Darley Abbey Mills (North Complex) North Mill, engine house, boiler house, Old Lane, Darley Abbey, Derby - Derby, City of (UA)

Former manufacturing cotton textile factory built by the Evans family of Darley Abbey. North Mill, thought to date from the mid-1820s, is a three-storey brick building with attic. Temporary high level repairs funded via a Historic England grant in 2012, but the roof needs wholesale renewal. There is extensive decay of parapets indicating leaking gutters. Spalling to brickwork at high level. Much of the building is now occupied with a mix of small office accommodation. The Council are still working with the owners to encourage comprehensive repair.
