Cymerau was a farm of "5.16.0 acres" (c2.35ha), owned by Hugh Jones in 1838. Following upon a lease of 1853, Cymerau Quarries were opened by H N Hughes, and later operated as Hughes and Nephew, cottages being built for quarry workers in the mid-late C19. The quarry ceased trading after 1933.
No 1 is severely altered, with C20 uPVC windows and door in the original openings.
Included as one of a row of slate quarrymen's cottages, one of the few remaining rows of such cottages erected at the height of the prosperity of quarrying, probably in the 1860-70's, and as such, an interesting survival of a major industry in the Corris area.
