Macildowie has been ‘Building Great Futures’ in Derbyshire since 1993. Derbyshire is a county in the East Midlands with an estimated population of 796,142 people.
Derbyshire includes much of the Peak District National Park and the southern end of the Pennine range of hillshas. It has a mixture of the rural economy, with a former coal-mining economy, and the manufacturing economy as it's the home of large companies like Rolls-Royce, Thorntons, Toyota and Nestlé Waters UK.
45 million tourists flock to Derbyshire annually to take all that the Peak District has to offer like Mam Tor and Kinder Scout as well as its more urban attractions like Bakewell, Buxton and Derby. In fact, the Peak District and Derbyshire's tourism industry generates £2.5 billion for the local economy which supports 31,000 jobs.
Aside from tourism, Derbyshire is rich in natural mineral resources including lead, iron, coal, and limestone, all of which have been exploited over a long period, with Lead, for example, being mined since Roman times. This makes Derbyshire a huge supplier of crushed stone for road building and concrete manufacturing.
Derbyshire also boasts of being the homeplace of the Bakewell tart, the Derbyshire oatcake, Chatsworth House (the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire), Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall.
