We make our journey north for a morning stop at the Denby Pottery Village, Derby. Wander around the beautiful shops, café and experience the 200 years of craftsmanship in action during a tour of the factory. You will be welcomed by an experienced Tour Guide, who will lead you through the working factory where you'll discover the different techniques and processes used to create your favourite Denby pieces.  We arrive at our hotel in time to settle in before dinner.

This morning we will visit Cromford Mills, home to Sir Richard Arkwright’s first mill complex and birthplace of the modern factory system, built in 1771. Come and explore how this infamous site changed the world we live in today. Step back in time this afternoon into the world of the Crich Tramway Village. Ride on the world renowned vintage trams through the unique period streets and out into the open countryside for spectacular views, explore fascinating exhibitions and watch as trams are restored from the Workshop Viewing Gallery.

Sunday 6 September

Today we visit the Churnet Valley Railway which takes you on a journey back to the 1950s and 1960s. Take a break from busy urban life and hop on board a steam train to ride in a heritage carriage behind one of the beautifully restored heritage steam or diesel locomotives. Pass through delightful countryside with riverside views and The Cauldon Canal.  You can learn more about the history of Churnet Valley Railway and the North Staffordshire Railway Company in the small museum based at Cheddleton Station, which houses a wealth of information and memorabilia.
