I recently arranged a group tour of the mill and it was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide Christine was very knowledgable and engaging throughout. Some of the group were visiting from outside of the Derbyshire area and knew little of the heritage, but came away feeling satisfied that they’d learnt a lot of really interesting things.

The booking process for groups was very straight forward and we were given ample time to look at the exhibits and ask questions.

We really enjoyed the morning, thank you.

Ian was our guide (superb) for a one hour tour which flashed by and only seemed like 15 minutes. We came out realising that at one point in time this place was the centre of the known universe with regards to engineering and construction feats along with so many innovative ideas. What occurred at this place was and is now adopted worldwide. If you want to find out just what book a £5 a head tour and visit but be quick because they have the sickle of closure swinging above their heads which is held together by a very fine cotton thread.

Recently went on the workers cottages tour organised and run from the North Mill. It was an excellent gentle hours walk around the backstreets of Belper with a really well informed local guide called Ian. We would never have found some of the little nooks and crannies he showed us and his stories and historical knowledge really made the town come to life. Definitely well worth doing if you are in Belper. Will certainly be signing up for the Mill and Waterway tours next. Hope the North Mill Museum is able to get the funding it deserves to stay open.

This is such an interesting place - straight from bygone times. We were fortunate to have a guided tour with a lovely lady called Stella. She was so knowledgeable and brought the exhibits to life. The tour really is advisable in order to gain knowledge of the mill and its history of the building and the machinery. It is such a shame that it needs to close by October 2022 due to the owner of the building wanting to change its use to commercial - it will lose history of it's use and the knowledge of the volunteers. I strongly advise people to visit before it closes. A gem of a place.

What a step back in time to see how the cottage industry of bygone days became industrialized by several peoples visions.
We were lucky enough to have a personal guided tour of Strutt’s North Mill to see how things evolved over the generations. It was extremely interesting and worthwhile.
We followed our visit to the North Mill by the Strutts Heritage Walk which takes in the houses built for the staff and management working at the mill and their chapel and school.
We also visited the River Gardens which was also part of the mill in past times.

The North Mill museum may close in September 2022 and this would be tragic. The site's heritage significance is huge while the building itself is a fascinating structure. The volunteer guides bring the storey of the mill site to life describing and showing how the antique machinery was used and how the beautiful Derwent river was harnessed for power.

Fabulous little museum and a very informative guide. We booked in for a timed tour with another couple. The tour takes you through the history of the mill town, the mill itself and and the development of hosiery. It was an amazing walk through history, and I loved seeing a Spinning Jenny something I only learnt about in school history lessons. Most interesting part was the section on the fines places on workers , even one for a person for their ugly face! So sad to hear that a developer has now bought the building , and is refusing to renew the lease for the museum. It is such a special piece of history both the mill building itself and the history of the people that worked there and deserves to be preserved for future generations, Highly recommend the tour well worth the £5 entry fee

Excellent tour about the rich, industrial heritage of Belper. Very knowledgeable guide. Great way to spend Sunday afternoon and such a good price at just £5. Highly recommend.
