History

The Montgomeryshire Canal was built as far as Garthmyl between 1794 and 1797, engineered by John and Thomas Dadford. The lock forms part of this original construction, and there was a cottage here by at least 1840. The present house is a later reconstruction (possibly built as part of a programme of work carried out by the Shropshire Union Railways and Canal Company in the later C19). It appears to have comprised 2 dwellings originally.

Exterior
