To Bristol

Redcliff Gate from Worle

Curiously, there appear to be no milestones at all between Congresbury (12 miles from Bristol) and St Georges (17 miles from Bristol), either on the ground or marked on any Ordnance Survey map, past or present. Indeed, the majority of the milestones on this route between Bristol and Congresbury are marked on the 1887 OS map with mileages to those two destinations, and make no mention of Worle at all.
