A grade II listed,(and listing), milepost of the late C19. The post marks the route of the Wakefield and Aberford Turnpike road which was created 1788/9.
On the head it reads:- WAKEFIELD & ABERFORD ROAD WAKEFIELD
On the left side :- ABERFORD 12 MILES, OULTON 4 MILES.

In the West Riding area, in the late C19, the County Council replaced most of the turnpike milestones with cast-iron ones of triangular section on a stone post. Many were manufactured at Brayshaw and Booth’s foundry in Liversedge, and this milestone bears their details on the hip.
