Hulme’s Fish Shop was built around 1710 as a gentleman’s residence for a clergyman. The building is unusual in Ashbourne in having the front divided into three bays by giant fluted pilasters – decorative features that project from the wall in the shape of a column.
The shop front was added in the 1930s when Albert Hulme converted the house into a fish, game and poultry shop, which is still in business today. There is a small coach house next to the shop and, at the back, a late 18th Century former malthouse survives.
