The River Derwent is 66 miles long and full of history- this river was once highly important to the Industrial Revolution. Going between Matlock and Derby, it provided the power for the first ever cotton mill, Richard Arkwright’s mill in Cromford.
Matlock Bath is in the middle of the rivers path and so now is enjoyed by many people who walk through the famous Spa Town.
