Strutts North Mill Museum: Strutts North Mill houses the museum and visitor centre which explores the wealth of Industrial history that Belper has to offer. Jedediah Strutt began building mills here from 1776. The original North Mill was completed in 1786 but was destroyed by fire in 1803. Its replacement, the present mill, was built in 1804 on the earlier mills foundations by Jedediahs eldest son William Strutt and is one of the oldest surviving example of an industrialised iron framed fire proof building, it is now recognised as one of the most important industrial buildings in the World. To walk around the mill is to see how work life really was for the workers of the nineteenth century, the top floor of the mill even houses a school room for the children of the mill workers.
