Stoke's Croft from Old Passage
Mile 1

From Mile 5 to Mile 2, this route uses the milestones from the Top of Park Street from Pilning route.


Milestone 1 on the route to Bristol from Old PassageNational Grid Reference: 357875, 174925

Location: Redland Road, Redland, built into a wall just south of the junction with Woodstock Road.

Date recorded: Sunday, 12 October 2008

Type of milestone: Iron Plate on Stone

Notes: According to an early Ordnance Survey map, this milestone was eleven miles from Aust (the location of the Old Passage Ferry), which presumably explains the "XI" in the inscription. It's possible that the stone itself is inscribed below the iron plate, but this is now buried below the pavement.
