In 1858 Duleep Singh leased nearby Mulgrave Castle from Lord Normanby. He exercised his elephants on the beach at Sandsend but eventually decided to build a road for them, the first road between Whitby and Sandsend. He also constructed a toll house in order to collect a small charge from others wishing to use this road. The toll house still stands and is today used as holiday accommodation. The extension looks to be of a later date.
