Home to Lombe's Mill, an early British factory, Derby has a claim to be one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution.
It contains the southern part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
This popular belief is asserted by Tim Lambert who states, "The name Derby is derived from the Danish words deor by meaning deer settlement." However the origin of the name "Derby" would seem to be elusive: some assert that it is a corruption of the original Roman name 'Derventio' and others that the name could be linked with the river which flows through it, the Derwent, in that Derby could be a shortened version of Derwent by, meaning "Derwent settlement".
The name "Derwent" is Celtic and means "a valley thick with oaks". These areas of land were known as Norþworþig ("Northworthy", = "north enclosure") and Deoraby, and were at the "Irongate" (north) side of Derby.
