Toll Bar Cottage, Casterton

This former toll house is located on the A683 road, near the entrance to Casterton Golf Course, to the south-west of the village of Casterton. It was built in the mid to late 18th century, probably by the Sedbergh Turnpike Trust, which was established in 1762. The former toll house, now a residence, is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.

Note: one source indicates that it was built in connection with the turnpike road from Kendal to Kirkby Lonsdale[1], but it's location is more consistent with the Sedbergh to Greta Bridge turnpike road, rather than the Kendal-Kirkby Lonsdale-Settle turnpike road.
