Andy's Driving videos around Derbyshire, UK :
Are you an ex-pat of Derbyshire, feeling homesick? Or perhaps you just want a clear way of giving someone directions to a location in Derbyshire or just want to show people your village. Well in this video and the many others I have made, you will be able to take a virtual drive around the streets as though you were in the driving seat. I use a dash-mounted camera, Traffic lights and heavy traffic have been edited out.
This is a journey through the Derbyshire villages of Willington, Findern and onto Littleover.
This journey follows on from the Repton/Milton video :
