History

Mid C18 milestone, one of 7 along the road between Barmouth and Harlech. This series of stones predate the resolution to convert the principal tracks of the county into turnpikes at a county meeting in Dolgellau in 1775, and it is thought that this stretch of road was constructed and maintained by the landlords of the estates through which it passed.

Exterior

Broad, irregularly shaped milestone bearing the inscription: I / HARLECH / IV / M / 1765.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good mid C18 dated milestone.
