Milestone. Late C18 with early c19 alterations. Herringbone-tooled red
sandstone with cast-iron-plates. Attached segmental-headed cast-iron plates
with superscribed serif lettering: "TO/CHESTER/30/MILES" (left-hand side)
and "TO/NEWPORT/10 MILES" (right-hand side). Rectangular plate to base
superscribed: "STOKE HEATH". The cast plates are probably early C19 additions
as earlier inscriptions are just visible in the stone behind them. This
milestone appears to have been reconstructed at some time after accident damage
but is included as one of a series. Warran Farmhouse is not included on
this list.
