Milestone on old turnpike, Houndkirk Road
Milestone on old turnpike, Houndkirk Road
It's thought this stone was used for target practice by troops practising for D Day, probably not bored men at the nearby wartime observation point where watch was kept for miles around. (Views on a clear day may stretch to York Minster, the Humber Bridge and Lincoln Cathedral.) For over 60 years only the bottom part remained, but in 2013 the top was recovered from a nearby garden and replaced.
