Attraction Information

Ahoy there! Fancy joining a hunt for buried loot? The Cromford Treasure Hunt Trail has one all wrapped up with historic spots and a World Heritage Site to boot!

Every pirate worth their salt needs a treasure map. Yours will come in the form of an instantly downloadable PDF which is stuffed full of handy hints that even landlubbers  could get to grips with; they’ll lead you to sneaky clues hidden all over the town, on plaques, signs and landmarks.

A little fun fact: Cromford is home to the first ever water-powered mill which is also a World Heritage Site. Allow plenty of time for a nosy here before you head into town and explore the back streets, particularly the famous Scarthin Hill. With 2 hours to play with, see as much as possible and learn loads in the process. Who knew piracy could be so educational?
