Past Matlock & Matlock Bath photographers

A photograph by Mr. John William Hilder[1], dating from about 1900, used in a booklet for the New Bath Hotel (see the previous page). The picture was taken at the edge of the Cumberland Field[2], quite close to the Wapping, and looks both across to Cat Tor and down into the valley. Holy Trinity Church is on the left and there is then a group of larger buildings that includes the New Bath Hotel. The row of terraced houses on the right are on Derby Road and were then known as Woodland Terrace.
