Milestone in the wall on Abbey Lane

Recommended Posts

Part of a garden wall on Abbey Lane. An old spelling?

Beauchiefe/Beauchieff. Looks old.

Parish boundary marker with 'Norton' rather than milestone I would suggest.

Fair point - it does look like the iron versions on Division St and near Sheffield University.
