March Newsletter: Strutt’s North Mill- Belper

  • Half Term Success (despite flooding!)

We had a great success with our Rainforest Recycled kids craft event, which was held on the 23rd and 24th February, despite the flooding that happened due to the weather at the prior weekend. A HUGE thank you to everyone who came, and if you have any pictures you wish to share, please send them through our social media and we will be sure to use them on our page!

We also operated the inside/outside tour for the last weekend of February, due to the basement flooding. I am pleased to announce that the basement has been cleaned and is back in action for our normal tour!

  • Spring – Summer Opening
Ooh it feels *almost* like winter has ended, the days are getting that bit longer and the milder temperatures are hinting at a transition out of winter. Anyone else very excited for this?!
We’re officially open 5 days a week from now until the end of October!
Come along Wednesday-Sunday 11am-4pm for a guided tour!
We are planning on some exciting Easter Activities which will be in next month’s newsletter, plus we’re open Bank Holidays too!
Booking via is advisable!
  • Volunteers – We need you! 

    Do you have skills in social media, video creation or marketing? How about in events management, guiding or education? Whatever your skillset, your help would be appreciated!
    If you have a couple of hours a week to spare and would like to help our museum, please email

  • Heritage Walks

    Our 2022 season of Heritage walks will be LIVE on our website by the end of this week!

  • Community Lottery

    The future of our museum is uncertain. Vital funding we receive to stay open has been cut in its entirety, leaving us with a very large financial hole to fill.
    So we’re looking to YOU to help save our museum. If you fancy winning some money and helping the North mill at the same time, you can buy a share in our community lottery for just £2 a month! The more shares you buy. the more chance of winning one of three financial prizes each month!
