Derby

Architecture

The group has the primary aim of visiting or discussing areas of architectural interest. It meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 1pm.

October’s visit was to the Friargate Conservation Area, where Derby’s best examples of Georgian and Regency architecture can be viewed. Joseph Pickford’s name and career is closely tied up with the built environment between Ford Street and Ashbourne Road, and unusual views like the old prison entrance at the top of Vernon Street challenge conventional assessments of what makes Derby special.

The Architecture Group’s next meeting on December 16 will be in CURC at 1pm, with the topic to be decided.
