Full Description

Nos. 23-33 Stone Row, Golden Valley, Riddings, a late 18th century terrace. Stone Row, Golden Valley. Row of late 18th century local sandstone cottages, being the earliest surviving Butterley Company housing for workers at their local enterprise. The cottages were condemned in the 1970s but after a vigorous campaign by local historical and conservation societies, became the flagship of Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust's rescue plan for Golden Valley. They have been conserved in essentially their original form with the only concession to commercialism being the conversion of two original cottages into one current property.
