Mandurah Off The Beaten Path: 26 reviews and 27 photos


This style of cottage was mainly found on the turnpike roads in the 18th and 19th centuries. Their purpose was to collect tolls from passing traffic which was then used for maintenance and repair of the roads. This particular cottage was built in 1897 and is from Beeding in Sussex on the road through Old Shoreham to Sheep Fold. It was in use until 1885 when the road ceased from being a turnpike and was one of the last remaining Toll Cottages at that time.

Location : Abingdon Miniature Village
