Bridged here at Grindleford, I suppose that means that there was once a ford here rather than a bridge.

Another bridge near Calver, and another weir to provide a head of water for a mill. The mill race is still in evidence and marked as The Goit on the map.

Just upstream of the bridge the river is joined by Stoke Brook in an area known as Calver Marshes

After passing the early 19th century mill the river is reunited with the waters of the Goit abstracted from it to power the mill. Then under two bridges (old and new) to carry an important road route, now the A623.

South of Baslow the Derwent enters Chatsworth Park.

The east bank of the river is met by a stream formed by the confluence of Bar Brook and Heathy Lea Brook north east of Nether End.
