"Contrasting Uses for Water in Georgian Times" Talks

The celebration of water – Water Features and Fountains.
By Trevor Gilman

Water has always been essential to life. Trevor Gilman draws on his experience of design and history to look at the celebration of water from the adornment of ancient springs to today’s animated displays. The talk concludes by asking why, in a town whose very existence is down to its spa water, do we do so little to celebrate it. 

The water systems of the Derwent Valley Mills
