Cromford is a small village lying on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire, set in a valley surrounded by colourful wooded hills and cliffs just gently nudging the River Derwent to the east of the town. Cromford is a walkers delight with its many footpaths and trails winding through the surrounding countryside offering some splendid scenic views of both the village and local countryside. The village of Cromford has enjoyed a long history, archaeologists have found evidence that the Romans were here having unearthed a number of coins dating from the 4th century AD, the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine 1 who was also the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity. The village though was home to one of the more famous innovators of the Industrial Revolution – Richard Arkwright who opened a mill here in the mid 18th century. Arkwright’s technology in the use of water powered mills was instrumental in the success of the textile industry throughout Britain in the 19th century and Arkwright’s mill here in Cromford survives today having been painstakingly restored by the Arkwright Society. With some of the best and most accessible scenery here in Derbyshire, its quaint village charm, range of traditional shops and pubs Cromford has plenty to offer anyone who is lucky enough to find themselves in this part of the country.
