The former counting house at Belper Mill is being opened up to the public as part of a business event for the first time in living memory.

The Derwent Business Fair 2012 will be held at Strutt House – which was once the financial centre of the mill complex, with its own strong room. Around 29 businesses will be exhibiting as part of the event sponsored by Abacus Belper, First Investments and Graphic Results. Kirsty Jackson, from Abacus (pictured), said: “There are so many people working from home and in buildings such as the mill that people wouldn’t necessarily know exist.” For more information phone 01773 297005.
