CROMFORD BRIDGE FISHING TEMPLE
This 18th century fishing temple stands next to the Bridge Chapel above the River Derwent on Cromford bridge.
The sign above the doorway reads ‘Piscatoribus Sacrum’ which translates as ‘Sacred to Fishermen’.
It was originally occupied by the water bailiff for the Arkwright estate, and was lived in until 1914.
The original bridge, built for packhorses and contemporary with the chapel, has been widened with round arches on one side, the older ones down-river being pointed.
