History: 4 cottages associated with the Belan lime-kilns were in existence by 1840; but some time after 1859 they were replaced by the present houses, built by the Powis Estate.

Exterior: Brick to side walls and rear, the sides painted in imitation of timber framing; front wall is also painted in imitation of framing, apparently onto boards superimposed on a frame. This painting forms a series of quatrefoil panels. Slate roofs with brick axial stack. Symmetrically planned, each cottage has outer doorway with battened plank door, and 2-light iron mullioned and transomed window with small panes to ground floor; small 2-light small paned iron casement window in gabled dormer above. No 4 has single storeyed outbuilding attached to the left.

The cottages form a striking example of the picturesque vernacular of the late C19 - and excellent examples of estate housing which form part of a group of structures at Belan Locks.
