(present on the 1841 Tithe Map). 2-storeys. Front: symmetrical 2-window range all
windows with large rectangular lintels and later-C19 4-pane horned sashes.
2 rendered ridge stacks. Left return rendered. The rear range is the older part:
irregular fenestration with one large 2-light window with renewed mullion and
late-C20 top-opener with small panes to 1st floor; 2 smaller ground-floor windows

the three original units. Included for group value with Nos 142-50 Cromford Hill.
