Summary : Nineteenth century toll road and modern toll house, Porlock
More information : A toll house at SS 8760 4670 is recorded in the Somerset SMR from documentary sources (1,2).

The toll houses were built in 1924 to collect tolls from users of the New Road or Toll Road, an alternative route from Porlock, avoiding Porlock Hill, constructed in 1840. This toll replaced a gate at the bottom of the road, close to the Ship Inn in Porlock. The cottages are called Toll Gate Cottages and the toll is still collected here (3).
