I quote from Andrew Roberts Email to me.

‘Derwentcote also once housed a forge used for various processes (as I am sure you probably know). It has not been the focus of our work due to it being almost obliterated in the 19th century and until recently not accessible to the public. However Derwentcote was an early adopter of the Cort process in 1784, albeit it seems to have been adapted and/or abandoned very quickly afterwards.’
