SJ4065 : Distance marker on the city walls - 1 mile

taken 10 years ago, near to Handbridge, Cheshire, Great Britain

Distance marker on the city walls - 1 mile ½
Distance marker on the city walls - 1 mile
This stone indicates the distance of '1 Mile ' from the Eastgate. In the 18th century the city walls were substantially repaired and made into a promenade around the city, and there are many dates carved into the walls indicating when each section was rebuilt. Although this stone is not dated it seems likely that it was inserted around that time. So far I have found stones - ' Mile' near the Phoenix Tower SJ4066 : Distance marker on the city walls - ¼ Mile, ' Mile' near the Queen's School SJ4066 : Distance marker on the city walls - ¾ Mile, '1 Mile' above the Roodee SJ4065 : Distance marker on the city walls - 1 Mile, and this one between the Old Dee Bridge and the Recorder's Steps. The inscriptions are all worn and tend to be almost invisible without the light at the right angle.
