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.
