(Formerly Listed as:

GV II

Toll house. 1826-30. Probably from Telford's office. Coursed
lias with limestone dressings, slate roof. A long,
cross-gabled plan, with the entrance at the upper, street
level; a C20 two-storey wing has been added at the river end,
and a flat-roofed single-storey extension across the back at
the lower level.
To the road the central flat octagonal bay is flanked by
2-light mullioned casements with 4-centred heads in dressed
stone set flush, with alternating quoins. A 6-panel door in
4-centred head has small square lights on the splayed returns.
At each side of the bay, and at gable ends are square
limestone buttresses with narrow panels to pointed heads,
carried up as pinnacles to a cross-gabled top. There is a
glacis-like weathered plinth, and the eaves has a continuous
course of crocket-like stone brackets, carried also into the
shallow central gable. The left return has a 2-light casement
at each level, and the right return a 2-light above a
flat-roofed extension.
The back is detailed as for the front, but with 2-light
casement at first floor in the slightly projecting gable. A
flat-roofed extension is carried across the ground floor, and
connects with the new 2-storey wing. Although considerably
extended, the toll house is not altered on its street front.
It faces the turnpike shelter (qv) on the opposite side of the
road.
