History

Early to mid C19 terrace of three cottages. Although known as Chapel Cottages they are more likely to be associated with the history of the Brecknock and Abergavenny Canal (now known as the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal). This was constructed between 1797 and 1812 and Govilon was an important point on the canal for the local coal and iron industry, as it was the terminus for Bailey's tramroad, opened in 1821, down from Nantyglo Ironworks. It is likely that these are industrial workers cottages dating from this period.

Reasons for Listing

Included as good examples of C19 workers' housing probably associated with the canal and for group value with Llanwenarth Baptist Chapel.
