Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A Grade II listed, early or mid-19th century, two-storey painted brick villa with a hipped slate roof, formerly the Managers House to Evan's paper mill. The windows are mostly modern except the north elevation which has one eight-pane sliding sash window. The property appears on the 1852 map but not the 1811 Liberty Map. The 18th and 19th century houses and schoolrooms in Darley Abbey were built or acquired by various generations of the Evans family for their workers, and are of interest as a group to be compared with the Arkwright settlement at Cromford and the Strutt settlements at Belper and Milford.
