Turnpike and Council roads of Southern Exmoor
Former tollhouse at Exebridge
After centuries of coping with poor roads, southern Exmoor shared in the modest improvements brought about by the turnpike trusts in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The coming of motorised transport forced local councils to improve Exmoor's roads in the 20th century.
A tollhouse survives at Exebridge on the Devon side of the bridge.
