Miles to go?

by: Will F.

The cry for help went up from the Wallbridge visitor centre, “our milestone is a bit unstable”. 
The National Waterways Museum at Gloucester has kindly leant us a replica stone milepost with an original mile plate from Bakers Mill, Frampton Mansell. Trouble was the uneaven bottom meant the whole assembly was liable to topple over. 

Chippies to the rescue,  Ray made a new base from a repurposed oak work top we had at Weston Depot and the resulting stand provided a fitting support. Now where is that tin of paint we had to pick out the lettering....?
