SX 55 SE YEALMPTON YEALM BRIDGE
16/1/81 Yealm Bridge Toll House
Toll house. Circa early C19. Stone rubble. Slate hipped roof. Rectangular on plan
with polygonal end to road. Two storeys. Three windows to road. Gothick
two-centred arch windows with casements. First floor right and left blind. Central
pointed arch doorway with plank double doors. Similar doorway on west side with
pointed arch window above. Rendered chimney stack on east side.
This toll house is on the Plympton to Modbury section of the Modbury Trust turnpike
(Turnpike Act of 1759). The Yealm Bridge Toll-hut q.v. may be the original and this
toll-house an early C19 replacement, or the toll-hut may have been built after this
toll-house to combat the evasion of tolls.
