Restoration of local milestones

Terry Moore, one of our members,  has continued his excellent work restoring local milestones.

He has undergone a programme this year of restoring milestones on roads between CARLISLE, WIGTON, COCKERMOUTH and ALLONBY. Parishes have authorised and donated funds to clean, restore and paint as before in other parishes.

He has restored 19 of which 12 are grade II listed. He has requested parish councils to consider applying for a listed status to English Heritage for those that are not listed in the Milestone Society records.
