Canalside cottage on the market


A RARE opportunity has arisen to buy a Georgian cottage alongside the Grand Union Canal at New Bridge, Long Buckby Wharf.

canalside cottage

It was built around the same time as this part of the canal which was constructed in 1820 and as with the neighbouring cottages, was intended to house canal workers and lock keepers. It is now in a conservation area.
There is lots of wildlife on and around the canal and to quote the current owner: “It’s like living in front of a moving landscape.” There is very little light pollution so it’s also great for stargazers.

Turn left and you can walk to Whilton Marina or turn right and walk to the canalside pub, The New Inn.
However there is no direct access by vehicle to the front or back door, but there is parking available over the bridge. The property can be accessed either directly from the towpath, via the front porch or from the rear access footpath via a modern conservatory.
