History

Built c1835 as part of a single development which also included Bodowen. Together these buildings appear to have formed a small planned development associated with the Welshpool Company Flannel Factory (later the Powysland Mills), which lay immediately to the S. The factory was established in 1835, closed in 1900, and was demolished in 1930.
