Location: Clifton Down, opposite the junction with Harley Place.

Date recorded: Tuesday, 05 May 2009

Type of milestone: Iron Plate on Stone

Notes: This one's got me stumped – the most direct route from here to Bristol is little more than ONE mile, and the only logical two-mile route I've found (via Bridge Valley Road) terminates in the middle of Hotwells. I have to wonder whether the good people of Clifton, who were well known for insisting they were entirely separate from dirty old Bristol, decided to erect this milestone simply to illustrate just how far away from Bristol they wanted to be.
