Cartway was originally the only road between the riverside in Bridgnorth and the town centre. The street is picturesque with an attractive frontage of brick and colour-washed cottages stepping neatly down the hillside. Originally used by the bargees operating the Severn Trows on the river, it is believed that the street comprised mainly of ale houses and houses of ill repute – fortunately things have moved on!
The property is situated about halfway down Cartway on the Eastern frontage and has, at the rear, got spectacular views over the river. The cottage stands within the Conservation Area and is listed. The listing for Nos 54 to 57 Cartway describes the properties as "a simple range of C17 and later painted brick; 2 storeys; each has large window on ground floor originally designed for Hugenot weavers; 5 mullioned and transomed windows; 4 gabled dormers; tiles".
This delightful property is situated over 3 floors and has a wealth of charm and character throughout.
