Listed Building record MDR16320 - 21 and 23, The Hill (B5036), Cromford Hill, Cromford

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A pair of Grade II listed houses, probably built in the 1790s, for Richard Arkwright to accommodate textile workers for his mills, with later alterations. Built with random work rubble: No. 21 is rendered; No. 21 has a reconstituted slab roof; No 23 has a Welsh slate roof. Similar in plan to the 'Arkwright Phase I' type: i.e. originally a single unit with rear services, No. 23 has an integral side lean-to outshut; three storeys, side stairs against party wall 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 window to each floor. There is a central red and black brick chimney-stack, a small roughly coursed rubble wing and a late 20th century flat roofed extension to the rear. Although considerably altered, these houses retain much of their original plan and appearance and make an important contribution to the street scene. See List Description for further details. (1)
