Matlock is the county town of Derbyshire, England. It is situated in the south-eastern part of the Peak District, with the National Park directly to the west. The town is twinned with the French town of Eaubonne. The former spa resort of Matlock Bath lies immediately south of the town on the A6. The civil parish of Matlock Town had a population in the 2011 UK census of 9,543. The population of the wider Matlock urban area (including Darley Dale, Tansley, Hackney and Matlock Bath) is approximately 20,000.
Matlock is nine miles south-west of Chesterfield and in easy reach of the cities of Derby, Sheffield and Nottingham; the Greater Manchester conurbation is 30 miles away. Matlock is within the Derbyshire Dales district, which also includes the towns of Bakewell and Ashbourne, as well as Wirksworth. The headquarters of Derbyshire County Council are in the town.

I am absolutely delighted that River Network have employed Kickstarter jobs in Matlock. We cannot allow young people to be left behind as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and schemes like this will be vital for creating jobs and giving young people the skills to access them.
I’m delighted that the Conservative government is putting young people at the heart of its plans to build back stronger after the pandemic and I am so glad to see businesses in Derbyshire Dales taking part. Well done River Network!
