VoM2: Toll Booth

I finished my tour of Cornwall this morning by driving around to Lynton on the north coast of Devon, where my friend Betty had driven up to from her home in Dawlish on the south coast. We’ve joined forces for a few more days of hilarity together before I push on north to Wales.

Our afternoon exploration took all around Exmoor, on narrow, twisty little lanes over hills, through forests and across streams. At one point on a road called the Worthy Toll Road — through a private estate — we actually came across an ancient toll house with a gate blocking the road.

I thought you might find the setting and the tollbooth amusing, especially the instructions and coin receptacle!
