5/85 Milestone to west
of the Stag Inn


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 4 MILES, other face TO NEWCASTLE 52 MILES, both
in 4 lines. Whitewashed over and lettering picked-out in black. In 1811 this
became the Carlisle-Temon Turnpike. Each milestone is clearly drawn on
Hodgskinson and Donald's map of Cumberland Westmorland, surveyed 1770.
