13-FEB-77 DARLEY ABBEY
CHURCH OF ST MATTHEW

GV II

1818-19 extended 1895-96. Architect: Moses Wood of Nottingham. Stone with slate roof. Gothic style church consisting of aisleless nave and pinnacled west tower. Built at the expense of Walter Evans. Chancel, sanctuary, sacristy and vestry added 1895-96 at the expense of Walter Evans II. The churchyard has slate plaques commemorating the lives of Evans employees and villagers.

The C18 and C19 houses and schoolrooms in Darley Abbey built by various generations of the Evans family for their workers are of interest as a group to be compared with the Arkwright settlement at Cromford and the Strutt settlements at Belper and Milford.
