Milestone, Penmaenmawr
This old milestone is situated at the entrance to the small car park at the rear of the Mountain View Hotel, on what was the original A55 road before the village was by-passed and the route of the A55 was changed. There is an old 1GL Ordnance Survey benchmark on the milestone which was used during the Ordnance Survey's First Primary Levelling on the line between Warrington and Pembroke Docks, between September 1851 and July 1852. This was mark No. 249 along this levelling line and was 113.0960ft above the Liverpool datum.
