Hull and Hedon Turnpike Trust Road
Hull and Hedon Turnpike Trust Road
The road between Kingston upon Hull (North Bridge) and Hedon (Sacred Gate) became a toll-road by Act of Parliament, 1745. It was required, inter alia, that "Stones or posts to be erected at distances of one mile each from the other in order to mark or denote the distances of any one town or place." Six of the seven mileposts are extant, including the mounting block style milepost in Soutter Gate, Hedon. The inscription, in two lines, is clearly legible: From Hull VIII Miles
