ST6972 : Milestone - Marshfield 6

taken 7 years ago, near to Bridge Yate, South Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Milestone - Marshfield 6
Milestone - Marshfield 6
A traditional (if somewhat gravestone-like) roadside marker, giving a distance of 6 miles to the nearby village. What it doesn't tell you is the fact that Marshfield is up the long, steep incline of Tog Hill, or that Bath is almost as close and is a far bigger town.
Intriguingly, there is a benchmark at the top - see ST6972 : Rivet benchmark atop a milestone for a closer look.
