Guildhall from Great Badminton
Mile 14¼

Milestone 14.25 on the route to Bath from Great BadmintonNational Grid Reference: 380150, 182650

Location: The Limes, Great Badminton, built into a wall just south of the junction with High Street.

Date recorded: Saturday, 19 July 2008

Type of milestone: Iron Plate (Missing) on Stone

Notes: According to an early Ordnance Survey map, this milestone once gave the distances to Bristol (16¼ miles) and London (104 miles – presumably Hyde Park Corner). However, it isn't on any direct route between Bristol and London, so it's likely to have been intended more as a signpost, and perhaps also a status symbol for the Duke of Beaufort who lived in Badminton House nearby.
