Site of Toll Gate, Castle Road, Kenilworth
The possible site of a toll gate which was in use during the Imperial period where travellers paid the toll for using the toll road. It was situated on Castle Road, Kenilworth.
1 Virtually all the roads out of Kenilworth in the 19th century were turnpike roads: Drew seems to remember “a toll-gate type structure at the Brays end of the Tilt-yard, lower level ‘many years ago'”: he says this could be the toll-gate described in the 1920’s by a local man as “still used”.
2 However, all this is rather suspect and should be approached with care.
3 There is no sign of the building now, and the situation does seem a little odd to put a toll-point at!
