Enjoy an exclusive pond dipping experience with our Cromford Mills team. Learn about the creatures that live in the depths of the mill stream, and have a go yourself with our nets, trays and ID sheets. Catch sticklebacks and poke around in the mud to see what larvae and worms you can find.  Plus you will also have the opportunity to explore the wildflowers in the barracks afterwards.
