Myself and chum Reg Davis have begun the second stage of our milestone cleaning and painting project.
Yesterday, before the rain halted our progress, we placed stones around the base of the milestone opposite the Hiller Garden Centre on the A30, and painted it with white masonry paint. Today we’ll visit the milestone to pick out the lettering in black masonry paint, and then move on to the next milestone on the A30.
In the photo below you can see Reg using a small paint brush to apply paint to the crevices on the milestone. We didn’t, in case you were thinking it, use a brush this small to paint the milestone. Hoping for no rain today.
