Victorian working children (!)
Examining a model of the building
Belper North Mill has an exciting schools programme. We specialise in all day visits particularly centring on the Victorians, of course. Pupils dress up as working children and meet Mr Strutt, the mill owner, to whom they are expected to show proper respect. We also discuss water power, the science of cotton spinning, textiles and textile design. There is also practical work and the children make an item ti take home.
