The seven-storey Belper East Mill dates from 1912 and as a child (not quite as far back as 1912!) I got to explore most of it thanks to my Dad being assistant general manager there.
The Horseshoe Weir (built c.1797) was built to enable the River Derwent to power the older West Mill and replaced a much simpler structure located slightly further upstream.
