History

One of a terraced row of five mid to later C19 cottages, marked on 1877 OS map. The best surviving range of such cottages in the region. The development of Ystradgynlais and the surrounding valleys was by the building of short terraces on existing roads, initially for workers in the limestone quarries, later for colliery workers. These houses are probably associated with stone quarrying.

Exterior

No 78 has plastic front door and overlight and C20 rebuilt red brick right end stack, shared with No 76. White terracotta ridge tiles.

Interior

Not inspected.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a terraced house, one of the least altered row in the district, with distinctive multi-coloured stonework.
