Late C18 and early C19. Group of two pairs of two storey and two pairs of three storey brick built cottages with slate roofs. Some timber sash windows and modillion eaves. The two storeyed Nos 6A and 7 and Nos 9A and 10 probably pre-date the Evans family building campaign and were acquired by the family c 1790. The three storeyed Nos 8 and 9 appear to have been built between the older pairs by 1811 while the three storeyed Nos 5 and 6 are later but before 1852. The C18 and C19 houses and schoolrooms in Darley Abbey built or acquired by various generations of the Evans family for their workers are of interest as a group to be compared with the Arkwright settlement at Cromford and the Strutt settlements at Belper and Milford.
