Milestone Number 67

Listed Buildings in Ipswich: No 3 Milestone Number 67

This cast iron milestone sits by the curb a few yards away from the London Road entrance to Chantry Park. Dating from 1862 it replaced an earlier stone marker that was set in place by the Ipswich-Southtown and Bungay Turnpike Trust. The trust was established in 1785 and was responsible for road maintenance between Ipswich – then an up and coming town with a population approaching 11,000 – and Southtown (Great Yarmouth).
