Full Description

Nos. 25-36 Long Row, Belper, a late 18th century terrace. 'Long Row contains perhaps the most impressive example of industrial housing built in the town by Jedediah Strutt. The stone houses on the north side date from 1792-3, and the brick-built ones on the south side from the early 19th century.' (1) 'Long Row is industrial housing of a high quality. There were originally 77 houses in the Long Row. It was built in the form of three terraces, two of which were continuous until broken by the North Midland Railway in 1840. The 35 three-storey houses are constructed predominately in sandstone with a continuous sloping eaves line. They are designed with interlocking plans formed around the staircase. Each house has its own garden with allotments behind. There are now 62 dwellings in all.' (2) From the National Heritage List for England: 'LONG ROW 1. 5167 Nos 25 to 36 (consec) SK 3447 NE 1/31 28.9.76. II GV 2. 1794-1797.
