SH6157 : Old milestone and bench mark at Gwastadnant - close up

taken 9 years ago, near to Nant Peris, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Old milestone and bench mark at Gwastadnant - close up
Old milestone and bench mark at Gwastadnant - close up
A cropped close up of the inscription on the old milestone at Gwastadnant. The stone reads:
C,CURIG
7 M, 5 1/2 F
GARNARVON
10 M.
There is a bench mark below the '10M'.
The photo was taken hastily when I realised that workmen were demolishing the roadside drystone wall in order to lay some pipes. However, when I passed by again in September 2009 the wall had been rebuilt and the milestone appeared to be in exactly the same place - a job that is a credit to the craftsmen involved. To see the stone in the old wall see - SH6157 : Old milestone and bench mark at Gwastadnant
