Toll House or Ice House?

Sun 17 Jun
Ashcombe Hollow, Lewes

The sign on the door says it's a Toll House, dating from 1820, but Jan thought she'd heard it was an Ice House. Maybe it was both?

Nearby the bee-orchids are going, going, gone.

  1. It's a Toll House dating from 1820 but also a bakery- the tollkeeper (or his wife) had the use of an oven inside, possibly to sell to customers of the Toll. I painted an image of the tollkeeper in 2011, commissioned by The Sussex Heritage Trust, in the blocked-in window you see in the photograph.
