Belper

Belper is an attractive, old mill town, which enjoys World Heritage status because of its beauty and important industrial heritage. The town, which had been previously known as a centre for nail making, became famous with the creation of the world’s earliest waterpowered cotton mills, at Strutt Mill.

Today the town is home to over 20,000 people and is host to a wide variety of attractions and interesting places to visit. The stunning River Gardens – which offer a tranquil place to watch the world go by – combined with a range of independent shops and cafes makes Belper a really interesting place to explore.

  • Before you get to Belper you will come to Milford (after going through Duffield).
  • Just as you come into Milford you will see a pub on the right hand side called the ‘Strutt Arms’.
  • Directly opposite the ‘Strutt Arms’ is a road which goes off on the left hand side, take this road as this is Chevin Road.
