Team story

[p][b][i][img][/img]Please help the Arkwright Society ‘Raise the Roof’ on a new Marquee for Cromford Mills![/i][/b][/p][p]Help us to raise the roof on a new Marquee! Having secured valuable support funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Architectural Heritage Fund, the Arkwright Society is needing to fundraise to replace our old & creaky marquee. It has provided valiant service, but now even the bunting and fairy lights will not keep the rain out, and we need to hold bigger and better events in the Mill Yard to continue the regeneration of this wonderful World Heritage Site.[/p][p]On Friday 17th & Saturday 18th May 2019, an intrepid team from Cromford Mills will be cycling from Richard Arkwright’s birthplace in Preston to his ground breaking factory here at Cromford Mills; a total of 83 miles.[/p][p]Please support us: click on the red Donate Button at the top of the page![/p]

Mary Parsons - wonderful mother-in-law

We did it! Hard going but that just gave us even more of a fantastic sense of achievement. So exhilarating to ride into the Cromford Mill Yard knowing that we had cycled all way from Arkwright's birthplace in Preston. Really well done everyone! Nicky
