For a wider view see SH4437 : Milestone beside the A497 road. On the 1956 1:25000 map, the OS shows it as having distances to Pwllheli (5 miles) and Tremadoc (8 miles). The inscription is now somewhat difficult to read but it also shows Criccieth at 3 miles.

The fact that it shows Tremadoc (Tremadog) rather than Porthmadog suggests that the stone pre-dates the rise of the latter as a slate port in the early 19th C.
