AMFREC – Amber Mill Furniture Rural Enterprise Centre
A stunning office space and filming location in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside. Authentically renovated by local artisans, this Grade II listed former mustard mill and furniture manufacturer retains a wealth of period features while providing a range of brand-new facilities including state-of-the-art, superfast broadband and local IT support.
AMFREC sits in a beautiful rural location yet is well-served for transport links: 10 minutes from J28 of the M1 and within half an hour of Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield, Chesterfield and Sheffield. London is 2.5 hours away by train.
On the edge of the Peak District, the Mill is also close to historic houses such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, all of which are used regularly as filming locations.
The space would make an ideal production office: the flexible, open-plan first floor space has capacity for 20-30 desks. The ground floor is similarly open-plan, with the addition of kitchen facilities, a shower room and a lounge area.
The flexibility of the space – just under 3,000 sq ft- means AMFREC could be used as a small-scale studio, e.g. for a photoshoot or commercial.
The beauty and history of the Mill – built in 1817 – also make it a perfect filming location in its own right, with painstakingly-restored features including striking arched windows. The outside of the property has been landscaped and there is secure parking and an outdoor meeting area.
“We think the Mill could offer an ideal space for a small production team, photoshoot or commercial shoot, or provide a breathtaking location for those seeking a truly stunning historic building.”
Ann Turner, AMFREC
