Notes about this historic site

1 W J Hitchcox says that the tollgate was situated on the turnpike about 25m E of the White Lion. In the 1920s the footings were discovered and again in 1971, but they are now mainly beneath the footpath. The tollgate had a small cottage near to the gate on the one side, and a small gate for foot passengers on the other.
