Full Description

In c. 1899/1900 houses were built for the workers at William Fletcher's lace factory. (1) Adjacent to the former Chaddesden lace works of William Fletcher & Sons [SMR 32163] on the east side are terraces of five and twelve houses constructed for the employees of the factory. William Fletcher established this lace works in c.1900 so presumably the houses were built around the same time. (2) The 2nd ed. 25" OS map shows that the terrace of five houses was originally seven and the terrace of twelve was originally ten. It is these that have been plotted on the map. (3)
