Milestone at junction
with Westbury Road
the description shall be amended as follows:
Milepost. c.1834. Cast iron classical style pillar with weathered and moulded
top, raised lettering reads BATH/14/WARMINSTER/3. Mid C18 stone milepost
(presumably 1751-2) retained at rear. This road from Warminster to Bath
originally turnpiked 1851-2 and consolidated by the Black Dog Trust in 1834 when
a new road was made from Woolverton to Bathampton when the old milestones were
replaced by these iron ones made by Carson and Miller, a Warminster firm of
ironfounders. William McAdam was engineer to the Trust. The post was moved to
its present position when the A36/A3098 junction was reconstructed.
