Mervin Benford. A5, 48pp. Erected to inform travellers how far they have come and how far they still have to go, milestones are a relic of a time when life moved more slowly. Their function has long since been superseded by new-style road signs, and now milestones are largely neglected. Well illustrated with many photographs of milestones of all shapes and sizes and there is a Gazetteer at the back of the book listing places where milestones can be found, in England, Scotland and Wales.
