About the neighbourhood
In the immediate area you have a choice of many museums, and everywhere there are many remnants of the industrial revolution. Within a short distance are:- The National Tramway Museum, The Cromford Canal, Leawood and Middleton Pumping and Hauling engines, Cromford Mill, Masson Mill, Belper Mill. Then there are the lovely villages of Crich, Matlock Bath, Cromford, Wirksworth and Belper. After that there are several steam railways with 5 miles, or simply hire a rowboat from Belper River Gardens, (take a picnic if you want to enjoy a long slow trip up river).
