Cromford Mill, Buildings 1,18, 26 and Aqueduct, Mill Road, Cromford - Derbyshire Dales

Cotton mill factory complex, built from 1771 onwards. Gritstone with Welsh slate roofs. The shells of all buildings have been largely repaired. Buildings 18 and 26 were the original mills on the site, with the former once five storeys, now three storeys. Plans for future uses of buildings 1, 18, 26 and the aqueduct remain to be finalised, though a masterplan has been developed. Building 17 is no longer at risk having been repaired and converted to office use and a visitor gateway to the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.
