Derwent Valley at Crich

Derwent Valley, Crich, Derbyshire, UK
This idyllic landscape has seen the birth of the industrial revolution. Not far from here Sir Richard Arkwright built the first successful water-powered cotton-spinning mill. Also the place from which this photograph was made, now the Crich Tramway Vilage, was where George Stephenson, the "Father of Railways" pursued his mining bussiness.
