SO2956 : Toll House, Kington

Toll House, Kington
Toll House, Kington
"The Old Toll House", on the corner of Headbrook, Bridge Street and Townsend. Listed in 1976 but the restoration looks much newer (pre 2002 at least). A local reported that it was a ruin in the late 1950s/early 60s because he recalled playing in it. Looking closely at the chimney stack with traces of white paint, that must be original. Erected by the Kington Turnpike Trust in the 19ᵗʰ C. More local toll houses see Link
