Nether Gate from Chipping Sodbury
Mile 4


Milestone 4 on the route to Bristol from Chipping SodburyNational Grid Reference: 364825, 176550

Location: A432 Downend Road, Downend, built into a garden wall at the end of Dial Lane, opposite the junction with Christchurch Avenue.

Date recorded: Thursday, 05 June 2008

Type of milestone: Wooden Plate on Stone

Notes: I first recorded this milestone on 8th August 2007 as "Iron Plate (Missing) on Stone". However, sometime between 21st May and 4th June 2008 this facsimile wooden plate was fitted, probably by the new owners of the house whose garden wall the stone is built into. It's very reassuring to see that they did their research.
