Strutt's North Mill, Belper
Grid reference: SK345481
Postcode: DE56 1YD
Between the A517 and the A6 in Bridge Foot, Belper, Derbyshire.
The original North Mill was completed in 1786 by Jedediah Strutt but was destroyed by fire in 1803.
Its replacement, the present water-powered cotton spinning mill, was built in 1804 on the earlier mill's foundations
by Jedediah's eldest son William and is one of the oldest surviving example of an industrialised
iron framed 'fire-proof' building.
