Guildhall from Farrington Gurney
Mile 8


Milestone 8 on the route to Bath from Farrington GurneyNational Grid Reference: 365925, 160775

Location: A39, Farmborough, at the junction with the road to Hunstrete.

Date recorded: Sunday, 12 August 2007

Type of milestone: Iron Plate on Stone

Notes: A tricky one to photograph at the correct angle. Not only is the milestone leaning to the right, the road is also sloping down to the left. The sign in the background (which is in fact vertical) and the angle of the ground in front of the stone illustrate this. Consequently, the photograph I've published here is simply square-on to the milestone regardless of which way is really 'up'.
