Full Description

Derwent Hotel, Main Road, Crich, a late 18th century public house. 'The Derwent Hotel consists of course squared gritstone two storey buildings in a linked range. The main building is to the east side with plain gables, two brick stacks, one intermediate and one on the gable. There is an extension to the west. The building is shown on the 1811 Canal Survey as the Ship Inn. The name could be taken to indicate that it was built to serve the canal. The 1876 OS survey shows it as the Bull's Head, while the revision of 1898 shows it as the Derwent Hotel. There are coursed squared gritstone two-storey buildings behind the hotel, which are not indicated on the 1811 survey. The buildings are currently in use as kitchens for the hotel.'
