In Vyner Road North, stood a ‘toll bar cottage', mentioned in “Auld Lang Syne” 1935.

"The keeper's cottage stood to one's right and contained, as far as I can remember, only one living room
and a sort of cockloft above. It was lime washed, and stood flush against the roadway, while the long white
five-barred gate stretched across the whole road from the doorway. At one end of the cottage was a little
pond shaded by willows”.

The willows are still there with remnants of the pond, but did it look something like this?
