Full Description

This house was built by the Harpur Crewe Estate in about 1800. It probably consisted originally of two rooms running east-west, later extended to the eastwards with a kitchen added at the back. Subsequently the western room was demolished, and the remaining part refronted with new brickwork and the eaves raised. When the house became a police station, a cell with thick walls and barrel-vaulted ceiling was built on beyond the back kitchen and reached only from there. It ceased to be a police station in the 1940s, and the cell window was enlarged for domestic purposes. The property still belongs to the Harpur Crewe Estate and is used to accommodate the church organist.
