Eckington

A life-long resident of Eckington in North East Derbyshire describes all the houses she’s lived in, and the difference they’ve made to her life, from living in a one-up one-down ‘yard house’ to a two-bedroomed council-owned bungalow.

Listen to her story here.

These photographs of the houses she lived in, and the current houses built on the site of Old Yard, were taken in 2015.
