Derby - City Centre
w/e 21 January 2018
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

We were in Derby and here are a few images from the city centre.

East Street

We crossed Morledge from the Bus Station into East Street and turned left into the Eagle Market building. Notice St Peter's Church tower at the far end of East Street - we would pass that later.
The Spot

After walking through the Eagle Market and Intu Centre we emerged onto The Spot which has recently been redeveloped with the removal of the public conveniences and the installation of four polished steel rings to celebrate "Derby’s engineering prowess in this contemporary piece of public art." (link to "On The Spot")
Babington Buildings

Proceeding along St Peter's Street we passed Waterstone's Book Shop housed in the more traditional Babington Buildings that date from 1898 when they were a Boot and Shoe Emporium.
St Peter's Street

A little further along St Peter's Street we passed St Peter's Church with East Street now joining from the right.
Boots Building

It doesn't matter how many times you go to Derby the Grade II listed former Boots Building with its statues of four famous Derbeians is always worth a look. Situated on the corner of East Street and St Peter's Street it currently houses the Costa Coffee Shop.
Corn Market

We crossed from St Peter's Street into the Corn Market where Derby Cathedral is prominent along Iron Gate.

Opposite St James' Street on the Corn Market is the Grade II listed arch into Lock Up Yard which gives access to the Indoor Market.

There's another access to the Indoor Market via the Guildhall which we passed next in the Market Place. Derby's war memorial stands across from the Guildhall with the Assembly Rooms on the other side of the Market Place.
Council House

We left the Market Place and walked along Corporation Street passing Derby City Council's headquarters, the Council House.
Eagle Market

Bus StationThis took us back to Morledge and the Eagle Market but this time we stayed on this side of the road and returned to the Bus Station (left) for the return journey home.

This has been only a brief look at just a few of the places around the city centre but for a more detailed and much longer route around Derby, I would point you in the direction of the Derby Heritage Walk on this site. One word of warning - I put that series together between 2010 and 2012 and, like at The Spot, there have been some changes in the intervening period.
