Substantial two-storey, double-fronted, early Victorian stone house, separated from the canal by a garden wall. Squared coursed gritstone with modern clay plain tile roof. Large windows with sliding sashes. High garden wall along the towpath with outbuildings. There is a door in the wall onto the towpath opposite Calladine Winding Hole. The house and outbuildings are shown on the 1878 OS map. It is suggested that the engineer George Stephenson stayed here while lime kilns were being built on the turn of the canal at Ambergate in 1840. Deeds only go back to 1903 when the property was held in trust for a member of the Hurt family. The building is an example of a grander residence built next to the canal. (1)
