Upcoming Events

NEDIAS are organising the next EMIAC Heritage Day, it’s on Saturday 6 May 2017 and it will be held at Cromford Mill. It’s called “Cromford Threads”, very much a play on words.  The day will consist of talks and more, teasing  out not the main “Arkwright” theme, but some of the peripheral aspects of the Derwent Valley: the design of mills and influences on Arkwright, the principal water power for Cromford Mill which came from the area’s lead mining activity, the industrial espionage which was to spread the new technology to the continent, and what happened to the Arkwright family in later generations. Download your booking form here emiac-92-booking-form
