Tax haven toll bridge under the hammer

| 01/12/2009

(Oxford Mail): The Swinford toll bridge is expected to fetch up to £1.25m when it goes under the hammer next month. The privately-owned structure near Eynsham, which was built in 1767, will be auctioned by property consultants Allsop at the Park Lane Hotel, London, on December 3. It previously went on sale in May after its owner died, but a buyer could not be found. Potential bidders are being attracted by the bridge’s unique selling point – it enjoys tax-free status thanks to a legal loophole.
