The property is Grade II Listed and located within the Crickhowell conservation area.

The D1 category includes clinics, health centres, creches, day nurseries, day centres, schools, art galleries, museums, libraries, places of worship, public halls, exhibition halls, church halls, law courts and non residential education and training centres.
