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.

Heritage Walks – 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.
