SD8005 : Whitefield, milestone

taken 9 years ago, near to Whitefield, Bury, Great Britain

Whitefield, milestone
Whitefield, milestone
Unusual terracotta milestone attached to the old Red King pub, at the junction of Bury New Road & Moss Lane. Legend reads WHITEFIELD//To/RADCLIFFE/BRIDGE./1 MILE/&/1100 YARDS/(arrow)//To/MANCHESTER/TOWN HALL./5 MILES/&/500 YARDS/(arrow)//To BURY 31/2 MILES. Presumably built with the pub, perhaps architect's whimsy.
