Belper Historical Society has worked since 1957 to promote a better understanding and appreciation of Belper’s history and heritage.

Our membership continues to grow and meetings are held monthly, except for August, in Room 107 at Strutts Centre (the former Herbert Strutt School) on Derby Road, Belper, DE56 1UU.

Membership costs £15 per year. Follow the link at the top of the page for membership details.

Visitors are welcome to come along to our meetings for a fee of £5 payable on the door.
