Full Description

On Derby Road, Nos 139-143, a block of 3 3-storey framework knitter's houses having the typical long windows on the top floor. The centre one has all original windows at front, No 143 has original top floor window. (1)
Lacemakers' cottages. Now 2 houses. Early C19. (3)
A good example of the 3 storey houses with top floor workshops built for framework knitting. The terrace comprises 3 separate dwellings, each having a workshop. The workshop windows contrast with the much smaller amount of window space in the rooms below. The terrace dates from around 1830 and the houses are virtually identical with those in Stapleford. (See ill p 41). (4)
