The Greyhound was originally built in 1778 to service the needs of the Cromford Mill village and the meeting place for Sir Richard Arkwright’s business colleagues. Sitting at the centre of the market place it had pride of place as a coaching & posting house through the centuries, the place of celebration, auctions, hearings, wakes… you name it, it has probably been happening here!
It is a grade 2 protected property with protection on the front façade and Georgian facia. Take a look at our antique map of Cromford in our Market Room wall to cast your mind back to the 19th century showing details of our rich heritage from the surrounding area.
