Milestone at Suttle House – update.

Terry Moore reports that he successfully retrieved the lost milestone which was situated at the entrance to Suttle House on Wigton Road this week.  If it had been left amongst other sandstone blocks and debris on the site it could have been lost forever. The site owners have been very helpful in extracting it ready for removal. It is now safely under cover. Terry and Roger Higgins, Urban Design Officer at Carlisle City Council, are liaising with the new building construction company, BORDER-ESH GROUP, on a suitable relocation site, and it may be several months before it is returned.
Meanwhile Terry will clean, repair and paint it over the winter.
