Full Description

Former Newlands Inn, Newlands Road, Riddings, an early 19th century building. Newlands Inn was probably constructed as a combined farm and inn in the early 19th century, to cater for the passing canal and roadside business associated with the rapid settlement of Golden Valley that occurred around that time. It is not shown on Burdett's map of 1791 but may well have been built soon after the Cromford Canal, which opened in 1794. The first reference to it comes from a trade directory of 1857, when Richard Elnor is recorded as the proprietor of "Newlands Inn". It is shown on historic maps as two 'L'-shaped buildings. One of these, the inn, survives largely in its original form, at least externally, although internally very few original features have survived a series of refurbishments. This building is Grade II listed, constructed of brick with hipped roofs to the residential accommodation, and appears to have been built in a single phase. The other building to the rear of the inn, believed to have been a stable, cowhouse and pigsties, was demolished sometime after 1938.
