History

The present road between Beulah and Abergwesyn was built in the third quarter of the C19, largely at the instigation of Henry Thomas. The new road was laid out on a more favourable gradient than the earlier road shown on the 1841 Tithe map and was diverted away from Thomas' own house at Llwynmadoc. The milestones all date from the construction of the new road and are shown on the Ordnance Survey of 1888.

Exterior

A dressed milestone with a rounded top. The face is engraved: 'Llanwrtyd 4 3/4, Garth 3, Abergwesyn 5 1/2'.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for group value as one of a series of 4 mid C19 milestones marking the diversion of the local road by a prominent local landowner.
