In 2014, and with the help of the Community Payback Scheme, Committee Member David Hallam co-ordinated the restoration of Snape Hill steps which provide a pedestrian short cut to and from Dronfield Bottom.
The work involved clearance of rubbish, weeds and leaves to reveal a very interesting old stone rain water channel down the side of the steps. The hand rail, which runs the length of the steps was renovated and repainted using paint donated by Steel's Hardware on Dronfield Bottom.
The steps appear in 'Derbyshire Detail and Character: a celebration of its towns and villages' written by Barry Joyce, published 1996.
Joyce speculates that the hand rail may well have been made at the Lucas Works foundry which once occupied the site across the road from the steps.
