  • Old very large rundown mill on the edge of Belper next to the river Derwent and Wier. Peregrine falcons are roosting on it at the moment. Someone needs to spend lots of money developing it to keep it's historical value for the future. There is a small museum for you to visit
  • Very Informative, dedicated volunteer staff-. Lovely day out to learn about Derbyshires industrious history.
  • Belper North Mill museum is a fascinating place full of history from the industrial revolution with knowledgable guides to help bring it alive. Belper played a big part in the Industrial revolution of both the UK with the Strutt family funding Arkwright but also the founding of the American Industrial revolution by Samuel Slater whom was born in Belper and trained in Belper and Cromford. A must visit
  • Fascinating story of our industrial heritage. Very knowledgeable guides.
