823/0/10098 Milestone at SO749782
23-AUG-07

GV II
Milestone. Mid to Late C18.

DESCRIPTION: Sandstone. A curved head with a white cast iron plaque attached with two iron nails, with raised edging and lettering painted black. The inscription reads "TO/BEWDLEY/3 MILES".

HISTORY: This milestone forms part of the Dog Lane District of the Bewdley Turnpike Trust established under the First Act 1753.

SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: Milestones survive in large numbers as important indicators of road use and to merit listing they must survive in their original location and be largely intact. This is a good example of a mid C18 milestone on the Bewdley Turnpike Trust which survives in its original location and retains its original cast iron plaque.
