EYTON-UPON-THE-WEALD-MOORS Lock Keeper's Cottage
SJ 61 NE 23/251
Early C19 lock keeper's cottage on the Shrewsbury branch of the Shropshire Union
Canal. Probably of early 1830s date when the Shrewsbury Company planned to widen
the locks and bridges of the Shrewsbury Canal to take standard narrow boats. Only
the 2 Eyton locks and the bridges on the Wappenhall to Shrewsbury section were
Red brick with low pitched hipped slate roof with wide eaves. Two storeys. Four
bays. Modern casements in full height round-arched recesses with plain stone imposts.
The entrance bay to right of centre is narrower and has modern brick porch. The
ground floor windows have segmental arched openings. At first floor level the arches
have been infilled with new brick around new casements, and walls have blind arches.
Modern brick wing at rear.
