North Mill, Bridge Foot, Belper - Amber Valley

Important example of early 'fireproof' mill, 1803-4. Used for offices and part leased for museum use. Amber Valley Borough Council and Historic England are deeply concerned about the condition of the roof and occasional flooding in the basement. Discussions with the owner secured some temporary repairs and the introduction of mechanical ventilation. Temporary repairs are failing. Wholesale re-roofing is required. The adjoining grade II East Mill is vacant and in poor condition. Monitored by Amber Valley Borough Council with support from Historic England.
