Triangular milestone, probably late 18th century, with damaged lettering. Sited on the 1758 to 1759 turnpike. Dimensions: Height: 1.3m (4ft.). (1) Stone slab milestone, damaged around the top. The lettering is almost indecipherable on the western side and gone totally on the eastern side. The stone is beginning to crumble, and many of the letters are worn. (2). In March 2004 the stone was described as broken at the base, so that visible height was only 9 inches. Width was 9 inches maximum, and depth 17½ inches. The milestone was originally wedge-shaped.
