Guildhall from Chippenham
Mile 2


Milestone 2 on the route to Bath from ChippenhamNational Grid Reference: 377225, 167075

Location: London Road West, Batheaston, built into a wall a short distance south-west of the Waggon & Horses pub and the junction with Toll Bridge Road (to Bathampton).

Date recorded: Wednesday, 09 September 2009

Type of milestone: Iron Plate on Stone

Notes: Despite appearances I'm pretty sure that this iron plate really does have a stone behind it, and that it's not just attached to the wall. The rest of the wall to either side of the plate (beyond the edges of the photograph) is of stone, and it's likely that the bricks you can see were only used to terminate the stonework on either side of the milestone.
