History

Probably C18, representing the turnpiking of an ancient route from Caerphilly to Cardiff. Now incorporated in a snecked stone wall, so probably not in its original position.

Exterior

Limestone block, tapering out towards the top and roughly rectangular in plan. An inscription on the front face reads 'From / Cardiff / VII Mile'. Now incorporated in a garden wall of snecked stone as an end pier.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its historic interest as a feature of the former turnpike road.
