Slowing for Lower Swainswick
The old Gloucester Road indeed once used to be the main road to the north from Bath. Today it has been largely superseded by the newer dual carriageway not far from here. This has allowed the old tollhouse, with its octagonal profile, to enjoy a distinctly quieter life. See ST7667 : Benchmark on the old Tollhouse for a benchmark on it.
