Old toll house for sale

Published: Thursday, 14 February 2019

ANOTHER former toll house is being offered for sale.

This former toll house, that it is understood was originally rented-out by Canal & River Trust, is situated on the junction of the Grand Union Canal and Wendover Arm is being offered for sale at £900,000, Howard Clarke tells us.

Total refurbishment

It stands just back from the top lock of the Marsworth Flight at Bulbourne and is Grade II listed and has undergone total refurbishment and now combines all modern amenities.

It is the latest of the many original waterways properties to be sold-off to raise 'instant' cash.

Featered in film

Keith Gudgin tells us that the toll house was heavily featured in the 1964 film 'The Bargee' starring Julia Foster, Harry H. Corbett, Eric Sykes and Ronnie Barker among others. One of the few  feature films about the canals.
