History: The Eastern Branch of the Montgomeryshire Canal was built between 1794 and 1797, engineered by John and Thomas Dadford. George Buck was engineer between 1819 and 1831 and carried out work on the locks: it seems likely that the cottage was built during this period.

Exterior: Brick with slate roof on broad overhanging eaves. 2 storeyed, single unit plan, with shallow rear wing. Doorway to the left, and 3-light casement window alongside; similar upper windows both have bracketed stone sills.

Listed as a good surviving example of an early C19 lock cottage, which forms part of a group with the lock and bridge.
