Full Description

Nos. 40-53 Long Row, Belper, a late 18th or early 19th 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 southern two-storey terrace is constructed primarily in brick and ascends the rising groud in stepped pairs. 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 (South Side) Nos 40 to 53 (consec) SK 3447 NE 1/32 28.9.76 II GV 2.
