Must invite my chum Reg Davis, and his wife round for a sherry and cake, for a chinwag about one of our restored milestones appearing on the front cover of the Milestone Society journal.
I’m a member of the Milestone Society, although Reg isn’t. The Society’s journal is its Milestones & Waymarkers, published annually in the autumn. Well, Volume Ten of the journal arrived in today’s post. It’s 76 pages, packed full of articles on milestone conservation and history.
A Camberley milestone, in the pavement alongside Martins VW Showroom, appears on the front cover of the journal. Our milestone repair efforts also makes it to an article about our work on page 73 of the journal, following an article on the previous page about the ceremony to unveil the replica milestone on the A30 at the entrance to Camberley Glass. Two pages on Surrey Heath, and the front cover too – success, eh.
PS. No more about milestones for a while, don’t want to bore.
