Mr Arkwright Art Installation

Come and experience this bicycle driven water-powered automatic drawing machine!

This  brand new interactive art installation has been designed by artist Jo Fairfax. It is a contemporary tribute to Sir Richard Arkwright, inspired by his early career and the invention of the water frame.
Call in at the Mill Shop to start your ride - open daily between 11am and 3pm from 25th July!
The work has been commissioned by Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site as part of the Great Place Scheme, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, supported by Historic England. This is part of a wider creative programme for the scheme co-ordinated by arts organisation Beam.
