Full Description

Warehouses for the transhipment of goods to and from the Alfreton-Wirksworth Turnpike Road. Two buildings on the edge of Cromford Canal, partly enclosed by a small wharf. The buildings do not appear until after 1836, speculation is that they were built as accommodation while the wharf to the west was being rebuilt. The warehouse shown on the 1811 map could well have been replaced by a house at this time. The structure has now been converted into dwellings. (1)
