Unnumbered houses to the north side between No. 1 North street and No. 45 Cromford Hill
Two houses. Possibly C18 (marked in outline but not numbered on Tithe Map of 1841). The bonding between the right-hand house and No. 1 North Street suggests that the former pre-dates the latter (qv). Coursed rubble; tiled roofs under two levels. 2 brick ridge stacks. 2 storeys. The left-hand house once served as an inn and may originally have been a 3-room plan farmhouse, and the other formerly a barn (or warehouse: see ventilators to rear). 3-window range with blocked doorway between the two left window bays. 2 sash and one casement windows to first floor; one horned sash and 2 C20 casement windows to ground. Blocked doorway with massive lintel and jamb blocks. The other house a 2-window range; all windows in early openings, C20 frames with glazing bars. Rear with external steps and ventilator openings; otherwise windows renewed.
