Description

The project was the first of four Masterplan phases which will ultimately allow the site to generate the income it needs to be self-sustaining; it brings back into economic use Building 17, an iconic five-storey mill building, Grade I listed within the World Heritage Site, unused since the 1970’s and on the English Heritage “at risk” register.

It will be repaired and converted to create on the four upper floors a ‘Creative Cluster’ of managed workspace units aimed at the creative industries, and on the ground floor a visitors ‘Gateway’ centre for the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. The Gateway centre provides information, visitor orientation and interpretation about Cromford Mills, and the 15 miles long World Heritage site, to help visitors appreciate its importance. Without this project the building and the Cromford Mills site are at serious risk.
