The Old Toll House, The Square, Scout Road, Mytholmroyd
The Old Toll House, The Square, Scout Road, Mytholmroyd
An intriguing name, as I had no idea that this road (to Sowerby) had been turnpiked. It is not shown as such on the 1850 six-inch map, but that does show the name 'Bar House', although apparently referring to a building on the other side of the road. Possibly it was a very early toll road that was superseded when the present main road was constructed. The old map gives 'Square' as the name of the locality, rather than as a street name.
