    The Homestead in Spondon Derbyshire is clearly a village house in a village that is now a suburb of Derby, rather than a town house.

    • Editor says:

      Thanks Philip, that’s a fair point, although I was only trying to distinguish it from the country houses. When it was built, it was probably a village house, but with the spreading town/city of Derby, it’s getting harder to say whether Spondon is still a separate village or is absorbed into the overall town/city of Derby (Spondon is now an electoral ward in Derby). It depends on who you ask, your definition of a village versus a town, and whether you are talking about now or in the past. To avoid controversy or confusion, I have removed the ‘townhouse’ phrase from the Houses post.
