Toll post cap
Toll post cap
This is the top of what was an old toll road gatepost. It used to serve the Stanton Drew road, but was taken after the trusts were dissolved in the nineteenth century and into the custody of the (now-submerged) Whitehall Farm. After the latter was abandoned to the rising waters, these posts have been put on display on the approach road to Woodford Lodge - the visitor centre for anglers and the public. This road itself does not appear to have been on the toll road, buts once held a straighter course to the farm.

Peering through the lichen, the inscription appears to read:

John Weeks maker, Chew Stoke, 1852
