Belper's Community

Belper is the world's first Cotton Mill town. It was here that Jedediah Strutt and his sons began their cotton mill business in 1776, and to encourage families to move into Belper to work in their mills, they built housing close by, nearly all of which have survived.

The village was home for several of the Strutt family – the Strutt residencies Milford house and Makeney Hall still exist today, one as a care home, the other as a hotel.
