It stands on a narrow neck of land with the River Trent on its south side and the Trent & Mersey Canal to the north, separated from the house by the lane called Canal Bank. The house was probably built about 1830-40, perhaps as an inn. It was a Post Office in 1901, and remained so until 1955. (1) No. 1 Canal Bank is an early 19th century house with later alterations. It is built from rendered brick with a 20th century hipped concrete tile roof, a central brick ridge chimney stack ad stepped eaves band. It is three storeys, with three bays.
