Video Six: "Driving Through Derbyshire" including Belper

Updated: Tuesday, July 26, 2017   |   Belper Historical & Genealogical Website

This Youtube video is again by Andy Savage who has created an interesting car ride in time-lapse video through Milford and Belper.

Andy says: Are you an ex-pat of Derbyshire, feeling homesick? Or perhaps you just want a clear way of giving someone directions to a location in Derbyshire or want to show people your village. Well in this video and the many others I have made, you will be able to take a virtual drive around the streets as though you were in the driving seat. I use a dash-mounted camera. Traffic lights and heavy traffic have been edited out.

This is a journey through the Derbyshire village of Milford and the Town of Belper. Click the "watch in high quality" link below the video.
