The Hollies, No. 1 New Road, Derby, built in 1803.
In 2008 a watching brief was carried out over the demolition of a modern utility room, and the excavation of footings for the construction of an extension to the existing building. During these works, a red brick culvert thought to date to the late 18th or early 19th century was recorded, in addition to the remains of footings for an outbuilding of unknown date. (1)
