SX 55 SE YEALMPTON YEALM BRIDGE 4/255 Yealm Bridge Toll-Hut

II

Toll-keeper's shelter. Circa later C18 or early C19. Small stone rubble hut, square on plan with very steeply pitched stone corbelled roof with gable to front. Arched entrance at front. Small square look-out opening on west side. Circular interior with small square niche (or blocked opening) on east side. Completely overgrown with ivy at time of survey 1983/4. Note: This toll-hut is on the Plympton to Modbury section of the Modbury Trust turnpike (Turnpike Act of 1759). It may have been built then or soon after 1759 and therefore the original toll-house before the Yealm Bridge Toll-house qv was built in the early C19 to combat the evasion of tolls.
