Former toll house. Early C19, extended mid C19. Red brick in part formerly
stuccoed and in part whitewashed. Plain-tile pyramidal roof with centre stack
to original part; plain-tile roof with brick end stack to extension. Octagonal
plan with extension to right. Single storey and basement. Tudor-Gothic style.
To left a Tudor-arched doorway and studded door with flat hood on brackets.
Most sides have 2-centre arched window openings in part with frames with simple
tracery lights. Plinth, band and crenellated parapet. Extension to right has
window opening and, on right end, a small 2-centre arched window,
part-projecting end stack, and small basement lean-to. To rear are doorways to
basements. A new turnpike road was opened in 1808, and the 1838 Broseley tithe
map shows an octagonal building at the site of the toll house; the tithe award
indicating that it was owned by Lord Forester, occupied by the Commissioners of
Road and relet to Edward Price.
