Milestone SW of Bellasize Farm (NGR SX
1371165156)

GV II
Milestone of c.1834. Triangular in plan with a flat top slightly sloping towards the front. The incised lettering is in Roman capitals with Arabic numerals and painted black. The inscription is to two dressed faces and reads 'L/71/2' and 'B/5'. The milestone is painted white although this is discoloured and partly worn away.

HISTORY: The Bodmin Turnpike Trust was set up by an Act of Parliament in 1769 and the route was from Bodmin to Liskeard. In November 1834 plans were published for a new route along the Glynn valley and nine milestones were erected along this route. Eight of these nine milestones survive, of which this is one.
