Full Description

The Booth family were in evidence in the hamlet in the early and mid 19th century and were coal higglers. Toll keepers had the power to turn back loads which did not conform to the turnpike rules and a weigh machine was installed for this purpose. A turning area was also included. The Township Map of 1843 shows a detailed enlargement of Boothgate, which shows the turning area and weighing machine, just to the North of the houses. A wall up the side of Brick Kiln Close ends abrubtly at a hedge and marks the limit of the turning area. (1)
