Hello, Learnincurve and welcome.
I am in Derbyshire too. 100 yards from the Erewash canal so only just. We do have a Nottingham postcode and phone number but we pay Derbyshire council tax. Part of my garden is sandy, the other side is heavy clay. I started with what the previous occupants thought was a golf course. A lot of grass and not a lot else. it is very satisfying to see it grow from a clean slate. Show us a few piccies.
