Chain Toll Point, Dunford Road, Wooldale

The Chain Toll Point on the Dunford District Turnpike road (now Dunford Road) is marked on the 1854 O.S. map.

This appears to have consisted of a metal chain stretched across the road as a barrier on the northern side of the road junction. Tolls may have been collected at the nearby Rising Sun Inn.

The Catch Bar Farm adjoining the toll point location was built after the 1854 map was surveyed.
