It is recognized as the birthplace of modern factory production and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Richard Arkwright’s very first cotton mill, Cromford Mill is the most famous.

These industrial facilities were developed to accommodate the new organic cotton spinning technology invented by Richard Arkwright in the 18th century. They soon became the standard for factories all over the world. The river Derwent powered the electricity needed to run these machines and they were often constructed alongside other cotton mills. The site eventually was absorbed into the modern city of Derbyshire.
