SD8005 : Whitefield, milestone

taken 10 years ago, near to Whitefield, Bury, Great Britain

Whitefield, milestone
Whitefield, milestone
Unusual terracotta milestone attached to the old Red King pub, at the junction of Bury New Road & Moss Lane. Legend reads WHITEFIELD//To/RADCLIFFE/BRIDGE./1 MILE/&/1100 YARDS/(arrow)//To/MANCHESTER/TOWN HALL./5 MILES/&/500 YARDS/(arrow)//To BURY 31/2 MILES. Presumably built with the pub, perhaps architect's whimsy.
