Refill Belper was launched in June 2018 by a local teenager Charlotte Creed as part of her Bright Green Future Environmental project. In partnership with Transition Belper, a local environmental community group, Charlotte and her family are aiming to establish as many Refill free tap water stations as possible within the DE56 postcode area of Derbyshire.
Belper is a small market town on the River Derwent approximately 10 miles north of Derby. The town has a history dating back to Norman times and was originally known for nail making. With the advent of the industrial revolution the power of the river was harnessed – still evidenced in the impressive East Mill and the older North Mill. Belper is now the central point of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and much of the older parts are within the Belper and Milford Conservation Area.
