We Need Your Help

Charity Abseil at Cromford Mills

We are excited to announce that our team will be abseiling off Scarthin Rock at Cromford Mills on Sunday, 23rd June 2024 in the afternoon.  We are raising funds for The Arkwright Society, an independent charity dedicated to education and conservation.  The Society saved Cromford Mills from demolition in the 1970s and continues to make a difference through its active learning programmes.

Each year, we engage with over 70 schools, community groups, offer work placements, internships and provide adult skills training.  Your donation, no matter the size, will support these vital educational activities, particularly as we develop programmes around our waterpower project and environmental sustainability.

Help us continue our mission and make a difference for everyone who visits Cromford Mills.  Thank you for your support!

As an independent charity we rely on our visitors to support the site by purchasing tickets, food and drink in our cafes, gifts in our shop and car parking. You can also support us by donating directly to the charity.
