History: The eastern arm of the Montgomeryshire Canal was constructed between 1794-97. The warehouse was built in the early C19 - part of a second phase of development of the canal wharf at Welshpool. It was occupied in 1845 by a canal merchant (Thomas Groom) and in 1859 by the canal company.

Description: Roughly coursed and squared local green rubble, with slate roof. Gable facing canal has full-height loading bay divided as a door on each floor, in a heavy wood frame. Remains of housing for former external crane visible above. Return elevation to NE has similar wide openings, and a small boarded window beneath the eaves.

The warehouse is a fine example of small-scale canal architecture which forms part of a group of related structures associated with the major canal wharf at Welshpool.
