10/323 Milestone at NGR 805
Milestone. Circa 1824. Granite monolith. Rounded heads to splayed front
and roughtly cut flat back set into bank.
The front is inscribed "To Dartmouth 6" on the right hand side and "To
Kingsbridge 8" on the left hand side (inscription below is obscured).
These directions are inscribed on the wrong sides of the stone, therefore
the stone must have been reset on the wrong side of the road.
The Dartmouth-Modbury Trust was initiated by the turnpike act of 1824.
