Residents are being invited to have their say on Bradwell Conservation Area.

Five changes to the area are proposed in the Peak District National Park Authority’s draft appraisal, which is available for public consultation until February 21.

The area was originally designated in 1976 to protect historic features that make it a special place, such as limestone cottages built in a haphazard layout of winding lanes.

Originally a Hope Valley farming, lead mining and craft settlement, it later developed into light industry, with the Bradda Beaver hard hat one of its most well-known products.

The document proposes to include part of an ancient medieval field system bounded by Hugh Lane, Town Lane and Granby Road, Beggar’s Plot and Brook Barn in the conservation area and exclude Rock Bottom.

Residents can talk to conservation officers at the Memorial Hall, on Netherside, Bradwell, on Tuesday February 11, between 4.30pm and 7.30pm. The document can be viewed at peakdistrict.gov.uk/bradwellconservation or the authority’s headquarters at Aldern House, on Baslow Road, Bakewell.
