Discover the skills that helped rebuild Cromford Mills from a derelict industrial site into a beautiful tourist attractions, small business hub and part of the World Heritage Site. Watch expert demonstrations and try out a new skill with hands-on activities. Learn about lime plastering, watch spinning demonstrations, and have a go at pond dipping. Explore the power of Cromford water and find out how we will be harnessing it again one day soon!
