Places to eat & drink in Belper.

Once famous for nail making, Belper was transformed thanks to the Strutt family. It was Jedediah Strutt who built one of the earliest water-powered cotton mills here whilst his son, William, later constructed a fireproof mill. Together with men like Richard Arkwright they literally changed the world by creating factories. It was one of William’s young apprentices, Samuel Slater, who took the factory concept to America. Today he is known as the Father of American Manufacturers.

Strutt’s North Mill is now the home of the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre and displays original machinery. An exhibition explains the evolution of hosiery manufacture, cotton spinning and nail making. Close by are the beautiful River Gardens, the setting of an annual well-dressing.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Belper or surrounding areas.
