Milestone. Probably 1758, for the Carlisle-Newcastle Military Road. Sandstone,
cast-iron plates. Chamfered stone to give 2 faces in direction of traffic, one
face with cast plate TO CARLISLE 8 MILES, other face TO NEWCASTLE 48 MILES, both
in 4 lines. Whitewashed over and lettering picked out in black. This became
the Carlisle-Temon Turnpike in 1811. Each milestone is clearly drawn on
