Pemberley Place

See the full picture in the galleryLove it or loathe it, the former Darcy House site's re-development is starting to take shape. The developer Banner Homes have provided some artists impressions and information of the forthcoming houses on the site being marketed as Pemberley Place, a name clearly designed to relate to the heritage of our village.
