Milestone: London 164 miles

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

There are remnants of the 1759 Macclesfield to Buxton turnpike left after the making of the new turnpike in 1821. Some sections formed part of the modern road, some became minor roads, and some have returned to nature. Here an old milestone to London looks rather out of place on its own on the moorland.
