Full Description

A late nineteenth century house. The house is built of red brick beneath a gabled slate roof. The front elevation is two and a half storeys tall. There is a single storey canted bay window and, above, a pair of vertical sashes with glazing bars. This was the home of Samuel Shaw (1862-1941), a brick manufacturer and Mayor of Ilkeston in 1910-12. It was also the home of his son Brian Duncan Shaw (1898-1999), a chemist. This building is considered to have special historic interest due to its close historic association with Brian Duncan Shaw, a figure of national interest. (1)
