A project telling the story of Old Glossop from Saxon occupation through to the early 1900s is helping to bridge the generation gap.

High Peak Borough Council has appointed Audio Trails to develop the official heritage trail for Old Glossop to encourage people to explore, investigate, discuss and think about what is unique and important about the town’s history.

And pupils from Duke of Norfolk School have been finding out about the experiences of local residents Dorothy Thomasson and Rita Manzies, after recording their memories as part of the development of an audio trail element of the overall project.

Anyone with stories and memories to share can call Sarah Porru on 0845 129 7777 or email sarah.porru@highpeak.gov.uk.
