    Ambergate Hydro open day

    Saturday 7th February 10.00 a.m. - 2.00 p.m.

    We have arranged an open day at the Lichfield Group site (Wire Works) on Matlock Road - DE56 2HE. Please do come along and have a look at our plans. We'll be taking groups of visitors on guided walks around the site to view the intake and tail race areas so you get a better idea of how it will work. We have also produced a survey to test support for the project locally - see our Ambergate Hydro page.
