Milestone. Probably 1758 for the Carlisle-Newcastle Military Road. Sandstone,
cast-iron plates. Chamfered stone to give 2 faces in direction of traffic, one
face with cast plate TO CARLISLE 12 MILES, other face TO NEWCASTLE 44 MILES,
both in 4 lines. Whitewashed over and lettering picked-out in black. This
became the Carlisle-Temon Turnpike in 1811. Each milestone is clearly drawn on
