5/11 Milestone in Hamels Park (600m to W of lodges) -

- II

Milestone. Possibly late C17. Portland stone. A broad stone pillar about one and a half metres high like a thick gravestone with a rounded top and chamfered arises. Inscribed in large well cut letters, on the E face 'XXVIII/Miles From/Shore Ditch/Church/London': on W face & XXIII/Miles 3/4 from/Cambridge'. Possibly the oldest milestone in the county, and probably moved to its present position by Wm Freeman of Hamels c1745 when the Wadesmill Turnpike Trust did improvements at the 28th milestone for which he gave land. (Branch Johnson (1970) 111, illus. 108).
