Word of the Day: Chiminage

I saw this used in a forum thread and had to look it up. It's totally getting added to 'words to look for reasons to use'.

Chiminage

\Chim"i*nage\, n. [OF. cheminage, fr. chemin way, road.] (Old Law) A toll for passage through a forest. [Obs.] --Cowell.

Is it the actual toll paid (like a token) or the place of paying the toll?

I think it's the toll itself
