Derbyhaven Herring Houses

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 228435

NGR Northing: 467620

Description: Modern well.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1868 shows two long buildings and several smaller associated structures forming a complex at this location, arranged around an enclosed yard, and including what may be a walled garden.

The original herring houses were built, together with a large house, by John Joseph Bacon in 1771, at a cost of £1,200.

The walled yard associated with the herring house complex has now been largely redeveloped, particularly at its northern end, but the rear (west) boundary wall still survives, despite several breaches. A well, capped by a pump at the time of the original OS, has been covered in.
