Thos. Hamilton, Inspector of Poor.
024.05 This is a toll gate on the Ayr and Edinburgh T.P.Road, at the west end of Stonehouse.
It is well known as the "West Bar"and it would be improper to dispense with the "Bar" in the name, as although it is known to be the turnpike gate in the west of the town. The word "bar" has become a name of as much importance as any in or about the village.
There is an "East Bar" or gate in the east of Stonehouse.
