Full Description

Milepost, A619, Baslow and Bubnell, an early 19th century structure. Cast-iron milepost bearing inscriptions in irregularly painted letters, possibly 18th century. It stands on the old Chesterfield to Buxton turnpike, and is undamaged and probably original. It comprises a circular cylinder above a circular post. The cylinder is 13" in diameter and, apart from the top 3" which form a continuous band, is divided into 3 equal segments. The two facing each direction along the road bear inscriptions, the third does not. The top band reads 'London 154'. One face reads 'Bakewell 4, Sheffield 14, Buxton 15, Manchester 35' and one reads 'Chesterfield 8'. (1-3) In May 1983 all faces had been painted out except 'London 154'.
