In 2004 the access road to former service family accommodation for the Central Ammunition Depot at Kineton was being overhauled. The work involved re-opening a disused stretch of the former Banbury to Warwick Turnpike, abandoned when a new bridge over the railway line servicing the Depot was built. During the work, a hitherto lost milestone was found, buried beside the old carriageway. It was re-erected by the new stretch of road and the discovery was featured in the Banbury Guardian. A day or two later it had gone, presumably stolen. If anyone reading this recognises the stone or has anything to add we would be very pleased to hear from you.
