These two 3 storey terraces of mill workers houses were amongst the earliest houses to be built by the Evans family in 1792. Generations of the Evans family built or obtained houses in the Darley Abbey area and used them for their workers to live in. They also provided purpose built schoolrooms. The area can be compared with the Arkwright settlement at Cromford and the Strutt settlements at Belper and Milford.
