Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A Grade II listed group of two pairs of two storey and two pairs of three storey brick built cottages with slate roofs, dated to the late 18th century and early 19th century. There are some timber sash windows and modillion eaves. The two storeyed Nos 6A and 7 and Nos 9A and 10 probably pre-date the Evans family building campaign and were acquired by the family c 1790. The three storeyed Nos 8 and 9 appear to have been built between the older pairs by 1811 while the three storeyed Nos 5 and 6 are later but before 1852. 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. See list description for further details. (1)
