Full Description

A house, built in 1873. Designed by Stevens & Robinson for Charles Schwind JP, chairman of Andrew Handyside & Co, iron founders. Later occupied by George William Crompton JP. The house is built of rockfaced stone beneath a gabled slate roof. The garden elevation features a central entrance door flanked by two-storey canted bays. A refectory block of 1982 links the house to a contemporary stable block. The house was sold to the Derbyshire Farm Institute in 1947. College buildings to the north-east of the site are not of special interest. The house may possess some special historic interest due to its close historic associations with Charles Schwind JP and George William Crompton JP, both of whom are figures of local interest. (1)
