Holymoorside Band is a non-contesting brass band based in the village of Holymoorside, which is located on the edge of the Peak District, 3 miles west of Chesterfield in North Derbyshire.
The vast majority of the band is made up from players who do not contest or have given up contesting but still want to continue to play in a brass band.
The band was formed with the coming of the mills to the village in the 1860s. The exact date is not recorded, but it is known that the band was in operation in some form in 1865 as they were due to play at the Grand Brass Band Contest at the Exhibition Palace, Dublin from 12th to 14th October of that year.
These unique riverside gardens have been offering visitors a tranquil setting to view the River Derwent for over 100 years. Located within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site adjacent to Strutt's historic North Mill the riverside promenade allows flat easy access to the gardens and riverside.
The beautiful gardens include shrubberies and colourful flowerbeds together with a central bandstand. A new featured play area offers children play facilities inspired by the history of Belper and the cotton mill industry of the world heritage site.
Rowing boats may be hired in the summer to take a trip along nearly three miles of the river and catch sight of a variety of bird life. Throughout the summer months there are band concerts, outdoor theatre and other special events in the grounds.

Boat house & Rowing Boats
