The population of Matlock and surrounding area is about 30,000. Matlock, in the valley of the River Derwent, prospered when thermal springs were discovered three hundred years ago.
The Heights of Abraham, 750 ft above the town, are said to have been named by an officer who fought under General Wolfe, because of their resemblance to the heights sealed in the capture of Quebec.
At Riber, the 19th century castle, built by John Smedley, a textile manufacturer, was until the year 2000 a zoo, but this had to be closed down and is now residential; the Hall and Manor House of two centuries earlier stand in pleasing contrast.
At South Wingfield, 5 miles SE, are the historic ruins of the Manor House (note the tower and vaulted crypt), begun in 1440 and originally larger than Haddon, where Mary Queen of Scots was long imprisoned.
