Northwood, 2 Derwent Lane - at south end of former Rowsley Sidings. On W face (former railway side - now access route to Peak Rail's Rowsley South station) at what would (before the cottage was extended) have been the NW angle (not SW angle as in 2GL description). BM 110.56m on LandLine. Visited and photographed 29 May 2005 (after RHW) though, now I know where it is, I can just make it out hiding behind dense vegetation in my photographs of 21 September 2004!
