More to see and do
The Silk Mill, one of Britain's first factories, is the centrepiece of an industrial museum on the riverside that highlights the city's key role in the railways and aerospace.
Heading up river from the mill you will soon come to a bridge chapel, one of the last in existence, though today hemmed in by two modern bridges.
Further along still about a mile from the city centre is Darley Abbey Park, another monument from the early industrial age which is part of the Derwent Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Pickford's House is a 1770 townhouse with period rooms depicting Georgian life.
Derby is surrounded by numerous country estates, including Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall, Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall and Subury Hall.
World War II
In the middle of The Market Place there is a statue of a woman holding a small baby in her arms. This statue has been dedicated to all those people who lost their lives during the World War II. During my visit it was surrounded by open air market stalls and cars.
