Georgian Inventions Trail

It is said that John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, ‘invented’ the SANDWICH in 1762 when he asked for his meat to be served between slices of bread to avoid interrupting his card game.

This is part of the Cromford Mills ‘Inventions’ trail for families. To find out more, go to

There are 10 trail locations, stretching from the top of Church Walk by the A6, to just past the first bridge on the canal.

To collect your prize, rearrange the letters on the posters into something that was invented by Sir Richard Arkwright, and tell the mill shop!
