5/96 Milestone 140m north of
milespost at SJ 9991
Milestone: c1750. Triangular sectioned ashlar sandstone block with a
shaped top. North-west face reads To Macclesfield 6 miles and south
face reads To London 164 miles.
This stone is alongside a surviving stretch of the original turnpike
isolated in a loop of the new turnpike of 1821. This stone is
unerased probably because it did not advertise the shorter distance of
the old road to travellers on the new.
