History

The sole remaining survivors of waterfront building along the Brent that have been recognisable icons in photos and artworks from the mid-nineteenth Century. A great deal of restoration would need to be done to repair the violation of the garage lean-to.

According to evidence from the BHS Project, these cottages were thought to be inhabited by canal people and workers at the local Jam factory.
