"This road on account of its thoroughly picturesque position and the extensive and beautiful scenery it commands, as well as from the fact that it affords communication with the town at either extremity, will undoubtedly be the most favourite and frequented drive in the locality. It has been designated the South Road, whilst that on the Kewstoke side of the hill is called the Channel Road."

I compared a few maps through "Know Your Place" and you can see that no buildings were erected along that road until the early 1900s. However, at the toll gate to the east (in Kewstoke), opposite the New Castle Cafe that is there today, there was a Toll Lodge. This appears on the earlier maps - you can see it on Google Maps here
Thank you Richard, That's helpful - Now that I know the road - I know that Thomas BARRY was the Gate Keeper at the Kewstoke Lodge but am now trying to find any reference to a John HARRIS who might have ben based at the Weston end of the road about 1851.
