The only UNESCO World Heritage Site in the East Midlands, the Derwent Valley Mills snakes 15 miles from Matlock Bath and Cromford in the north, through Belper, Milford and Darley Abbey into the City of Derby. Following the course of the mighty River Derwent, which once powered the world’s first ‘modern’ factories, it offers fascinating insights into life at the time of the Industrial Revolution.
Cromford village is well known for its connection with Sir Richard Arkwright. He established his first water powered cotton spinning mill here in 1771 – now home to the award-winning visitor attraction Cromford Mills. Close by is Cromford Canal. A walk along the towpath will reveal industrial treasures such as High Peak Junction Railway Workshops and Leawood Pumphouse.
