In the Area
This is a mile marker just south of Crow Hill which has had its face removed. It would have originally had a metal face bolted onto it denoting the distances.
It has a distinctive mark on it of a line with a V shape above it which is a datum mark which was used when surveying as it was a reference point at a known height.
