Within the Amber Valley situated in the heart of Derbyshire is Ripley, a historical yet tranquil town close to Nottingham, as it lies to its north sandwiched between Derby, Mansfield and Stoke-on-Trent. With cities like these not too far away you should never be short of something to do. Ripley itself though has a wealth of activities to keep you busy too.
The town of Ripley itself is famous for a number of industries, varying from coal-mining to steelworks over the years. It has been industrialised for many years now providing the surrounding area with much of its resources throughout the centuries. Although this isn’t so prominent now, it still holds a rich and vibrant past.
You can find a variety of different streets within the area such as Wellington Street. It is here that the renowned local radio station Amber Sound FM lies. Another popular street would include Wood Street as it is here that one of the oldest Methodist churches is still situated to this very day holding a vast amount of history within its walls.
There are plenty of attractions in the area that you can visit whilst you are there, or even to offer fun days out for the whole family. There’s the Midland Railway in Butterly nearby that preserves locomotives for you to either come to learn about or take a ride upon. You also have the park nearby in Butterly as well which offers scenic views and walks in the countryside. There is also the Butterly reservoir you can take a trip to and maybe have a picnic.
