Nos 25-39 (odd)
SK 2856/2956 1/109


Row of eight houses (set in pairs under four roof levels). Probably 1790s, built
for Richard Arkwright to accommodate workers for his textile mills, with some later
alterations. Coursed rubble rendered throughout; Welsh slate roofs. Similar in
plan to Arkwright's Phase I type, ie, originally single unit with rear services,
3 storeys, side stairs against end and party walls behind and to one side of front
entrance; 2-bay front elevations, the entrance bay with no windows above, the other
with window to each floor, here with cambered window arches throughout, originally
all had 36-pane timber framed windows with slender glazing bars and small central
opening light (these survive to all floors of Nos 31 and 37 only). Doorway
detailing obscured by render. Moulded eaves cornice and plinth. Red and black
brick ridge stacks (two reduced). Modern 2-light casements to all windows except
Nos 31, 37 and 39, the latter having 4-pane horned sashes. No. 25 has a C19 shop
window. Half-glazed or panelled doors. The rear elevation of this row is
remarkably intact: original small single-light windows to upper floors and some to
ground; low, lean-to sculleries all paired except to end houses. Two sets of
privies at the end of the gardens (understood to incorporate early thunderboxes) are
included in this listing.
