1/91 Milestone at NGR ST 5098 2562
Milestone. Probably early C19. Ham stone pillar, cast iron plaque. Stone
about 375 mm wide x 150 mm thick and 700 mm high, with moulded top; plaque
about 370mm wide x 130 mm high with 150 mm diameter semi-circular top and
bottom, and reads: "6/LANGPORT/ILCHESTER/2 1/4". This road came under the Langport, Somerton and Castle Cary Trust and was turnpiked in 1792. The
stone appears also to mark the boundary between Kingsdon and Somerton
Parishes. (Bentley and Murless, Somerset Roads, 1985).
