North Stainley toll booth

October 12, 2013

On the Ripon to Masham turnpike?

Driving in North Yorkshire the other day I came across this building opposite the Stavely Arms on the north bound carriageway of the A6108.

It has no label, plaque or any other identifier.  The door and window glass are missing, but the roof is keeping out the rain. I guess it was once a toll booth, and therefore that the A6108 between Ripon and Masham was once a turnpike. But neither are listed here.  Odd. What is it?
