This view of the Parade, the Jubilee Bridge and the River Derwent

2. The bottom of Holme Road, looking towards the Midland Hotel and
the bridge that leads to
Matlock Bath Station, photographed in September
The archway next to the house with the green door leads to what was
the former lock up.
On the right, at the very bottom, was a drapers. Next to it is a single
storey shop that was
for many years a butchers. The Hardy family were here and in the 1950s
it was run by Mr. Carline.
On the right of the railings is a short driveway that bends round
towards what used to be
the entrance of a snooker club. It was also led to the former workshop
of Frank Clay, the web mistress's father,
and where the many set pieces for Matlock Bath's Venetian Fête
were produced in the 1950s.
The building (not shown) has been converted and is now a private home.
3. The former Hooton's shop on the corner of Holme Road and Brunswood
Although this is now
used as a store this used to be a greengrocers and,
for many years, it was run by Mrs. Hooton. She used to sit outside
on sunny days.
