Devonshire House, Derby AA42_00925
Devonshire House, 32 - 36 Corn Market, Derby. The exterior of Devonshire House at 32-36 Corn Market. Devonshire House was built in the mid 18th century as the Derby town house of the Dukes of Devonshire - a place to reside when in Derby for pleasure or civic business. During the 19th and 20th centuries this once grand house saw a gradual decline in social status, prompted in circa 1814, when the 6th Duke opted to stay in alternative accommodation when in town. Devonshire House was converted for commercial use, with shops moving into the ground floor rooms and a market hall being built on the garden. Today only the northern 4 bays (those further from the camera) survive. The remainder was demolished in 1969, to be replaced by a Littlewood's Store (now Primark)
