LONDON ROAD, Ashford
Milestone. Dated 1743. Stone about 600mm high by 400mm square with a slightly domed top. The incised inscription facing the road reads "XV miles from Hyde Park Corner 1743". It is the only remaining one of two milestones originally along London Road, Ashford. It is situated very close to its original position but was moved slightly northwards when London Road was widened in 1980. An intact early C18 milestone.
HISTORY: one of a sequence of similar milestones laid out along the London-Staines Road, one of the principal old roads leading into the capital and part of the Roman road to Silchester.
