Situated at the head (NPRN 405139) of incline stage 1 (NPRN 91648) of the Llanfoist Inclines (NPRN 405096) are the remains at foundation level, of a rectangular stone building 8.5m long by 4.1m wide, set to the north of the incline plane. This building is shown on the 1844 tithe map of Llanfoist when it was linked with a small plot of land, described as a garden, directly to the south, the boundary of which is still visible on the ground. The tithe award notes that the Earl of Abergavenny owned this land with James Jones the occupier. It seems likely that the building would have been associated with the inclines, possibly occupied by am employee of the Blaenavon Iron and Coal Company, such as the incline manager.

This building was surveyed by RCAHMW in February 2006 as part of an investigation of the Llanfoist Inclines.
