A former lock keeper's cottage on a picturesque canal is on the market for £1.2m.
The Grade II listed Georgian home is on the tow path in a scenic spot backing onto a park and has been beautifully converted inside.
Many of these kind of workers' cottages were torn down when canals stopped being used for commercial purposes, and of those that weren't often many were too small to be used as homes and the bigger ones were converted into pubs.
This 19th century two-bedroom property is on Regent's Canal in Bethnal Green, East London, and is on the market with Riverhomes.
