Former toll cottage, London Road
Former toll cottage, London Road
Built in 1830 for the keeper of the Harraby Toll Gate, on the Carlisle to Eamont Bridge turnpike road (for information on turnpikes see Wikipedia LinkExternal link ) .
The turnpike closed in 1883, when road maintenance became the responsibility of the local authority. The cottage was sold to the owner of nearby Chertsey House, to be used as a lodge.
Today it is a private residence.
