This fabulous rural building plot adjoins an unrestored but in-water section of the Montgomery Canal, midway between Welshpool and Newtown. The plot extends to about 1.5 acres and has full planning consent for two detached houses. The plot slopes gently uphill, and the canal lies to the rear of the plot at the top of the slope, just in front of the grey house in the photographs. To the right of the grey house is Bridge 130, which was built between about 1794 and 1797.
Another fascinating feature of this plot is that it includes Garthmyl’s Southern kiln bank. There are 98 lime kilns in all along the Montgomery Canal and they are central to its history. The Southern Garthmyl kiln bank was probably established between 1820 and 1830, but was out of use by 1859. It formerly comprised five kilns, of which only two remain. The kilns are Grade 2 listed.
The buyer will need to bring electricity and water services to the property and install a private drainage system. Bear in mind that if you’d like to go and view the site, you’ll need to take a copy of the agents’ details with you.
