Borrowash Bridge
Borrowash Bridge
Seven arch bridge across the River Derwent, of blue engineering brick, opened in 1898. It replaced an earlier bridge a little way upstream.
River Derwent (Derbyshire)
The Derwent is in Derbyshire. It is 66 miles long and is a tributary of the River Trent which it joins south of Derby. For half its course, the river flows through the Peak District.
Much of the river's route, with the exception of Derby, is rural. However the river has also seen many human uses, and between Matlock and Derby was one of the cradles of the Industrial Revolution, providing power to the first industrial scale cotton mills. Today it provides a water supply to several surrounding cities, and its steeply sided valley is an important communications corridor through the uplands of the Peak District.
