Oxford Milestones: Toll House at Folly Bridge

Toll house at Folly Bridge


The original toll gate on the Abingdon to Banbury turnpike was at the south end of the Abingdon Road.

Folly Bridge was rebuilt in 1825–7 and in 1844 the toll-gate was moved on to this bridge and the toll house built beside it. The house was designed by James Gardiner and cost £320 to build
