Council considering £50k grant for Belper North Mill museum and visitor centre

The museum and visitor centre at Belper North Mill will get a huge boost if granted additional funding by Amber Valley Borough Council.

The future of Strutt’s North Mill will be in the hands of the cabinet as councillors are set to meet on Wednesday, October 30 to make a decision.


The North Mill Trust recently wrote to the council asking for assurance over the council’s grant support while it concluded negotiations over the future lease of the building.

The cabinet has been recommended to approve further funding for the trust of £47,600 for the financial years 2020 to 2021 and 2021 to 2022.

This will allow the trust to continue operating as a museum and visitor centre while it looks at ways to become more self-funded through new fund-raising initiatives.
