SP3080 : The Toll Gate

taken 10 years ago, near to Allesley, Coventry, Great Britain

The Toll Gate
The Toll Gate
The 1930's Art Deco style public house on Holyhead Road is situated a few yards from the original location of the toll house and gate on the London to Holyhead turnpike. There was also a wooden tithe barn near here.

Update: A 1930's car park light, shown to good effect in SP3080 : At the Toll Gate, is visible on the pole to the right of the advertising sign. Sadly, it was no longer atop the pole when I went past on 9 Feb 2012.
