Strutt’s North Mill Heritage Walks:
Lying at the heart of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, Strutt’s North Mill is the ideal place to start exploring this historic landscape on foot.
From the mills and factories nestling by the Derwent, to the cottages, chapels and schools provided for the millworkers; from the formal parks and gardens in the town centre to the well preserved 18th century rural valley landscape setting, Belper is a treasure chest of sights to discover and experience. There are historically significant landmarks around every corner.
Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, carrying out research and developing alternative walking routes, Strutt’s North Mill offers a range of regular heritage walks. These walks range from short guided tours around the town centre to longer rambles into the countryside, but all include opportunities to see this area’s heritage as you’ve never seen it before.
Heritage Walk Pricing
All walks cost £5 per adult with accompanied under 16 year olds free. All money raised helps to support Strutt’s North Mill Museum.
For all walks (apart from those forming part of Discovery Days during October half-term week) you can pre-book by clicking the button below (this takes you to our online booking service) or just turn up and pay with cash at the starting point before the walk begins. Please be advised that if there are any changes to the schedule we can only inform those who pre-book but will do our best to put a notice on the home page of our web site. Please ensure you have suitable footwear and clothing for walking and the seasonal weather. Well behaved dogs are welcome on a lead, unless otherwise stated for specific walks.
You can download our Heritage Walks Leaflet to make sure you don’t miss out on our next heritage walk. Alternatively, why not pick up some other walk leaflets and books from our gift shop and tourist information centre, to help you take in all the sights of our impressive town. These include simple heritage walks with maps, as well as a guide to the Town Centre.
