Derwent Valley Mills WHS Arts

The Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Arts group supports arts activities within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.    

All the activities are designed to bring the history of the site alive for people who live in, work in or visit the World Heritage Site.

Details about the activities we have run so far can be found here.

There is also a special website for the Threads project, which collected memories and stories from former millworkers, here and for a film about the Derwent Valley Mills, here.

Derwent Valley WHS Arts' activities have been supported by the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Partnership, Derbyshire County Council, Amber Valley Borough Council, Derby City Council, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
