CHAD Audio Guides is to return for a brand new series to take you on another fascinating journey around a new collection of North Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire’s finest tourist attractions.

Throughout the three-CD series, host Stephen Thirkill brings you an intoxicating flavour of the sights, sounds, charm and history of seven of the region’s most loved visitor hot-spots.

History-loving Stephen takes a dramatic step back in time to find out more about the life and times of former Bolsover Castle owner Sir Charles Cavendish, and learns why Bess of Hardwick should be considered a modern day role-model to women during a special visit to Old Hardwick Hall.

Stephen also rolls back the years with Sutton Rambling Club during a walking tour of the picturesque Peak District, discovers why Rufford Abbey survived the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII and finds out how our Ice Age ancestors survived the deep freeze during an interesting visit to Creswell Crags.

Nature lovers are also in for a special trip when Stephen finds out more about the wildlife on show at the tranquil Sherwood Pines and the efforts being made to help native trees, flora and fauna survive and thrive at the always-popular Sherwood Forest.
