Date:September 1964

Description:The bungalow stands at the southern end of Duke Street just before the railway bridge. The spoil tip immediately behind belonged to Fenton (Glebe) Colliery and brickworks. A mineral line ran in a cutting behind the houses to connect the colliery to the Stoke to Derby railway line.
The bungalow still stands although the spoil top behind has been levelled and landscaped and forms part of Glebedale Park.
