Hulverstone tollhouse

I have completed the individual page for the Hulverston tollhouse.

I managed to find a site about the history of the local area and linked it from the page.

The Newport tollhouse is next

Isle of Wight tollhouse page

I have made the county page for the Isle of Wight at my site, here. One of the tollhouses is a bit speculative as it is a bit modern but looks like it might be the place you are meant to pay for the chain ferry between the Coweses.

Individual pages for each tollhouse coming soon.

Collecting Isle of Wight tollhouses

Location: 4 Highwood Ln, Rookley, Ventnor, Isle of Wight PO38 3NN, UK
We spent the weekend on the Isle of Wight, mostly being wet and cold but also collecting as many of the island's tollhouses as we could find.

The map below shows what we managed to do.

Green dotted pins are tollhouses in the national database that we managed to photograph. The undotted green pin is a building that I believe is a toll house and photographed, but it is not in the national database. The red pin is a possible tollhouse, not in the database, but we didn't manage to stop and photograph it (streetview can be used to see it). The yellow pins are the two tollhouses we didn't manage to get to. The Yarmouth one I am not sure which building at the junction is the tollhouse, the St Lawrence one we just didn't manage to get to.

All the photos will be posted online over the next few days.
