Early milestones

Early milestones

Milestones were erected in 1728 along the Fowlmere to Cambridge Turnpike Road. The first milestone from Cambridge (shown) is at the Stone Bridge (now the junction of Trumpington Road and Brooklands Avenue). The second milestone is on Trumpington High Street near Wingate Way. The third milestone is on Hauxton Road near the entrance to the Park & Ride site.

For a fuller account of this “Trinity Hall series” of milestones see this page.
