Road archway and footbridge (including offices), Bridge Foot, Belper - Amber Valley

Footbridge linking former mills. Late C18-early C19. The archway served a defensive role, with gun embrasures protecting the former Counting House in West Mill. Past incidents of road traffic collisions appear to have been resolved by the installation of signage by Derbyshire County Council. However, roof coverings remain in a poor condition (turnerised and patched) and renewal is required. The building remains unoccupied. Proposals have been submitted for the residential and mixed use conversion of the mill complex.
