Many of the areas roads were built in the 19th century under the auspices of the Dean Forest Turnpike Trust, who established turnpike houses and gates at various points to collect the tolls.
 
Coleford, being at the centre of a hub of radiating routes, had several at Poolway, Coalway Lane End, Whitechff, Scatterford, Crossways, Sling, Staunton and Berry Hill.They were abolished on 31 December 1888 and the newly formed local council took over responsibility for the roads. This photograph of Whitecliff Toll House was taken on that final day.
