We have been supported by many of Wirksworth’s talented photographers in providing images for this site & our social media pages. Special thanks go to Phil Richards, Robin Stokes, Alison Streets, David Hawkes, Emma Tattersall,  Alan Matkin, Steve Fox, members of the Wirksworth Images Past & Present Facebook group, the Destination Wirksworth Flickr Group, and of course, the kind businesses and individuals who have provided their work, free of charge, for our wonderful community. Many thanks!

Our huge appreciation once again to all of the sponsors of the site, including contributions from The Exton Trust, New Opportunities Wirksworth, Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, Wirksworth Open Gardens, Wirksworth Town Council, the Wirksworth Transition Initiative and many Wirksworth businesses. We could’t have done it without you!

Gavin Munro, Chris Tebb and the wonderful John Hobson have gone far beyond their duties to help this to get going… We are so amazed by your professionalism and skill. Thank you!

The hard work and dedication of the Wirksworth on Web Committee must also be mentioned – Alison Clamp, Neil Ferguson-Lee, Mary Ann Hooper & Andy Jordan helped to keep the momentum, support and positivity for the project going. You are wonderful!

All the best from
