Full Description

Baslow toll house was demolished in 1872. (1) It stood on the east bank of the River Derwent and on the south side of the Old Bridge. (2) The tollhouse at Baslow was demolished over a century ago, but one of the windows has been built into a house in Calver; it is inscribed 'Ye Toll House Baslow, Dismantled 1872'. An early 19th century traveller remarked that the tollhouse was 'awkwardly situated at the foot of the bridge' - at its eastern end, almost opposite the watchman's shelter [HER 1343]. (3)
