The Pike House
Looking towards The Pike House from the road from Parkend, in the Forest of Dean.

The former toll house ((turn)pike house) probably dates from about 1828, the date of the construction of the road to Bream (on the left). The white sign pointing left shows Bream 1 St Briavels 5. The road on the right heads for Coleford.

The building ceased to function as a toll collecting house with the abolition of the Turnpike Trust in 1888.
