Old Milestone, A44, West of Knightwick Bridge, parish of Knightwick
The milestone is located on the south side of the road, set well back. Carved stone post, erected by the Worcester turnpike trust in the 19th century.

Inscription reads:- TO / WORCESTER / 8 MILES / LONDON 120

The distance to Worcester has been measured to the old city boundary because the distance to Worcester Cross, the centre of Worcester, is actually 9 miles. Later generation milestones on this route used Worcester Cross as the datum.
