Toll Gates

And here’s a photo at least 150 years later of the toll house at Quinton. Significant differences as time has shifted from the painting; the shutters have gone from the lower windows, as has the board with toll charges, there’s no longer a lamp over the door and gates are no longer necessary. And of course the horse and carriage has given way to 4 wheeled vehicles.

Looks like someone took the corner too quickly and took chunk out of that wall to the right ! Viv.
