73-91 (odd)
SK 2856/2956 1/113


Row of ten houses. Probably 1830s with later alterations built for workers in the
Arkwright mills. The row rises up Cromford Hill under three different roof levels.
Coursed rubble; Welsh slate roofs to Nos 77, 89 and 91, tiles to Nos 79, 81 and 83;
corrugated concrete elsewhere. A 2-storeyed variant on the Phase I Arkwright plan
type with side stairs against end and party walls; 2-bay front elevations, the
entrance bay with no window above. The windows retain the original cambered arches.
Doorways with large lintels of inverted T section cut to increase headroom in Nos 81
and 85. Windows all late-C20 as are most of the doors. Red and black brick ridge
stacks, renewed to Nos 89-91. Rear elevation has some original window openings to
both floors (single light with stone surrounds). C20 reconstituted stone tensions
to Nos 89 and 91. Although altered these buildings retain their general
characteristics and mark an important stage in the development of Cromford's
industrial houses. They are contemporary with Nos 49-69, Cromford Hill (q.v., ref
1/112 ).
