ROAD IMPROVEMENTS AND TOLL GATES

In order to improve the roads, two Turnpike Trusts were formed in Ceredigion in 1770. They improved old roads and built new ones and charged each vehicle and animal for the use of the road to cover the cost of keeping it in good repair. Tolls were collected at Toll-Gates, set across many main roads. There were 22 in Ceredigion in 1843.
