  • Derby is home to more engineers per capita than other area in the UK building upon its heritage going back to the British Industrial Revolution when the world’s first water powered silk mill was built in Derby in 1717 by George Sorocold and John Lombe.

    At the start of the 1800s, Derby emerged as an engineering centre manufacturing machine tools and exporting them to countries such as Russia.

    In 1840, the North Midland Railway commenced its works in Derby and, when it merged with the Midland Counties Railway and the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway, to form the Midland Railway, Derby became its headquarters. The London, Midland and Scottish Railways took responsibility for the Midlands railway in 1923 and relocated their headquarters from Derby to London.

    Derby was for numerous years a railway centre, being the former headquarters of the Midland Railway, with both British Rail workshops and research facilities in the town. Although much less important than in years gone by, train manufacture continues in Derby and Derby railway station retains an important position in the railway network. The city is highly considered for a national railway centre and in World War I, Derby was targeted by German Zeppelin air bombers.

    In 1977, Derby was awarded city status by Queen Elizabeth II on the 25th anniversary of her coronation. The Queen presented the ‘charter scroll’ or 'letters patent' personally on 28 July 1977 on the steps of the Council House to the then Mayor Councillor Jeffrey Tillet (Conservative). Derby had previously been amongst the few English towns to have a cathedral but have no city status. The height of Derby Cathedral is 212 feet to the tip of its pinnacles.

    During the 1900 general election, Derby won a seat for the recently formed Labour Representation Committee, one of only two seats to be held by the party, earning Derby a memorable position in the history of the Labour Party.

    The deaf community holds a significant cultural centre within Derby and a great deal of deaf people move to Derby due to its strong sign language-using community.

The Royal School for the Deaf on Ashbourne Road delivers education in both British Sign Language and English.
