Mission Statement

The Strutt’s North Mill Museum sits within Belper’s North Mill, which is at the centre of UNESCO’s Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.

Through the Museum, the Belper North Mill Trust helps to raise public awareness of the industrial heritage of the Derwent Valley and promote the protection and conservation of this heritage for the public benefit.

The Belper Mills are of significant importance, but most especially the grade 1 listed North Mill (1804), as it is one of the earliest examples of a pioneering fire-proof building, and is therefore recognised as one of the most important buildings from the industrial revolution in the world.
