NS9876 : Milestone beside Union Canal

taken 8 years ago, near to Linlithgow Bridge, West Lothian, Great Britain

Milestone beside Union Canal
Milestone beside Union Canal
This appears to be a modern replacement for one of the milestones originally placed along the Union Canal to mark the distances to Port Downie, at the Falkirk end of the canal, and Port Hopetoun, at the Edinburgh end. This stone is 8 1/2 miles from Falkirk and 24 from Edinburgh. One of the original stones still stands a mile to the west and is illustrated here: NS9675 : Inscribed stone and milestone beside Union Canal
