Early C19, designed by Thomas Telford. After the Act of Union in 1801 an improved road system was required to link London with Dublin. In 1815 Thomas Telford was appointed to survey the route between London and Holyhead. The road was completed in 1832. The milestone was probably erected following the completion of the Menai Suspension Bridge in 1826.
