History: The cottage was built between 1819 and 1821 by the Eastern Branch of the Montgomeryshire Canal, and further extended in the early C19.

Exterior: Painted brick with dentilled eaves band and slate roof: gable end stacks. 2 storeys, 2-unit plan, with central doorway in shallow gabled timber porch facing the lock. Single 2-light casement window over the doorway, but otherwise no windows on this elevation. Small-paned casement windows alongside the gable end stacks, and in E facing elevation, with plain timber lintels. The single storeyed extension to the N is a C20 remodelling of an earlier addition.

Listed as a well-preserved surviving example of an early Montgomeryshire Canal Lock-keeper's house, and part of a group of canal-structures at Pool Quay.
