Last weekend August 6th & 7th we went to Cromford in Matlock, the event location was amazing as it should be as it’s a World Heritage Site. From these buildings Sir Richard Arkwright developed technology that changed our world. After half a century of neglect leading to dereliction, dilapidation and contamination it was rescued by the Arkwright Society which saved it from demolition. It has now obtained a Grade 1 listing to protection, however more than half of the site remains derelict.
There are also some fantastic shops including a Christmas shop and ice-cream from the local dairy Bradwells, with delicious flavours from Vanilla, Salted Caramel, or Strawberry to name just a few, either in cones or tubs.
This amazing place has a nice little café and plenty of Pay and display parking available and is open every day except Christmas Day.
