Property Details

Property Information:

The house is the first property of a row of three cottages. The house has private access with ample parking, a double garage and plenty of parking. The property has three well sized bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and two square reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor.

Local Information:

The property is located just next to the Swinford Toll Bridge. It is a privately owned toll bridge south of Eynsham, which crosses the River Thames just above Eynsham Lock. The bridge, constructed in local stone in the Georgian style, was opened in 1769. It replaced a pre-existing ferry and its construction was funded by the Earl of Abingdon. The bridge is governed by its own Act of Parliament. It allows the bridge owner to collect tolls and makes the building of bridges across the river illegal for three miles either way up or down stream from Swinford. By repute, the owners do not pay tax on the revenue from the tolls as a perquisite from King George III. It is one of the two remaining toll bridges which cross the Thames upstream from London, the other being Whitchurch Bridge.

Eynsham Information:
