Row of eight houses (set in pairs under four roof levels). Probably 1790s, built for Richard Arkwright to accommodate workers for his textile mills, with some later alterations. Coursed rubble rendered throughout; Welsh slate roofs. Similar in plan to Arkwright's Phase I type, ie, originally single unit with rear services, 3 storeys, side stairs against end and party walls 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, here with cambered window arches throughout, originally all had 36-pane timber framed windows with slender glazing bars and small central opening light (these survive to all floors of Nos 31 and 37 only). Doorway detailing obscured by render. Moulded eaves cornice and plinth. Red and black brick ridge stacks (two reduced). Modern 2-light casements to all windows except Nos 31, 37 and 39, the latter having 4-pane horned sashes. No. 25 has a C19 shop window. Half-glazed or panelled doors. The rear elevation of this row is remarkably intact: original small single-light windows to upper floors and some to ground; low, lean-to sculleries all paired except to end houses. Two sets of privies at the end of the gardens (understood to incorporate early thunderboxes) are included in this listing.
