Statement of Interest

Originally associated and presumably contemporary with the nearby Union Suspension Bridge - see separate list entry. Now in separate ownership (1999). A modestly-detailed, early 19th century cottage, the core of which remains intact. Marked on the 1857 OS map as 'Union Bridge Toll'.
