Toll Cottage at Spittal-on-Rule
Toll Cottage at Spittal-on-Rule
This building on the northwest side of the B6358 near the entrance to Spittal-on-Rule was renovated in 2004. The property, also known as “The Lucky House,” is empty and the windows are bricked up and painted. The cottage was last used in 1880 to collect money from travellers and was lived in about 40 years ago. The tolls were used to maintain the road from the cottage to a ford over the River Teviot 300m to the northwest. Rule Valley Simulated Game and logo painted in white on the black porch is a fairly recent addition to the building.
