Each individual chapter also includes the original ‘Introduction’, ‘The Walks’ and ‘Important Notes’.The Derwent Valley is one of this country’s finest assets, both from the point of view of its heritage and magnificent scenery. Although only about 60 miles in length, it fills mighty reservoirs near its source, and has been harnessed to power mills and, most importantly played an outstanding part in the Industrial Revolution. This was recognised in 2001, when the Derwent Valley was awarded World Heritage Status, the site running from Masson Mill at Matlock Bath to the former Derby Silk Mill, a distance of approximately 15 miles. It is the only World Heritage Site in the East Midlands.'Darley Abbey' invites you to explore the old village of Darley Abbey, only two miles from the centre of Derby. It is at its most impressive when approached along either side of the River Derwent. The village itself is still full of interest since the Evans family, between 1782 and 1840, transformed it from a quiet little backwater, and it retains an important place in the industrial history of this country and now forms part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.There are 10 individual e-books available in Derwent Valley Walks series....
