Toll-bridge, Whitney on Wye
Despite being on a B-class road, this is still a wooden toll-bridge. If the attendant isn't around, put your money in the box. However since 1998 things have changed and there is now a barrier across the road, like the turnpikes of old. Since 2004 there has been a slot machine for use when the barrier is un-manned. The toll board is headed 'George III' and dated 1796, but the tariff has been updated to new pence and pedal cyclists included at a charge of 5p.
