Strutts and the river that changed the world

The Strutt Mill complex, built by Jedediah Strutt in the late 18th century and developed over many years, lies over a hidden system of channels which conducted water from the River Derwent to the various Mill buildings.

Find out about our link with round-the-world yachtswoman, Ellen MacArthur. Keep an eye out for wildlife, such as river birds and the resident peregrine falcons.
