SK 2856/2956 1/123
Row of five houses. Built 1780s in a single phase for Richard Arkwright to
accommodate workers for his textile mills. The row rises up Cromford Hill under
three roof lines. Coursed rubble; tiled roofs. 3 red and black brick ridge stacks.
Plan similar to Arkwright phase I type: single unit with rear services under
catslide; 3 storeys; side stairs against end and party walls; 2-bay front
elevations, the entrance bay with no windows above, the other with 2-light stone-
mullioned windows to all floors; doorway with large rectangular lintels and crude
capitals and bases to imposts, all tooled. All doorways survive intact; the window
surrounds survive also, but mullions to No. 86 only. C20 casements to all except
No. 88 (top-hunt) openers) and No. 92 which has a bow window inserted into original
opening to ground-floor. C20 doors throughout. The low raised pavements to the
front of the row may be original and are included in this listing.
