Derbyshire Life - - Society -

The in­au­gu­ral pre­sen­ta­tion event for the Der­byshire His­toric Build­ings Trust’s (DHBT) Ar­chi­tec­ture Awards took place in early Novem­ber at El­vas­ton Cas­tle. Nom­i­nees gath­ered for tea and cakes be­fore the awards cer­e­mony in the im­pres­sive Hall of the Fair Star.

Derek Latham wel­comed ev­ery­one to the event, ex­plain­ing the his­tory of DHBT and stress­ing that new mem­bers are al­ways wel­come. Oliver Ger­rish then opened the awards and in­tro­duced the for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive of Crom­ford Mills, Sarah Mcleod, to make the pre­sen­ta­tions. Sarah now works as CEO of the Went­worth Wood­house Preser­va­tion Trust. A spe­cial award for the out­stand­ing over­all project was pre­sented in mem­ory of the late Deb­o­rah Cavendish, Duchess of Devon­shire, who was a keen sup­porter of the Trust, by her daugh­ter Lady Sophia To­p­ley.
