Type and Period (3)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A row of three Grade II listed terraced houses built in the 1780s for Richard Arkwright to accommodate workers for his textile mills. Built of coursed rubble with tiled roofs under two levels, there are two roof-ridge chimney-stacks, one in red and black brick, the other renewed in brick. The building plan is similar to the 'Arkwright phase I' type: i.e. a three storey single unit with services to the rear under low outshut; side stairs against the party or end walls behind and to one side of the front entrance; two-bay front elevations, the entrance bay with no windows above the door, the other with two-light stone-mullioned window to each floor; doorways with large rectangular lintels and crude capitals and bases to the imposts, all tooled. There are 20th century doors and casements throughout. See list description for further details. (1)
