The one furlong post, Chepstow Racecourse
The one furlong post, Chepstow Racecourse
Looking north past a post showing the number one. This is the one furlong marker, placed exactly 220 yards from the start point. A furlong (an eighth of a mile) is now little use as a measurement, except in horse racing.
