Grid Ref TL 2342 2926
Milestone. C18. For the Stevenage-Biggleswade Turnpike Trust (founded
1720). White freestone probably Portland stone. On roadside verge,
a milestone about 15 inches square and standing about 39 inches out of
the ground. The top cut as a blunt pyramid, with broad arrow cut in
rear facet of top to mark an ordnance Survey benchmark. On E face an
inscription in deeply cut C18 lettering '34/MILES/from/LONDON'. Marks
of weathered inscription at rear suggest stone reversed when inscription
required re-cutting. (Branch Johnson (1970)187).
