Arkwight's Cromford

The small Derbyshire village of Cromford is the place where industrialised production began with Sir Richard Arkwright and his water powered cotton mills.  In addition to the Arkwright Centre which details the history and development of the mill and supporting infrastructure there are, a few minutes walk away, many places of interest within the village itself and the immediately surrounding area.

From the centre you may walk along Cromford Canal to High Peak Junction* or stroll through church walks at the side of the River Derwent with views of the Arkwright family home Willersley Castle.  Another option is to wander up in to the village and meander round the shops and industrial features built to manage the water supply to the mill.

Included in the trip will be a visit to Masson Mill, just around the corner from Cromford, where there is a working textile museum, shopping complex and restaurant.  For more information click here

Price £15 per person.  Choose your preferred pick up location and then complete the form below your choice to make your reservation.
