It’s rather unusual to see the toll island, and the left hand bank, clear of vegetation.  They are frequently covered with overgrown vegetation.

Bromford Junction is just visible in the background and toll islands were often placed next to junctions so boats joining or leaving the main waterway could have their draught measured to establish the weight of their cargo and the correct toll to be paid.
