About Milestones and Waymarkers

We use the term waymarker to cover a wide variety of different stones, posts,, plates and signs generally that tell the traveller where he or she is, or is going to, or which direction to follow when a choice of routes presents itself.
The articles that follow on this and successive pages are a random selection, but if you want something more specific, click on the links here or under Categories at the bottom of the page.
