Nos 21 and 23
SK 2856/2956 1/108


Pair of houses. Probably 1790s, built for Richard Arkwright to accommodate textile
workers for his mills, with later alterations. Random rubble, No. 21 rendered;
reconstituted slab roof to No. 21, Welsh slate to No. 23. Similar in plan to
Arkwright Phase I type, ie originally single unit with rear services, No. 23 with
integral side lean-to outshut; 3 storeys, side stairs against party wall 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, those to No. 23 retaining an
early form (ie under cambered arches), those to No. 21 enlarged; doorways with large
lintels (not visible to No. 21); moulded stone eaves cornice and plinth. Modern
top-openers and central swivel windows to Nos 21 and 23 respectively; modern
part-glazed doors. Central red and black brick stack. Small roughly coursed rubble
wing and a late C20 flat roofed extension to rear. Although considerably altered,
these houses retain much of their original plan and appearance and make an important
contribution to the street scene.
