SSE hammerhead + SSE toll

It is shown as ‘T.P.’ on OS 1855 map, i.e. as a toll. The name probably refers to the shape of the T-junction at which it stands, where the road from Springfield meets the main road from Auchtermuchty to Cupar. Today the name refers simply to that T-junction, the toll having long since disappeared.[321]
