SE50SW HIGH MELTON DONCASTER ROAD (south side)
7/92 Milestone against roadside wall immediately to north of Leylands Farm Cottages II
Milestone. Probably late c18. Limestone. Round-headed slab now partly buried within roadside bank. Upper part of inscription mostly weathered away, lower part well preserved beneath soil level. Reads:
W----------- / Hous- / IX / Miles
Most probably indicates the distance to Wentworth House. Several such mileposts are shown on early Ordnance Survey maps but few appear to survive in situ.
