MILESTONE near CAT & FIDDLE INN above BUXTON
This is an old gritstone milestone.
It is off the beaten track near the Cat & Fiddle Inn and is by the side of the old 1759 turnpike which ran from Buxton to Macclesfield before it was replaced in 1821 by the current A537 road.
It is marked on the OS as MS rather than the usual MP and is in better than usual condition as many are found in an eroded state but the lettering on this one is excellent.
The South East face is particularly clean and is carved - To Macclesfield 6 miles.
The North West face has a coating of lichen presumably because it is the shadier side and is carved - To London 164 miles.
