HER Number:MDV16477
Name:Sticklepath Toll House, Barnstaple


The toll house, which is shown on the Tithe Map, was sold in 1879 when the Barnstaple Turnpike Trust closed down. It probably served as the first tollhouse on the turnpike running out of Barnstaple from the Long Bridge towards Hatherleigh. It is not shown on the first edition Ordnance Survey map and was probably demolished to make war for the railway.
