DaveRo BS: Roman Numerals-analogue decimal mantissa (22) RE: BS: Roman Numerals-analogue decimal mantissa 12 Jul 19

This milestone will have been made in the 18th Century when the turnpike to St Austell was built. I see that there are others of a similar pattern.

Maybe a local mason invented this notation. Maybe it was two and some lads walking back from the pub thought it should be three so started to increment it, before being interrupted.

You could ask the Milestone Society.
