Milestone on the B4039
Milestone on the B4039
This is all that remains of a milestone that used to have a plaque informing travellers that it is 10 miles to Chipping Sodbury. Not so these days, of course. It stands outside Castle Combe racing circuit but rarely sees a stage coach. On top is a rivet benchmark - see ST8577 : Rivet on top of the milestone.
