587 Sparrowpit

The Wanted Inn at Sparrowpit was once the Unwanted Inn. After standing empty for several years the former Devonshire Arms was rescued and rechristened by its new owners. Sometimes Peak District walls look as though no-one wants them either. But the unsung heroes are the men who labour quietly through the year rebuilding and repairing.
