Regularly-coursed gritstone, beneath a hipped roof with a Welsh slate covering, laid to diminishing courses on the rear slope, and partially replaced in concrete tile at the north end. 3 red brick chimney stacks with blue brick detailing, 2 at the ridge, 1 at the north end. FRONT (east) elevation: 3-storey, 5-window front, with C20 casement frames having replaced earlier sash windows, except at No.36, which retains a first floor margin glazed sash window above a late C19 shop front and entrance door. No.34 has a canted bay window with a pitched roof and sash window frames. No.30 has a flat roofed bay window subdivided by glazing bars. REAR (west) elevation: window openings with flush stone surrounds, some formerly of 2 lights with flush mullions, such as remain at No.34. Other openings, including single light windows now with late C20 frames. INTERIORS: not inspected. HISTORY: these buildings formed part of the development of the late C18 market facility developed by Sir Richard Arkwright in the growing industrial settlement at Cromford. They stand next to the centrepiece of that development, The Greyhound Hotel (qv) with which they form an important group, and they represent the ongoing development of purpose-built housing to serve the population of the world?s first textile mill community.
