The caption may say Matlock, but this is the southern end of Matlock Bath. It shows the riverbank below Cromford Court, near Masson Mill; the mill itself is hidden by trees. The scene is below the Masson Mill weir but upriver from Willersley.

Most of the buildings in the picture were demolished when the A6 road was widened[1]. On the left is the Glenorchy Manse where Sir George Newnes, the editor of "Titbits", was born[2]. Seemingly next door, but actually on the other side of the road, is the longish roofline of the three houses of Fairview Terrace. Next is Boston House, which was a slightly lower building. A very small portion of the Rutland Arms can also be seen. The corner of Masson House, which was almost unaffected by the road widening, is just to the left of the trees. Behind Fairview Terrace are some cottages at South End, which is also survive.
