The history of our home. The infamous Belper Mill.

Our beautiful home of Belper is nestled within the breathtaking Derwent Valley on the cusp of the Peak District.

The striking Belper Mill was the cornerstone of modern architecture using innovative ways for not only construction but for production too. There are a total of 1092 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world and our home is one of them. The infamous Belper Mill was completed in 1786 by Jedediah Strutt, was destroyed by fire in 1803. The repaired mill was opened in 1805 by his son, William Strutt, on the foundations of the old mill and is one of the oldest surviving examples of an iron-framed ‘fire-proof’ building in the world.
