Probably 1790s, built for Richard Arkwright to accommo- date textile workers for his mills, with some later alterations. Coursed rubble, rendered throughout; tiled roofs. No. 3 is probably later (although pre-dating 1841) and is of 2 storeys. Nos 5-13 were originally 6 houses (under two roof levels to allow for slope) and are similar in plan to Arkwright's Phase I type, ie 2 unit (integral services to rear), side stairs to end and party walls behind and to one side of front entrance; 2 bays, the entrance bay with no windows above, the other with windows to each floor. The window form differs from the other Phase I houses in that these have, or had, timber-framed 30-pane frames with slender glazing bars and a small central opening light. These survive to all floors of Nos 9 and 11, to upper floors of Nos 7 and 9, but have been removed from No. 13. The doorway forms are obscured by render. Moulded stone eaves cornice; ridge stacks (two rendered, one of black and red brick). No. 5: upper windows with C20 2-light casements; small C19 shop window to right of half-glazed. door. No. 7 (formerly two houses) with one blocked door and 2 small shop windows (one with 2-light casements, the other with large 6-pane sash). Planked doors to no. 9 and 7; no. 13 with half-glazed door and C20 2-light casements to all windows. No. 3 has shop front that returns to left with early C19 half-glazed panelled door with rectangular overlight; one large iiindow with glazing bars to 1st floor ( to front and side). Rear with some small and possibly original windows to upper floors ( some chamfers visible) , mostly enlarged to ground floor. Structures to rear of nos. 3, 5 and 7 ( the first with curved corner, the second detached and set end-on to back lane, the third parallel 'to main range) all of random rubble with tiled roofs, pre-date 1841 and are included in this listing.
