Full description

Robinson, R., 1977-1979, South Brent Parish Checklist Worksheets, page 755-6 of 821 (Worksheet). SDV340722.

The ‘Toll House’ is stone built, with the single pitch slate roof at a much lower level than the buildings immediately north of it (number 12 Church Street). There is a small high window in the east face and a modern door with a large granite lintel. The wall this side is carried up to above the roof ? and is topped by a modern brick support for a bell. On the south face (against the street) is a casement window at ground level and a shuttered window above this. To the left of them is the Market Toll board removed from the Market House when this was pulled down (date uncertain).
The masonry of this interesting small building is almost entirely granite, some dressed blocks and some river-boulders, with a little slate.
On the Tithe Map the site seem to be represented by a single rectangle. The entry reads:
2974: ‘Dwelling house, owner Peter Ford’. Peter Ford is listed as ‘Mason’ in White’s Directory of 1850.
