Redcliff Gate from Worle
Mile 3

Curiously, there appear to be no milestones at all between Congresbury (12 miles from Bristol) and St Georges (17 miles from Bristol), either on the ground or marked on any Ordnance Survey map, past or present. Indeed, the majority of the milestones on this route between Bristol and Congresbury are marked on the 1887 OS map with mileages to those two destinations, and make no mention of Worle at all.


Milestone 3 on the route to Bristol from WorleNational Grid Reference: 354725, 170500

Location: Long Ashton Road, Long Ashton, just west of the junction with Theynes Croft.

Date recorded: Thursday, 07 February 2008

Type of milestone: Iron Plate on Stone

Notes: The iron plate is pristine, and is therefore probably a replacement. Its stone is built into the wall.
