SE 11 SW MILL BANK ROAD (Meltham) 2/35 Old milestone at junction with Holmfirth Road

II

Milestone. Probably mid C18. Small stone post inscribed on three sides.

Marsden To To (?) miles Penistone Honley (1) 1 Miles (2) ½ Miles with pointing gloved hand.

Presumably not in situ since the hand to Marsden points in the wrong direction. The stone is very badly worn and the inscriptions are almost indiscernible. The stone is on the old cross-valley route linking the upper reaches of the Colne Valley to the upper reaches of the Don Valley, via the Holme Valley.
