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

It was originally a toll-road, Aitch, and vehicles had to pay for the bar to be lifted so they could go through. There is still a toll-bar on Warburton Bridge near Lymm. We go across often. It is 12p one way or 25p for a day-pass. x.
