Long Description:
This milestone is in a horrible state. It has a lump broken off and is rusting. It needs some wire brushing and paint at least!

I am a little puzzled about the "Reading 49" inscription. So what? London is closer and more significant. So is Luton and a myriad of other places. There must have been a reason to go to Reading from here back then. There isn't now!
Condition: Distressed

Material: Metal

Inscription:
Hatfield 1 Hertford 8 1/2 Ware 10 1/2 St Albans 4 Reading 49


Name of road: A 1057, St Albans Road, Hatfield
