The Round House, Stanton Drew
|Location||Stanton Drew, Somerset, England|
|Designated||4 December 1986|
It was built around 1793 by the West Harptree Turnpike Trust and served as a toll house when turnpikes were in use. A pouch hung on a hook over the door was used by coach drivers to pay the toll.
In the 1850s it was home to the Burridge family who acted as the toll collectors until the Turnpike Trust was abolished in 1876. From 1896 to the 1940s was lived in by Frederick Rich. It was still occupied in 2012.
