A fine two storey building on the north-west corner of the junction of Station and Seafield Road in Sidmouth. Built of cobblestones with brick edging, it clearly had its original door in the curved south-east angle, but this is now blocked up to form a window. Not shown as a tollhouse on any map but it was obviously so employed.
