Defra visit to Derby to see the work progressing

We recently hosted visitors from Defra and the Environment Agency to take a tour of the Our City Our River project area to see how the work is progressing. They were given a short overview of the project before we headed out into sunny Derby to walk around the Duke Street, Chester Green and City Road areas. They could see the extent of the current construction work taking place and talk with some of the members of the project team. The group were also able to see some of the recent Roman finds that were excavated during the investigations at the Roman fort area in Chester Green including an animal skull and a leather shoe.
