NZ 11 SW NEWSHAM A 66 (south side, off)
2/88 Guide Post opposite Smallways Inn II
Guide post. Dated 1774. Sandstone ashlar. Stone approximately 500 mm high, square in plan, the lower corners stop-chamfered. Each side is inscribed: the north with the date, "7 br 14 1774" (September 14th) and with a later benchmark; the east "Catte/rick/Road"; the south "Rich/mond/Road"; the west "Greata/bridge/Road". The stone has probably been moved from an island site in the middle of the road junction to its present position on the grass verge of the old road, which has been bypassed by a new stretch of road.
