] Also, if you're doing research on the costs of travel, there were numerous tolls to pay at turnpikes and bridges. I know that at one time parishes were responsible for maintaining their own roads, but I do not know if the parish collected the tolls, though I THINK in some cases roads were acutally built and maintained by private companies, but again I don't have any specific information.

Yes, I've just got a book on this very subject, on which I was trying to write a short review. As usual, the real world is gettting in the way......give me a few days, will you?
