National Heritage Corridor



The National Heritage CorridorĀ® was established to secure recognition of the Derwent Valley for its landscape, wildlife and heritage.


The River Derwent flows for over fifty miles from north to south through the stunning Derbyshire countryside. Over the centuries, nature and entrepreneurs have shaped the landscape to produce the panorama that greets visitors today. In ever-changing countryside, the river travels through peaceful villages, bustling towns and elegant country estates, while all around are legacies of influential industrial heritage.
