Situated in the North Mill at Belper, which has been described as the most beautiful, sophisticated and technologically advanced building of its era, the Centre opens a window to the National Heritage CorridorĀ® and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.  


The historic North Mill on the River Derwent at Belper, Derbyshire, UK, is one of the oldest surviving examples of industrialised water-powered cotton spinning mills in the world. Wiliam Strutt brought the innovation of a iron 'fire-proof' frame to the town which is the forerunner of the modern skyscraper.
