Outbuilding at Elms Farm, Duffield Road, Little Eaton, a late 18th century building.
The building was subject to an historic fabric survey carried out in 2006: '…L-shaped west range comprises a long single storey cowhouse running north - south and facing the crewyard, and a two-storey granary and cart shed running east - west, with access to the fields. Both parts are built of coursed squared gritstone and gritstone dressings, internal brickwork and roofing of corrugated asbestos and Welsh slate. The cowhouse, running north of the granary, is about 10 - 12 narrow bays long and consists of a series of rooms and byres,… A doorway in the rear wall is a later insertion, as is the slightly irregular henhouse and adjoining toilet added on the west side. The enclosure plan of 1789 indicates that the cowhouse was added to the pre-existing east - west range.' (1)
