2019 Flooding

When the Derwent flooded this autumn, Cromford Mills was very lucky to escape with no damage.  The meadows by the church were underwater, but neither the river nor the mill  race flooded the Mill Yard.  
The new picnic tables that have been installed as part of the Beyond the Mill Walls Project survived, and with a good clean up will be ready for spring!
Other World Heritage Sites in the Derwent Valley were not so lucky, and our thoughts are with them as they assess the damage, and tackle the mess left behind when the water receded


Come and join us at our Christmas Wreath making workshops - we will provide instruction, florist block, holly and natural materials, but you might like to bring your own additions such as baubles and decorations to make it special and unique to you!
Dates: Fri 6th, Sat 7th & Sun 8th December, and then again on Fri 13th, Sat 14th & Sun 15th December.
Times: 11.30 am and 2.30 pm 
Cost: £24 (includes materials and refreshments). The workshops last 2 hours
It would make a great early Christmas present!
