An iconic Derbyshire building – which has recently been restored and brought back into use – received a royal visit on Tuesday.
The Duke of Gloucester visited Cromford Mills for a tour of a new £6.7million hub for creative businesses.
The Duke was welcomed by Cromford Primary School children dressed in period costume before being given a tour of the Cromford Creative scheme, which is located in building 17 at Cromford Mills.
Sarah McLeod, chief executive of the Arkwright Society, said: “We are proud to have welcomed the Duke of Gloucester to see the fabulous restoration work that has been carried out.
“The restored building 17 will continue the sense of entrepreneurialism, innovation and creativity that characterised Arkwright’s mills and we look forward to showcasing the results of the restoration project which was the culmination of years of hard work by so many people.”
The Duke of Gloucester is The Queen’s cousin and a full-time working member of the Royal Family.
