Mytham Bridge tollgates
Mytham Bridge tollgates
Mytham bridge tollgates were part of the Sparrowpit gate road turnpike and were originally positioned on the east side of Mytham Bridge (about ¼ mile away on the A625) where there was also a smithy.
The Sparrowpit gate turnpike between Sheffield and Sparrowpit was established in 1758, completing the route between Sheffield and Manchester which had been started in 1724.
