7/32 Milestone approx.
- 210 metres to

Crosses Inn

- II

Milestone. Late c18 with early C19 alterations. Red sandstone with
segmental-headed cast-iron plates. Triangular section on square base.
Each plate with superscribed serif lettering: "TO/CHESTER/33/MILES" (left-
hand side) and "TO/NEWPORT/7 MILES" (right-hand side). Rectangular plate
on base obscured by earth at time of survey (March 1986) but is probably
lettered "MILLGREEN", the name of the hamlet. The cast plates are probably
early C19 additions as earlier inscriptions are just visible in the stone
behind them. The Four Crosses Inn is not included on this list.
