Published: 30 April 2019
The Milestone Society LinkExternal link - uses Geograph to host images collected of Milestones and similar wayside features across the British Isles.

Viewing Images


Can view the images on a map here:
LinkExternal link

Can also use the keywords box on the above map, to search and locate specific locations or markers. Add your keywords before the milestoneid word (which helps find all images in the collection)

Contributing Images


If you have your own images of milestones you welcome to submit them direct to Geograph. We welcome many photos per milestone.

Please consider marking the image with the 'official' Milestone Society Identifier. The Society has assigned unique ids to each known marker. This helps track image uploads on Geograph.

You may be able to find other images of the marker on Geograph, otherwise contact the Society for help identifying the ID.


Do this by using the Tags feature in the Geograph submission process. Eg if the id is YN YOMA14 then add the tag [milestoneid:YN YOMA14]. The milestoneid prefix, helps keep all the images together.


Imported Images


The process of importing the existing collection of images is still ongoing, so not all images are available yet on Geograph. And/or don't yet have the proper milestoneid tag.

Most of the imported images here currently here: LinkExternal link - but will find many uploaded directly by other contributors.
