SE 4055 5810 FLAXBY OLD YORK ROAD
Milepost. Early-mid C19. Cast iron and gritstone. Triangular section,
rounded top, approximately 1 metre high. Inscriptions: top - 'KNARESBOROUGH
AND GREEN HAMMERTON ROAD'. Left face - 'KNARESBOROUGH 4 MILES'. Right face
- 'GREEN HAMMERTON 4 MILES'. Two bolts through the top section secure the
cast-iron plate to a gritstone support. This stretch of the York-
Boroughbridge Road was built and made the responsibility of a turnpike trust
in 1752. It replaced a more meandering route via Ferrensby, Arkendale and
Whixley. There was a turnpike bar at Flaxby. There were further road
improvements throughout the Harrogate and Knaresborough area in the 1820's
and 30's. See V. Jennings, (Ed.) History of Harrogate and Knaresborough,
1970, pp. 234, 288.
