Welcome to the Calver Weir Restoration Project

We are a registered charity formed in 2004 with the objective of saving the weir from collapse and restoring it to good condition. Calver Weir is a Listed Grade 2 structure, built in the 19th century to provide water to power cotton spinning at Calver Mill, on the River Derwent, in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire.

Now that the restoration of the weir has been achieved, CWRP is working hard to attract a greater range of visitors to the area, improve footpaths and access points, and carry out important conservation work.

Another volunteer needed to help with Oral History Project

The Oral History Project is making steady progress, and interviews are being turned into podcasts and loaded up to this website.  Do take a look at what is loaded so far ! Our volunteers, who are carrying out the interviews with local people are doing great work, but we would benefit from a little bit more help. If you feel that you could interview someone for us, using a small portable digital recorder, then please do get in touch. Training on interview techniques,and the use of the recorder, will be provided.

My contact details are just to the right of this box.

many thanks,
