Derbyshire Photographs

The Derwent Valley in Derbyshire contains a series of 18th- and 19th- century cotton mills and an industrial landscape of high historical and technological interest.

The cotton mills played such a large role in shaping the factory system, the industrial revolution and modern society that the region has now become the Derwent Valley Mills World Heriage Site. The modern factory system owes its origins to the mills at Cromford, where Richard Arkwright's inventions were first put into industrial-scale production.
