The town of Belper in the valley of the River Derwent in Derbyshire dates back to Norman times. Just eight miles from Derby Belper is known for its iron working history, in particular nail making.
During the late eighteenth century Belper was one of the first mill towns and the East Mill which was built in 1913 is a prominent landmark in the town. Belper is a small but attractive town to visit. The River Gardens near the East Mill are a good place to stroll through and relax.
