Milestone Monday: another milestone on the North Downs Way

3 May

This photo raises several questions: Why have the metric distances been erased from this stone? Was it an act of vandalism? Why have I suddenly become obsessed with photographing milestones?

NDW Milestone

If you are look at the photo I posted last week you will see what I mean. Alongside the traditional imperial measurement (miles) should be the metric equivalent (kilometres). It is my guess that someone was so enraged by the inclusion of metric measurements that they took their chisel to the milestone.

Also if you compare the distances with last weeks photo you will see we have moved slightly closer to Dover, only 65 miles now compared to 77 miles last week. This stone is locate on top of the North Downs near Cotman’s Ash, Kent.
