Toll Gate House, Spaniards Road, Highgate NW3 - Camden

Late C18 toll house, marking the spot where the road entered the Bishop of London's estate. It stands at a traffic bottleneck on a busy road and has suffered impact damage from heavy vehicles. A bollard was erected in late 2008 to provide protection from traffic. Roof and guttering repair works have been undertaken and the property is now in good condition, but remains unoccupied.
