Feeding ducks in Markeaton Park
(Feeding duck in River Derwent)
(feeding ducks in Markeaton Brook)My daughter likes feeding ducks in river Derwent, since we moved home to Macworth, we take her to Markeaton Park. There are as many duck in Markeaton Brook as in river Derwent.
In Victorian time, Markeaton Brook was being used as a dump, upstream from the bridge at the bottom of Sadler Gate it was reported at a Council meeting that the Brook was a 'depository for filth and dead cats and dogs'. But now it's very clean except for loads of duck drops on the pavement beside the pool.
