Compton House/Lloyds Bank
Compton House/Lloyds Bank

The grade II listed building LinkExternal link was designed by architect Joseph Pickford (noted for the Assembly Rooms in Derby) for Francis Beresford. Francis Beresford (1737 - 1801) was an attorney who made his fortune from coal mining and the Butterley Company at Ripley.

"In 1765 Francis acquired land in the Compton. He was twenty-eight years old and about to marry. There is no record of a previous building and it is surprising that the building butts onto the road rather than being set back. The facade is in stone but the sides and back are in brick. The gardens at this time stretched back to the current location of Station Rd and the Station Hotel." LinkExternal link

Now it is a branch of Lloyds Bank.
