Farleigh tollhouse
Farleigh tollhouse
This charmingly rustic cottage stands on the junction of the main A366 Trowbridge road and the Tellisford road. Its location close to Farleigh Hungerford castle doesn't seem immediately important but it is in fact an old toll house that took road-users' fees for using the improved network in the nineteenth century. It is named 'Turnpike Cottage', but does not appear to be occupied today.
