Taking its toll Now a site for houses

 

 

THIS is Birchall Moss Tollhouse - in Audlem Road, Hatherton - which has been replaced by a modern house (built in 2006) standing behind the original building. When major roads were turnpiked, anyone travelling past a tollhouse had to pay to use the next section of road. It stopped being a tollhouse in1875, or thereabouts.

 

PREVIOUSLY occupied by the Johnson family, Stapeley Farm, Stapeley, stood on the corner of Audlem Road and Peter de Stapeleigh Way, near to the traffic lights. It is on the adjacent site to Stapeley Manor where houses and offices are due to be built. See also this page.

THIS wooden bungalow - 194 Audlem Road - was one of two owned by the same family before it was demolished in 2006 to be replaced by a two-storey house.The other bungalow, number 196, was demolished much earlier to become the site of a modern house. The two stood on the boundary between Nantwich and Stapeley.
