History

Milestone. Later C18.

Exterior

Tapered limestone pillar with gabled top, incised lettering crudely overpainted, reading "Miles PooL 5/Oswestry 10". One of a series of mile markers probably erected after the first Montgomeryshire Turnpike Act, 29 Geo II. of 1756 for the road from Pool to Wrexham.

Reasons for Listing

This milestone, with others along A483 and B4392, are significant historical survivals from the century of road construction and maintenance in Mid Wales after c.1750.
