facing road (south) intact with Arabic numerals 35 over the letter L all in relief. West and east panels defaced and with recut inscriptions.
West face has Bodmin over 22M in simple incised lettering. Below this is

One of the original C18 Turnpike Road milestones but probably resited because mileage shown is not in correct sequence with mileage on stone to west.
