1. CROMFORD HILL 1390 CROMFORD No 165 Dene Top Cottage SK 2856/2956 1/115 II GV 2. House. Possibly late-C17 or early C18, considerably altered and partially rebuilt in C19. Coursed rubble; tiled roofs. Originally a three-unit plan house set end-on to Cromford Hill. The roadside unit was replaced by a cross range in the early C19 (present on the 1841 Tithe Map). 2-storeys. Front: symmetrical 2-window range all windows with large rectangular lintels and later-C19 4-pane horned sashes. 2 rendered ridge stacks. Left return rendered. The rear range is the older part: irregular fenestration with one large 2-light window with renewed mullion and late-C20 top-opener with small panes to 1st floor; 2 smaller ground-floor windows under large lintels flanking broad doorway with half-glazed door. This might mark the original entry. Internal evidence indicates that the C19 range replaces one of the three original units. Included for group value with Nos 142-50 Cromford Hill. It is one of a small number of houses that survive from the pre-Arkwright hamlet of Cromford. Listing NGR: SK2919256374
