I have been meaning to photograph this milestone for a while now. It is on the corner of Woodchurch Road and Gorsefield Road. It appears on many Maps and there is another one along the road. A lovely couple live at the house, they were saying that things like this need to be preserved. Apparantly it had been removed in the past and the owner was told he had to put it back.

When I was young the inscription was very legibly but now you can't read the milage any longer.

I have put up four pictures - two low-res, two hi-res. One of each pair is with flash (first) and the other without. Perhaps some photoshop wizards can get more out the inscription.

The Gorsefield Road milestone shows 'WOODSIDE FERRY 2' although the inscription is worn and the tarmac partly obscures the number.
The stone is similar to that at Greasby (now outside the library) which shows 'WOODSIDE FERRY 6'.
