Hope in Derbyshire is a village with Roman foundations, and built in the iconic landscape of the Derbyshire Peak District, made famous in Jane Austen‘s world-famous romantic novel Pride and Prejudice. Pemberley House in Derbyshire was the seat of Mr Darcy, the male protagonist playing to Elizabeth Bennet‘s female lead.
Hope village practices the pagan tradition of well dressing, also called well flowering, when the source of pure water is honoured by decorating it with summer flowers.
All change at Hope Station
Hope Railway Station was constructed in 1894 and continues the tradition of cast iron building technology of the era, initially promoted by the great Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. One of Brunel’s greatest achievements is the wide curved roof of Paddington Mainline Station in London, the terminus of the early Great Western Railway, which extended to Neyland in South Wales, where travellers could join an international steamer to New York. The beautiful cast iron-supports provide the frame for glass roof panels to let in natural light. These days, train services run from Hope Village to Sheffield and Manchester. The Hope Valley Line, a trans-Pennine route, may not be as glamorous as London Paddington to New York, but it is a treasure trove of railway architecture history and breath-taking scenery.
