GV II

Former toll house, now farmhouse. Early C19 extended later C19. Ham stone cut and squared; hipped Welsh slate roofs, with plain gable to rear extension; brick chimney stacks. Two storeys, 2-bay roadside elevation, of which bay 1 is a double chamfered projection. Pointed arched windows with 'Y'-traceried casements diamond leaded, with 3 windows to first floor in bay 1, and 2 on the chamfered faces ground floor: to left of upper bay 2 a segmental-arched recesss with sill, probably for the toll-charge board; to ground floor centre bay 1 signs of a blocked doorway with shallow-pitched roofed porch. South-west side elevation has signs of similar blocked doorway and a blocked window above. Rear extension of single bay having 6-pane sash windows, and to right a studded boarded C20 door set in late C19 open porch. North-east elevation has matching sash windows in the extension, and two lean-to buildings. Interior not seen. This section of the old London-Exeter Road was turnpiked by the Chard Trust in 1753, but was transferred to the smaller Crewkarne Trust in 1825: the road immediately north-east was diverted in 1831, and this toll house probably dates from this period (Bentley B.J and Murless J.B, Somerset Roads, SIAS, 1985).
