What is Your Interest?
From mining, milling and brewing to the birthplace of the factory systems in the 18th century we have a wealth of England history. Transport systems of rail and canal developed alongside manufacturing enterprises leaving a network of interesting and informative tourist attractions of steam trains, trams and canal boats. The National tram museum with working trams is only a very short distance away. We are also fortunate to be situated overlooking the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, which contains a fascinating series of historic mill complexes, including some of the world’s first ‘modern’ factories. Should your interest lie in ceramics we can offer visits to the birthplaces of some of the world’s most important and prestigious china and pottery manufacturers.
