Flower Delivery to Derbyshire by Clare Florist
It doesn't matter if you visit for a family day out, a short break or a long holiday, Derbyshire is a great place to come to thanks to a variety of scenery as well as a wide array of things to do and places to visit. A substantial portion of the Peak District National Park lies within Derbyshire.
Derbyshire is located in the East Midlands of England. The southern part of the Pennine range of hills reach into the northern part of the county. The county also contains part of the National Forest, and to its northwest it borders on Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire to its north, South Yorkshire to the northeast, Nottinghamshire to the east, Leicestershire to the southeast, Staffordshire to the west and southwest and Cheshire to the west.
Derbyshire was first visited by humans 200,000 years ago during the Aveley interglacial. Evidence of this can be traced to a Middle Paleolithic Acheulian hand axe found near Hopton.
Further occupation happened during the Upper Paleolithic and Neolithic periods of the Stone Age when Mesolithic hunder gatherers roamed the hilly tundra. Evidence of these tribes being in the area can be traced to the limestone caves located on the Nottinghamshire border. There are also burial mounds of Neolithic settlers scattered throughout the county.
Real signs of agriculture and settlement were first recorded in the Bronze Age. Signs of clearance, arable fields and hut circles were discovered after archaeological investigation in the moors of the Peak District.
The lead ore in the limestone hills of the area were the main reason invaders were attracted to Derbyshire during the Roman invasion. The Romans settled throughout the county and built forts near Brough in the Hope Valley and near Glossop. They also settled around Buxton, which is known for its warm springs. They also set up a fort near modern-day Derby in what is now known as Little Chester.
A number of kings of Mercia were also buried in the Repton area.
After the Norman Conquest, most parts of the county were subjected to the forest laws. The Forest of High Peak to the northwest was put under the custodianship of William Peverel and his descendants. The rest of the county was bestowed to Henry de Ferrers, and part of it became Duffield Frith.
Calke Abbey Garden – Calke Abbey is the story of the dramatic decline of a country house estate. Here, you can discover the tales of an eccentric family who gathered a vast collection of hidden treasures. A highlight is the beautiful walled gardens which is a site for flowers in Derbyshire. Also worth exploring are the orangery, auricula theatre and the kitchen gardens.
Cascades Gardens – This is a fascinating garden to visit in Derbyshire as its filled with formal perennial beds, water gardens, a winter garden and vegetable patch. Going to the cliff top also offers spectacular views.
Chatsworth Garden – This garden covers 105 acres and has evolved for more than 450 years. The garden includes famous waterworks including the 300 year old Cascade, the trough waterfall and the gravity-fed Emperor fountain. The garden also has several Derbyshire flowers present in the rose, cottage and kitchen gardens.
Haddon Hall Garden – Haddon Hall is an English country house that is an absolute gem. The exterior walls of the house are adorned with climbing roses. The house also boasts of a beautiful terraced garden.
Lea Gardens – This is a woodland garden that specialises in rhododendrons, azaleas and kalmias.
Renishaw Hall Garden – Features an Italianate garden that was laid out by Sir George Sitwell.
A 2002 campaign by Plantlife called upon members of the public to nominate the native wildflower they felt best represented their county. As a result of this, Derbyshire has since been paired with the Jacob's Ladder, also known by its scientific name, 'Polemonium caeruleum.'
Derbyshire is also a great place to come for a romantic trip. Thanks to an abundance of parks and gardens, you have lots of choices when it comes to taking a romantic stroll. You can start of the trip right when you send flowers to Derbyshire, go out for a meal then head out to the many attractions in the county.
