This well positioned, double fronted traditional semi detached former lock-keeper's cottage is located within 15 minutes drive of Lichfield city centre and 35 minutes of Birmingham city centre. It is also located 8 minutes from the nearest junction of the M6 Toll road for Burntwood and Brownhills and also has easy access to the A5 trunk road.
A feature of the property's setting is the views to the adjoining countryside to the front and side aspects; viewing is highly recommended.
The cottage was built in 1810 and is one of the last two numbers in the BCN property register. It is situated next to Lock No.1 of the former Lichfield Canal which was closed by an Act of Parliament in 1954 and was filled in the 1960’s.
Future owners of the cottage may wish to consider working with the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Trust who have a long term desire to reopen the canal along its original route where possible.
