Its finally arrived! Three years since initial discussions with McDonalds, the building finally arrived in Matlock earlier today.
A 500 tonne crane moved into position and then began offloading the sectional prefabricated building that arrived throughout the morning on 8 wide load lorries. Thankfully the wind stayed down as the crane's boom swung the sections over the river Derwent that runs alongside the site.
A spokesman for the landlords Twiggs commented, "We're delighted to see all the plans coming to fruition. Its taken a lot of hard work and investment to get to this point and we now look forward to the opening on 31st May."
The McDonalds unit will be franchised out to an existing operator and plans are well under way to recruit the 65 staff who will be working there. Also on the site will the Matlock Express Hand Car Wash who are delighted to be operating alongside McDonalds.
