National Lottery cash set to promote the Peak District

Have your say

Residents will soon be able to explore the Peak District through their phone thanks to a £869,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant to Derbyshire County Council.

The cash will be used to develop three new projects at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery to promote the heritage of the Peak District, including developing 12 digital tours.

Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Communities, Councillor Dave Allen, said: “The use of new technology will mean visitors can get information from new touch screens in the museum as well as via their own smart phones and tablets for a more interactive experience alongside improved online information for people to access anywhere. “

Work on the project is due start on March 1.
