SU 9643 SW
(south east side)
Milepost opposite No 108

Mile post. Probably early C19. Monolithic white stone post, the lower part
triangular on plan with sloping top face below quadrant-sectioned piece above.
Much of the lettering illegible, but the side of the quadrant-sectioned piece
reads 'HYDE PARK CORNER', with '32' on the sloping top face and 'GODALMING' and
bench mark on right-hand side. The top of the mile post has been broken off.
This road was turnpiked in the C18; it fell into disuse in the late C18, after
which it was revived (J &mmw pers. comm.).
