North Street is the earliest piece of planned industrial housing in the world. Built in 1771 by Richard Arkwright to house his mill workers, North Street, surrounded by countryside, is at the heart of a designated World Heritage Site. Without any of the grimness of later workers’ terraces, No. 10 is one of Landmark’s quiet gems. Cromford is an excellent little town, and the area is full of interest for those absorbed by industrial archaeology.
We are opening North Street as part of the Derwent Valley Mills Discovery Days. There is lots going on in the area so a great day trip to explore, visit their website for more information.
