Lincoln Readers Retreat, but only as far as Willersley Castle
30 Lincoln Readers spent their autumn Weekend Retreat at Willersley Castle, Cromford, near Matlock, Derbyshire.
The Castle was built for mill owner Sir Richard Arkwright, who unfortunately died before he could occupy it! The castle nestles in the rocks above the River Derwent in a beautiful setting.

The theme of the weekend led by Warden Sally Buck, was most appropriate - 'For the beauty of the Earth'. In between sessions reflecting on the lines of the well known hymn; there was time to explore the castle grounds, walk along the Cromford Canal, go for a swim, or just relax!

The Readers were welcomed to the Sunday morning service in St Mary's church, Cromford where Derby Reader Bernice Smith preached the sermon.

Willersley was a first visit for Lincoln Readers but they hope to return in 2020!

The castle is a Christian Guild hotel:
Accommodation, food and service was to a high standard. It proved to be an excellent venue with good facilities for a church retreat or conference.
Willersley and other Guild hotels are also popular for 'stay as you please' or themed holiday breaks and they don't charge single supplements!
Each hotel operates a 'Goodwill Fund'. If you know someone really in need of a break where circumstances indicate they could not afford it - Christian Guild just might be able to help.
