Type and Period (1)
- TERRACE (Georgian to 21st Century - 1775 AD? to 2050 AD)
Nos. 64-67 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.' (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 [although these end four houses are a bit of an anomaly, being built in stone and ascending in individual steps]. Each house has its own garden with allotments behind. There are now 62 dwellings in all.'
