About the area

Cromford Wharf was once a hive of industrial activity serving Richard Arkwright's world famous cotton mill. Today it serves as the gateway to walks along the historic Cromford Canal, High Peak Trail and beyond.

Cromford Wharf along with Arkwright's Mill is part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. 

Around 22,000 vehicles use the car park per year with many more using car parks nearby. It's estimated around 100,000 walkers use the canal towpath each year. 

What's available

A hard-standing space in the car park to be let by competitive tender for a period of three years − with the potential for a one year extension − and subject to a commercial licence
