Nos 49-69 (odd) with
building adjacent to No. 49
SK 2856/2956 1/112


Row of eleven houses. Probably 1830s with later alterations, built for workers in
the Arkwright mills. The row rises up Cromford Hill under six different roof
levels. Coursed rubble; Welsh slate roofs to Nos 59, 61 and 65, corrugated concrete
tiling to the others. A 2-storey variant of the Arkwright Phase I type with side
stairs against end and party walls; 2-bay front elevations, the entrance bay with
no window above. The original windows appear to have had cambered arches: original
openings survive to Nos 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 63 and 67 (both floors), Nos 49 and
67 (1st) and 61 (ground); the lintels are damaged to No. 65. Doorways have massive
rectangular lintels of inverted T section (renewed to No. 69). Doors mostly half-
glazed, and casement windows C20. Red and black brick ridge stacks. Building
attached to No. 49 with two doorways to street and loft access and doorway to end
wall. Rear elevation with small one and 2-light windows in stone surrounds to 1st
floors; some early windows and doorways survive to ground floor also. C19 wings to
Nos 49 and 65. Some C20 additions. Two privy blocks at the end of the gardens
(some understood to contain early.thunderboxes) are included in this listing.
Although altered these houses retain their general characteristics and mark an
important stage in the development of Cromford's industrial housing. They are
contemporary with Nos 73-91, Cromford Hill (q.v., ref).
