Completed in 1922, the year that the BBC was formed and Gandhi was imprisoned, No. 82 Britford Lane has seen many changes and advances over the years and yet retains much of its original charm. The property was built by J W Dolman, an established local builder for his own occupation. The property still retains many of the interesting and high quality features incorporated by the builder and has seen only four owners since its conception. This is testament to the very well proportioned rooms, high ceilings, delightful views and general good atmosphere within.

Britford Lane is a no through road and is a popular residential location. It is less than a mile from the centre of the City with its excellent range of shopping, educational, cultural and leisure facilities and the main line station to London Waterloo (c.90 minutes). From the property there are a range of local walks across meadows and beyond, providing the best of rural/city living. The lane runs alongside the playing fields of Bishop Wordsworth Grammar School and therefore the outlook is very unspoilt

The house is approached via a path which leads through the front garden to the sheltered, front door (with original stained glass work and handle), this opens into the:-
