Rugby, Ashlawn Road Milestone

A familiar milestone type, of Warwickshire sandstone with evidence of fixing holes for a metal plate, now lost.

The plate was probably removed in 1940 during the programme to obliterate road signs ahead of the fear of invasion. It is believed that a great many of Warwickshire milestones and mileposts were removed or buried at this time, never to be replaced.
