illuminating interviews with townsfolk & visitors alike. Available at Wirksworth Heritage Centre.
Absolutely not to be missed!
