The property is over 250 years old and was built at a time when using handmade bricks transported by canal was seen as prestigious. The name ‘Old Toll House’ is very useful for addressing and some of the utility room may have once been part of a toll house. The house featured in the Hebden Bridge Town Centre Trail booklet and was described there as The Brickhouse.
