Geocache Description:

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. This one is a bit different to some of the others in that it also has the distance to Attleborough (written as 'Attleboro 6') on it, possibly reflecting the initial turnpike which ran from Wymondham to Attleborough. If possible I will try and place caches near as many of these milestones as possible, 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 near but not on the milestone as it's in a pretty exposed and muggle rich place! You can park on the road side just further north along Norwich Road, or in one of the town centre car-parks (some have a 1 hour free parking system).
