Wharf Cottage, Bramley
Wharf Cottage, Bramley
Wharf Cottage was originally a toll office for the Wey & Arun Canal; the first tolls were collected there on 18th December 1815. The Stanton family was closely associated with the canal in Bramley throughout its active commercial life. James Stanton (senior) was the first superintendent of the canal.

James Stanton (junior), who also served as superintendent of the canal until 1857, had married the daughter of Charles Baverstock, lock-keeper at Rowner Lock (near Cranleigh).

The Wey and Arun canal finally closed in 1872. William Stanton James (junior's) son still lived at Wharf Cottage in 1871 having also worked as a lock-keeper, bargemaster and coal merchant from this address.
