HISTORY: This pair of cottages was built for the collection of tolls for the canal company and housed the lock keeper. Stourport experienced rapid growth as an inland canal port after the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal Company selected the site as its trans-shipment port and Severn terminus. This building directly relates to the canal itself, and other late Georgian houses associated with this import period in the town's growth and its significance in the context of the Industrial Revolution.
