Strutts Lift

The Trustees are please to announce the decision to proceed with the installation of a lift opening access to the first floor to everybody. The new lift will be located in part of the area currently occupied by the southern ground floor gents toilets and some cupboards. This will result in the temporary closure of the southern gents and all the toilets on the first floor.

Sadly, the works will cause some noise and disruption within the building. We will do everything we can to minimise this disruption. If your booking is affected we will do everything we can to relocate you to a better part of the building. However, such changes will be dependant upon availability.

Once the lift is complete and fully functional some works will be required to reinstate the toilet facilities on both the ground and the first floors.

The work is expected to be completed by Christmas. However, the main noisy activities are expected to be finished within a few weeks of the start of the building works.

Please accept our apologies for any disruption during this work to improve the building for everybody.

Books for sale

We often have book sales at Strutts but few people seem to realise that you can purchase our books any time reception is open. This means that if you want to find a book just come and brows our collection and when you find a book (the books) you want bring them to reception to pay. We have several hundred books on display and available most of the time, most are paper backs but we also have a smaller number of hardbacks.

So next time you are passing just drop in and have a look.

We have the space for you

In line with the wishes expressed in the original covenant we have opened the building for all sorts of activities. Everybody is welcome to come along hire our rooms and organise all kinds of events and activities. As well as social and community activities we welcome businesses into the building to present exhibitions and have meetings, in fact you can organise almost anything that is legal and does not interfere with others within the building.

If you want free publicity on this web site tell us when you book your room or if you already have a booking get in contact and tell us about your club or event and we will do our best.

The War Memorials at Strutts are recorded on the official website. There are also links to other websites holding very interesting images of HSS history. Click on Simple Search - and put in Belper, then Herbert Strutts School then, leaving the rest, click search.

Come along hire a room and do your thing at Strutts
