Milestone, Milner Lane, Scarcroft
Milestone, Milner Lane, Scarcroft
This stone is Grade II listed, and is on an old route from Leeds to Wetherby, used before the present A58 road was constructed as a turnpike road. On this side the Inscription is 'Wetherby 4 Miles, unfortunately not clear in my photograph. On the other side the inscription is 'Leeds 5 Miles'. The '5' appears to have been recut, and is not correct. This is discussed in LinkExternal link . It is not shown on the 1850 six-inch map, although a bench mark is shown here. The 1893 1:2500 map shows 'G.P.' and also the bench mark, which was no doubt on the stone although it does not seems to be visible now. Modern maps show it as a milestone, 'MS'.
