Description:Marine Drive - Douglas Head Toll Gate & Half Bridge

The imposing entrance Toll Gate built on Douglas Head to collect tolls from pedestrians using the Marine Drive when it functioned as a Tramway / Footpath. There was a toll house adjoining the gatehouse on the ledge overlooking the sea. This was demolished many years ago. The Half Bridge is also visible. In recent years traffic has been restricted to the landward side of the bridge.
