Topping Out Ceremony at Robinson Court

Robinson Court, a new phase in the development of Audley St. Elphin’s Park, celebrated a significant milestone in its construction with a Topping Out ceremony on Wednesday 27th February 2013. Building work is due to be completed in Spring 2013.


Audley welcomed Councillor Ingrid Pasteur, the Mayor of Darley Dale and councillors from Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Dales District Council.  Other noteworthy guests at the event included Mrs Rosemary Cuff, who was acting Headmistress when St. Elphin’s School closed in 2005 as well as the High Sheriff of Derbyshire. The ceremony was marked by the planting of a tree and was followed by exclusive tours of the new view apartment at Robinson Court and the beautifully restored Grade II* listed St. Elphin’s House. Guests enjoyed a buffet lunch and refreshments in the Orangery Restaurant.


Nick Sanderson said: “It is with pride and great pleasure that we celebrate another milestone in the construction of Robinson Court today, in the company of so many residents, members of the local community and Old Elphinians. We look forward to welcoming new residents and guests to St. Elphin’s Park when Robinson Court opens this Spring. This is such a beautiful spot and the countryside views provide a wonderful backdrop to the excellent facilities available. I can fully understand why our Village residents are so happy here.”
