Built by Jedediah Strutt in 1804, North Mill in Belper is a cotton mill. The mill was an advanced 'fireproof' 5 storey building of brick and iron. The Strutt family were friends with Charles Bage an engineer from Shrewsbury, from whom they took much consultation from. The mill was originally powered by a huge waterwheel.
