Darley Abbey Mills (South Complex) Long Mill, East Mill and West Mill, Old Lane, Darley Abbey, Derby - Derby, City of (UA)

Former manufacturing cotton textiles factory built by the Evans family of Darley Abbey. Long Mill was rebuilt and enlarged following fire damage in 1788. West Mill was added c1819-21. The exteriors of both buildings have decayed over time with significant loss of render to upper storeys (Long Mill), cavernous stone decay and localised evidence of faulty rainwater goods leading to water ingress. Significant roof repairs are required to two mill buildings. Repairs to Long Mill are currently underway. The conversion of West Mill and Long Mill is now complete. .
