The spotlight was on an historic Dales venue as it hosted an international conference last week.

Cromford Mills hosted the European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH) group’s annual conference, which took place in the UK for the first time.

The conference was held with help from University of Derby events management students.

Events included a gala dinner for delegates, tours of the Derwent Valley including some of its other historic mills, and the industrial heritage of Derby from railways to Rolls Royce engineering.

They were also in charge of an academic conference at Cromford following the ERIH event, and overseeing Derby College students who are providing the catering.
