Map & Directions

Road Directions

Wirksworth is around 3 miles south of Matlock Bath and 2 miles east of Carsington Water. The Heritage Centre itself is a 2 minute walk from the Market Place in the centre of Wirksworth, and a 5-10 minute walk from Wirksworth Railway Station (if arriving by train on Ecclesbourne Valley Railway). Pay and display parking is located on the town's Market Place, and time-limited on-street parking is available on St.John's Street near the Heritage Centre itself. A free car park can be found on nearby Canterbury Road opposite Anthony Gell School, and additional unlimited on-street parking is also available in this area. Wirksworth is served by two bus services - the 'sixes' travelling between Derby and Bakewell and the 110-111b between Matlock, Ashbourne and Wirksworth. Coaches are advised to drop-off and pick-up groups on St. John's Street.
