Working Men's Club in the High Street

The Working Men’s Club is named as The Institute here, and I have also seen it referred to as simply the Clubhouse. The lantern over the door had three words inscribed on it, but I can only read one of them being “Club”.
The old toll house had a benchmark on the wall variously placed at the southeast or the southwest corner of the building depending on which map you were looking at. I assume that this was not transferred to the new building. The height above sea level at that point was 503.6 feet.
The third window from the left was made into a doorway when the building was converted to two dwellings.

Having moved into Tollgate Cottage in March 2018 I can confirm that the benchmark is still there on the SW corner of the building.
