WHITWORTH SHELL on gable end

Whitworth shell darley dale
Joseph Whitworth had a number of stone houses built on Church Road and Green Lane, their gables topped with wooden replicas of the shells fired by his famous cannon. Over time, these wooden shells have rotted away, leaving the remnants of just one survivor on Church Road in Darley Dale.
