Hello Aitch, like you I am from Ince and I have always taken it to refer to when there was a toll bar that you had to pay to go through at the crossroads of Belle Green Lane, Ince Green Lane and through Manchester Road.Long before our time.

The only Tollbar I can remember is the one in Hindley, and thank you for all the welcomes it's been a while
