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.

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

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.
