History

The building appears to have been built for domestic use, and may be the original keeper's accommodation. If so, it was built by Joseph Nelson in 1809.

Exterior

Render over rubble stone with slate roof. Single storeyed, with doorway against axial chimney stack in S wall. Additional doorway (probably a later insertion) in the E gable end, alongside a truncated chimney. 3 small windows in S elevation, 2 boarded over, the other with small panes.

Reasons for Listing

An important part of the whole context of South Stack Lighthouse, and of particular interest as a possible early keeper's cottage.
