Thread Name: The Jarrow March
Subject: RE: Folklore: I have to ask the Brits-The Jarrow March
The English probably called their Derbyshire place after the Canadian one. Matlock bath is a sort of popular spa resort. It became popular at the height of Victorian triumphalism. The Heights are situated at the top of very high cliffs overlooking the River Derwent.You reach the Heights by cable car.

I haven't been because Denise is scared of heights. The views are said to be from the top of the cliffs and the cable car absolutely stunning over Derbyshire. Apparently its worth a visit - particularly if you've got kids. Theres a little fairground, a nice restaurant, a shop.
