HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c543W
Mr. H. Lawson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if the ancient milestone that was removed in 1940 for reasons of security from the place where the old packhorse track from Horston and Ling Ghyll Bridge met the Roman road from Bainbridge on the buttress of Cam Fell near Settle has been replaced; or if he can state the whereabouts of this stone.

Mr. Noel-Baker

This milestone stood, not on a public highway, but on a moorland track. It was not removed by a highway authority, and no such authority is responsible for its replacement. I understand that a search by local shepherds has failed to reveal its present whereabouts, and I regret that I am unable to provide any clues.
