Title:A386 Tavistock to Okehampton
Originator:Jenkinson, T.
Date:2005 - 2008
Summary:Milestone situated at junction of Old Exeter Road and Barley Market Street. On road against end of wall. Tall marker stone, 125cm high. In good condition. Dates from c1817. The route of the A386 was jointly managed by the Tavistock and Okehampton Turnpike Trusts, the changeover taking place near the Dartmoor Inn at Lydford. The Tavistock Trust opted for grandiose markers that showed distances as far afield as Truro on their faces. The Okehampton stones are generally in poor condition and several have now gone.
