Full Description

A grade II listed early 19th century pair of houses, one building adjoining Nos 7-20 to the east [SMR 28783]. They are built of red brick with a slate roof. They are two and a half storeys, with an attic window in the gable end. They have one window each, with plain modern glazing in former window spaces, and centre doors with cambered head linings. Included for group value. (1) Long Row contains perhaps the most impressive example of industrial housing built in the town by Jedediah Strutt [also see SMR 28783-28789]. (2) 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. There are now 62 dwellings in all. (3)
