In 1988 it was described as having been recently restored with the assistance of Derbyshire County Council. (2) Grade II listed early 19th century pinfold built of dressed and rubble-coursed coal measures sandstone. It comprises a stone walled enclosure, with semi-circular copings, carried across openings as lintels, a wooden barred grill to the right of the doorway and a wooden gate in the doorway, with the lintel inscribed '……….
