Part of the Shire Album S. series
'Erected to inform travellers how far they have come and how far they still have to go, milestones are a relic of a time when life moved more slowly'.
This book tells the history of milestones, many of which are disappearing as new road signs are erected and old ones are being destroyed.
Benford looks at their historical importance, at the technology of road measurement and includes a gazetteer of examples and places to visit in the UK.
