Description


1. CROMFORD HILL
1390 CROMFORD

Nos 93-101
SK 2856/2956 1/114

II GV

2.
Row of five houses. Probably built in the 1780s for Richard Arkwright to
accommodate textile workers for his mills. The row rises up Cromford Hill under
three roof lines. Coursed rubble; Welsh slate roofs to Nos 97 and 101, corrugated
concrete elsewhere. Plan: Arkwright's Phase I type, ie single unit with rear
services (here under catslide), 3-storeys, side stairs against end and party walls
behind and to one side of front entrance; 2-bay front elevation, the entrance bay
with no windows above; the other originally with 2-light stone mullioned windows to
each floor which survive intact to all floors of Nos 93, 97 and 99; No. 95 has
original surrounds but has lost its mullions; windows of No. 101 renewed entirely.
Casements to all except Nos 95 and 101 which have top-openers and 4-pane sashes
respectively. Doorways with substantial rectangular lintels and crude capitals and
bases to all houses (blocked to No. 101). Doors partly glazed of various C20 dates.
Three red and black brick ridge stacks. Rear with most lst-floor original openings
intact; 2 2-storeyed extensions. No. 101 is deeper in plan than the others, with a
side entrance; the lack of any masonry joint suggests that the larger size is an
early feature.
