Uncover the history of Pickford’s House with Dr Maxwell Craven

Derby Museums invites you to join local historian Maxwell Craven as we explore the history of Pickford’s House. Focusing on several previously unresolved questions such as ‘what is the date the house was built?’ ‘How was it paid for?’ and ‘how was it somewhat out of the ordinary with other similar houses built around the same time?’

Learn how Pickford’s House was used in Joseph Pickford’s lifetime, what changed following Joseph’s death and the alterations and restoration to the house in subsequent years, and how it became a part of Derby Museums.
