ST 76 SW COMBE HAY COURSE OF DISUSED SOMERSET COAL CANAL 8/28 Caisson House GV II House, possibly a remodelling of a row of earlier cottages. Circa 1830s, probably for the Somerset Coal Canal Company. Ashlar, C20 tiled roof behind a parapet which has pierced triangular cresting, moulded cornice. 2 storeys. 9 bays with pilaster strips at the ends and between bays 2 and 3, 4 and 5, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8, rising through the parapet as pedestals. Glazing bar sash windows in raised pain surrounds; canted bay windows to bays 3 and 7. Central door in projecting ashlar porch with moulded surround and cornice. The house is so named due to its proximity to the site of the 1790s caisson lock which was the initial and innovatory means of achieving the change in level on this branch of the canal.
