5/6 Turn Cottage
(Turnpike House on O.S. Map). Former Toll House. Early C19. Red brick, English bond; hipped double Roman clay tile
roof; brick chimney stacks. 'L'-plan; 2 storeys, 2 bays each face. Roadside chamfered projection is original toll
house; in each face chamfered pointed arched surrounds to 'Y'-traceried casements; in front face a matching doorway now
blocked with shaped casement window, with blind panels above and in full returns, band course between windows and
stopped arched label course to upper windows. Rear extension probably late C19/early C20, more sophisticated, but
matching, with pairs 4-pane sash windows to front. To rear this extension appears to embrace former lean-to, with, in
east elevation, a pointed casement below and plain sash window above. Interior not seen. This road taken into Langport,
Somerton and Castle Cary Trust in 1792, but turnpiked in 1828: a similar toll houuse formerly stood at Beer Cross, at
opposite end of Parish (VCR vol III, 1974).
