Photos of Belper

Posted @withrepost • @visitderbyshire Today’s feature is of Belper’s North Mill. ~ The original North Mill, completed in 1786 by Jedediah Strutt, was destroyed by fire in 1803. Its replacement was built in 1804 by his son, William Strutt, on the foundations of the old mill and is one of the oldest surviving examples of an iron-framed ‘fire-proof’ building in the world. ~ Photo skilfully captured by @pan_karaczan
