Milestone NE of Fullaford Crossroads (NGR SX3730670033)

(Formerly listed at NGR SX3730270033)


Mid C19 milestone of granite; rectangular in plan with rounded top. The dressed south face has been carved at an angle to slope backwards. Incised lettering to south face: C. 1 / T. 8½. Below the lettering is an Ordnance Survey benchmark.

HISTORY: It is one of a series of milestones erected by the Callington Turnpike Trust on its route between Callington and Tavistock.

REASON FOR DESIGNATION DECISION: This milestone is listed at Grade II, for the following principal reasons:
* A legible example of a mid C19 milestone, showing the expansion of the road network and the impact of the 1773 general Turnpike Act, which made recording the mileage compulsory.
* Group value with other milestones erected on this route by the Callington Turnpike Trust.
