The main entrance, hall and galleried landing form the original cartway
Close to the wood was Mockbeggar Farm, the cartway
to which passed through "a marshy valley, and here could be seen at times, one of England's old friends, the Jack o' Lantern, otherwise the Will o' the Wisp".
She is tikel of here tayl, talewys of tonge, As comyn as be cartway to knaues and to alle, To monekes, to alle men, 3e, musels in hegge; Lyggeth by here when hem lust lered and lewed.
These lines echo Langland's description of Lady Mede, who is as "as comyn as be cartway," as well as Guido delle Colonne's complaint that even after marriage a woman will not hold her imprint.
There are three types of highway (a strip of land over which there is a public right of way); a footpath where the public have a right of way on foot only; a bridleway or bridle road where there is a right of way on foot and on horseback, and a carriageway or cartway
, which allows vehicular traffic (once horse-drawn vehicles but now motorised), as well as on foot and horseback.
ATTRACTIONS After a walk up the old Cartway
into the High Town, rest in the gorgeous Castle Gardens.
At one time there was but a single road - aptly called Cartway
- that took wheeled vehicles from the high town on the ridge down to the low town and the bridge over the river.
And while planners agonise over the preservation of architectural character in countryside locations, nit-picking over old cartway
entrances and window styles for former barns, developers are creating their own versions - from scratch.
entrances have been preserved but tweaked for modern comfort with a mix of glazing and timber.
Selling points include lovely views over the Teme Valley and the imposing, original cartway
features to the front and back.
Balfour Burd & Benson in association with Lane Fox quote a guide price of pounds 75,000 for 4, Cartway
, Bridgnorth, a little, modernised cottage on an historic town site.
And despite knowing the businesses were insolvent Thompson, of The Cartway
, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, continued to pay himself a salary of up to pounds 95,245.
