Full Description

Duffield Bank Cottage, Duffield Bank, Duffield, a late 18th building. 'Craven believed the cottage was built in the period 1777-1787, as the building seems to have be shown on the enclosure map of 1787, while a different building seems to be shown on the terrier of 1777. The cottage was probably built for William Bates, who acquired a lease on the nearby quarry (further uphill), and had two cottages built, one for him and one for a workman, close to the track down which the stone from his quarry was carried. The cottage has two storeys and is built of millstone grit, probably from Bates's quarry. It consists of three elements: The oldest part was a simple, small two room rectangular cottage. Sometime around 1791-1821 a lean-too structure was added to the east. Finally, another extension was built to the north in the early 20th century.'
