Burton Corner Toll Bar

The scene below shows the Toll Bar on the Wainfleet Road which was pulled down in about 1875. The building on the left is the toll-keeper’s house which stood at the junction of Sibsey Road and Wainfleet Road, the gates barring the way to Wainfleet.
In the background can be seen the greenhouses attached to Burton Hall.
There was a similar toll bar on Sleaford Road at Donnison’s Corner.
