A milestone, of c1835, in stone. The milestone is triangular in section with a sloping top, and stands approximately 0.75m high. The milestone is inscribed in a script with seriphs: left; L/XIX: right;B/3. The lettering is picked out in black paint.

The milestone stands on the A30 east of Helland Junction. The turnpike route was established following the 1769 Act of Parliament that set up the Bodmin Turnpike Trust.

In 1835 the route was improved to avoid the steep gradient out of Bodmin at Castle Street, and as a result a new three-mile marker stone was required on the re-aligned route. Following the practice of the times this replacement stone is triangular in section, rather than round headed. The earlier milestone on the old road survives in situ about half a mile away (listed Grade II). The replacement stone is marked on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1880.

The milestone 130m south-west of Council Barrow is designated at Grade II, for the following principal reasons:
* Intactness : an intact milestone dating from the early-C19, which remains in its original position
* Group Value: the milestone has group value with the other listed milestones along the turnpike route
