SK3454 : Through Wheatsheaf House

taken 9 years ago, near to Crich, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Through Wheatsheaf House
Through Wheatsheaf House
It's unusual for a public footpath to run right through a house like this, but I believe this to have been former the Wheatsheaf Inn. In the foreground is a footbridge across the alignment of the narrow gauge railway into the old Church Quarry, which was a branch off the railway to Crich Quarry. There is an additional connection in as much as George Stephenson who engineered the railway (he was a director of the quarry company), used to stay at the Wheatsheaf when visiting Crich.
