The iconic landscape of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Belper is set to be restored and safeguarded – thanks to a £2.5million project.

Heritage chiefs are celebrating this week after the major scheme was given the go-ahead.

The project, to be led by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Natural England and Derbyshire County Council, will provide grants to improve the landscape – where the factory system began at the start of the Industrial Revolution.
