Listing Text


SE 11 SW MILL BANK ROAD
(Meltham)
2/35
Old milestone at junction
with Holmfirth Road

II

Milestone. Probably mid C18. Small stone post inscribed on three sides.

Marsden To To
(?) miles Penistone Honley
(1) 1 Miles (2) ½ Miles
with pointing
gloved hand.

Presumably not in situ since the hand to Marsden points in the wrong
direction. The stone is very badly worn and the inscriptions are
almost indiscernible. The stone is on the old cross-valley route
linking the upper reaches of the Colne Valley to the upper reaches of
the Don Valley, via the Holme Valley.

W. B. Crump, Huddersfield Highways Down the Ages, 1949.
