Full Description

SK 34331 43476. This dwelling consists of two cottages out of a row, now combined as one. The cottages south of it were demolished in 1959. The house is close to the bridge over the River Ecclesbourne. It stands one and a half storeys high, with brick walls on a stone plinth along its front; the whole is pebble dashed. The house may have been built with timber walls on a stone plinth, but there is no conclusive evidence for this. The end walls were probably always stone, to support the chimneys. It is suggested that the row of cottages may have been built for servants of Tamworth Hall in about 1690-1720. The house was formerly thatched, but this was removed in 1956. (1)
