About

How did a small town in Derbyshire help to change the world?

In this fully illustrated talk by David Skillen we explore the way in which one family, the Strutts, helped to change the way we work forever. We see how they built a thriving community that continues to this day.

We will go inside the world’s first skyscraper and meet the man who betrayed Belper’s secrets to the rest of the world.
