As we won’t be able to hand out ACID (Archaeology and Conservation in Derbyshire and the Peak District) as we normally do, you will be able to order a copy online. You can request your copy of ACID magazine here. A link will appear here as soon as the magazines are available. We can only post out a limited number so booking will be on a first come first served basis.

If you aren’t lucky enough to get a magazine posted to you, copies will be available from libraries throughout the area, as well as the Peak Park Visitor Centres, Chesterfield Museum and Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre, when we all open for business. An online copy of ACID is also available.
