Full Description

A Grade II row of three (originally four) cottages, dated early 19th century (they are marked on the 1841 Tithe Map) with a later 19th century extension to the right. Built of coursed rubble to two storeys under Welsh slate roofs with three red and black brick roof-ridge chimney-stacks. No. 20 (with later extension, see vertical masonry joint) forms a three-window range overall, with regular fenestration, the ground-floor windows under large rectangular lintels. There is a door to the extension and four symmetrically placed sash windows to the right end wall. No. 22 has a double-fronted symmetrical two-window range with a raised panel double door. No. 24 has a blocked door to the right. There are horned sash windows to Nos 20 and 24, and hornless to No. 22. Although not part of the original Arkwright houses development this row makes an important contribution to the townscape situated opposite the entrance to North Street. (1)
