Nether Gate from Christian Malford
Mile 8

Milestone 8 on the route to Bristol from Christian MalfordNational Grid Reference: 370725, 176775

Location: Feltham Road, Pucklechurch, in front of a stone wall between the bridge over Feltham Brook and the entrance to Brooklyn Cottage.

Date recorded: Monday, 06 August 2007

Type of milestone: Iron Plate (Missing) on Stone

Notes: This stone is now almost entirely buried in the grass verge. According to a local gentleman the iron plate was removed during World War II, probably to provide metal for the war effort but with the additional advantage of confusing invading troops, and its inscription gave the distances to Bristol (8 miles) and Christian Malford in Wiltshire (17 miles).
