Listing Text

The following shall be added:

1. (south east side)


12/1004 Milestone and Cover plate
45 m SW of Ivy Cottage

Milestone and cover plate. C18 and early C19. Limestone and cast-iron. Mile-
stone angled to the road so that the inscribed surfaces face N and W, the
inscriptions concealed by the cover plate, whose N vertical face is embossed
'Ingatestone 1', the W vertical face 'chelmsford 5' and on inclined surface
above 'To London 24 Margareting'. This design of cover plate was initiated by
James McAdam and used by the Essex Trust on this turnpike road in 1819, to avoid
the frequent cost of recutting inscriptions. Shown in Chapman and Andre's map
of 1777.
