Cromford Meadows Cricket Club

Against the stunning backdrop of the Derwent Valley, Cromford Meadows Cricket Club is an idyllic location for outdoor cinema.

With the River Derwent on one side, Cromford Canal on the other and the historic Arkwright’s Mill, why not arrive early and take in the unique heritage of the location?

Within 200m of the screening area, there will be access to a Changing Places facility. There are also no steps between the car parking area and the screening location, allowing for a fully accessible screening experience.

Cinema in the Valley has been made possible thanks to funding received through the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Great Place Scheme from National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England.

Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site

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.
