Milestone (WHR.H2), Woodhead Road, Almondbury

A lost milestone on the Woodhead Road.

The stone is one of several that were placed every half mile on the road by the 1890s, showing the distance to and from Huddersfield. The milestone at this location reads, "TO/FROM HUDDERSFIELD 2 MILES". The others are at 2½ miles and 3 miles.


The approximate former location is given below, although it is not clear which side of the road it once stood on:
