The metal part is said to be early 19C, and is Grade II listed. It has raised lettering "Brough 8 miles, Penrith 13 miles". However the stone on which it was fixed must have been earlier as it has the remains of 'Miles' carved on each face, the inscription above this having been removed when the stone was re-shaped.
