North Toll Gate and Cottage

The road through Crawley was turnpiked in 1770 and the toll gate and cottage probably dated from that time. The cottage stood on common land with a pond next to it for watering horses. The gate, which gave it's name to Northgate, spanned the turnpike road from where Brewers used to be. The toll gate was removed about 1870 and Mrs. Agate was it's last attendant.
