Matlock is situated in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, about 20 miles north of Derby. Until the 1830's Matlock was a hamlet whose principal industry was agriculture with lead mining and quarrying as subsidiary activities. The building of the mills at Cromford, by Richard Arkwrighrt in the late 18th century provided some employment for Matlock people but it was John Smedley, born 1803, who established Hydrotheraphy in Matlock and made it one of the most celebrated centres for the treatment of ailments with water theraphy, in the country.

Some of the other attractions in the more immediate vicinity are, Arkwrights Mill at Cromford, Gullivers Kingdom at Matlock Bath, Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath, Lead Mining Museum at Matlock Bath and the Red House Stables and Carriage Museum at Darley Dales.
