Lledfair Tollhouse, Machynlleth
Lledfair Tollhouse, Machynlleth
Now a private residence, the former tollhouse is alongside what is now the A487.
Various tolls for passing through the town by road were formerly levied by
the Lord of the Manor and collected at this and several other tollhouses in Machynlleth.

The Coflein website records that Machynlleth's turnpike gates and the need for the toll houses disappeared on May 12th 1882, when a local Highway Board became responsible for road maintenance and improvement. On March 28th 1885, a sum of 100 was collected by subscription by the townsfolk to be paid to the Lord of the Manor to mark the end of toll collection.
