(2-storeyed) and Monaveen Lodge (1 1/2 storeyed) Cottages are rubble-built, mostly harled, and slated.

Statement of Interest

Built to house workers of Ellanbeich Slate Quarries.

Monaveen Lodge was the home, office and store of the manager

of the Slate quarries which were owned by the Marquess of

Breadalber. The storms of 1887 flooded the quarries and the

industry never fully recovered.
