A Grade II listed row of houses with shops, probably dating to the 1790 with some later alterations, and built for Richard Arkwright to accommodate textile workers for his mills. Built of coursed rubble and rendered throughout, with tiled roofs. No. 3 is probably later (although pre-dating 1841) and is of two storeys. Nos 5-13 were originally six houses (under two roof levels to allow for the slope) and are similar in plan to 'Arkwright's Phase I' type: i.e. two unit (with integral services to rear); side stairs to the end and party walls behind and to one side of the front entrance; two bays, the entrance bay with no windows above the door, the other with windows to each floor. The window form differs from the other 'Phase I' houses in that these have, or had, timber-framed 30-pane frames with slender glazing bars and a small central opening light. These survive to all floors of Nos 9 and 11, to upper floors of Nos 7 and 9, but have been removed from No. 13. The doorway forms are obscured by render. There are moulded stone eaves cornice; roof-ridge chimney-stacks (two rendered, one of black and red brick). There are additional structures to the rear of Nos. 3, 5 and 7 ( the first with curved corner, the second detached and set end-on to back lane, the third parallel to the main range); all of random rubble with tiled roofs, pre-date 1841 and are included in this listing. See list description for further details. (1)
