Valiant efforts have been made today to make safe walkways on the platforms at Wirksworth and Duffield with some success. The work at Wirksworth will make a contribution to next weekends Santa trains if the white stuff lingers through the week.
Obviously the pointwork around Wirksworth Yard is under snow and it would be useful if any of you can reach the station tomorrow to begin the process of clearing, again with next week's activities in mind.
We are having some work done in our kitchen as a result of water damage and the builder produced an example of some china ware he had come across. I attach a photo which may prompt one of you to comment on its origins.
