Cricket hero Vaughan moving to new home

Lucy Harvey SHEFFIELD cricket hero Michael Vaughan is moving to north Derbyshire.

England's captain and his pregnant wife Nichola are selling their 700,000 home in Dore, Sheffield, and have bought a new home in Baslow. It is not clear when the couple will move to the property, off School Lane, with their one-year-old daughter Tallulah Grace. Their second baby is expected in coming months, as revealed in the Yorkshire Post two weeks ago.

The house is described as: "A most attractive period house, dating from the mid-seventeenth century, set in a mature walled garden, located in this very popular village on the edge of the Chatsworth Estate in the heart of The Peak Park."

Vaughan is familiar with the village of Balsow having played for football team Baslow FC in the Hope Valley league around 10 years ago.

Baslow and Bubnell Parish Council chairman Gordon Russell, who lives in a neighbouring property, said: "We will obviously all welcome Michael Vaughan as a new neighbour."

The England cricket captain will be appearing at Sheffield Town Hall to address fans at 6.15pm on Wednesday as part of celebrations of his team's Ashes win.
