Full Description

A late 17th or early 18th century Grade II listed building with later alterations and extensions, originally a farmhouse and now two houses. Built of roughly coursed rubble with tiled roofs and two storeys, the plan is of one long range with a lower front wing to the right. Originally a 3-unit, baffle-entry farmhouse of which the parlour survives (to the right), a vertical masonry joint to left of the entry indicates rebuilding of the late-18th or early-19th century. There are three ridge chimney-stacks to the long range and an end chimney stack to the wing, all of red brick. This building occupies a prominent position at the top of Cromford Hill and groups with Nos 142-148 [SMR 33901] and 150 opposite. It is one of the small number of houses that remain from the pre-Arkwright hamlet of Cromford. See list description for further details. (1)
