Local historians can learn more about the area’s past and donate to charity after a new DVD has been released with all the proceeds being donated.

Woodside Studios produced Shipley Country Park - Shadows and Shades to raise cash for Cancer Research UK.

After it was successful the team behind it decided to make another DVD, this time about Mapperley Village.

Mu Stubbs said: “We were really pleased with how well our Shipley DVD sold so we got straight to work on our next project.

“Mapperley - A Surprising Village, tells the story of the small village that has a Royal Charter.

“It was named by the Saxons, favoured by the Normans and influenced by the wealthy Miller Mundy dynasty of nearby Shipley Hall.

“Although mining has long gone, there are many reminders of Mapperley’s past and the pride and sense of community remains.”

DVDs are available to buy for £9 each including p&p.

Mrs Stubbs added: “The Shipley DVD, which also features the wealthy Miller Mundy family is still on sale.

“The money goes to a really worthwhile cause so it’s great that they’ve been so popular.”
