In response to the government advice on the Coronavirus, Cromford Mills will be closed to the public for the foreseeable future. Thank you to everyone for their support during this challenging time. Stay safe and look after each other.


Be a Heritage Hero by supporting Cromford Mills! 

Every donation or purchase made at Cromford Mills will help our charity keep this amazing place standing.

In the light of the current Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic we have followed government advice and taken the decision to close Cromford Mills to the public to safeguard our staff, volunteers and visitors.  As an independent charity this is a really challenging time for us as most of our income comes from visitors purchasing tickets, food and drink in our cafes, car parking and purchases from our shops.  With no visitors coming to the mills, we now need your support more than ever!  We are working on new ways that we can keep engaged with our audiences, school children, members and volunteers throughout this time and you can still support the charity's work to preserve Cromford Mills for the future in a variety of ways.  

You can help us by:

You can purchase gift vouchers which are redeemable in our shop, cafes and for Cromford Mill events; this income now will really help us in the future.  Just email and request a £5 or £10 voucher and we'll organise the rest!  Our annual pass for the Visitor Centre and guided tours can also be purchased any time to use when we fully reopen again.  You can also donate online by following the link below through Virgin Money Giving.  Any amount of donation, however big or small, will help us to keep Cromford Mills running. 

Thank you for your support to look after Cromford Mills, both now and for the future.
