Notes about this historic site

1 Adjacent to the Toll House Bridge on the Warwick and Napton Canal the OS map for 1889 shows a toll house, apparently serving the canal, not the road. This building is now a private dwelling called “Bascote Toll House”. It is a simple red-brick, two storey cottage with a slate roof. Adjacent to it is an old winding hole.
