A Grade II listed terrace of three staff houses for Samuel Evans of Darley Abbey, constructed in the late 1830s and altered in the 1960s and in 2006. Built of red brick laid in mixed stretcher and Flemish bond under a gabled roof covered with blue Staffordshire tiles, the range is a short terrace of three houses with rear service extensions and detached outbuildings. The two-storey façade faces south and has four first-floor windows and three ground-floor two-light casements dating to 2006. Three plank doors under segmental heads have small viewing panes and lead into the three houses, two left of centre and one at the extreme east end. The plank passage door to the left is set within a semi-circular-headed recess. There is an internal gable-end chimney-stack to the west serving No.3, and a wider roof-ridge chimney-stack right of centre serving Nos. 4 and 5. The rear elevation has two lean-to two-storey extensions. To the rear are three, free-standing, single-storey, brick outbuildings under gabled roofs, clad with blue Staffordshire tiles, and entered through plank doors in the south side. To the west of each door is a two-light timber casement. Nos. 3, 4 and 5 Abbey Yard forms a group with Nos. 1 and 2 Abbey Yard [SMR32865] and the former stables to Darley Abbey [SMR32536], all listed at Grade II. See list description for further details.
