This is apparently one of a line of 21 surviving milestones along the former Norwich to Thetford turnpike, created in its entirety in 1766 and lasting until 1870. More details on this milestone can be found on the Norfolk Heritage Explorer. If possible I will try and place caches near as many of these milestones as possible (this being the first), although as I know a few are beside the main A11 I may have to get inventive to make the caches accessible!
The cache is placed as close as I could get to the milestone, which unfortunately is on the opposite side of the road to the parking as the only other option requires you to be nine feet tall!
Congratulations to Gimmealook for FTF 34 minutes after publication! Given all you got up to in your log you had a very busy half an hour!!
A cache near a milestone. If you wish to set a milestone cache then please contact Marcusmaximi who is keeping track of the numbers. You may have to check on the 'magic' map to make sure that a particular milestone is not a scheduled ancient monument or somesuch.
