Asylum Green Milestone, Southampton (The Avenue) 3D Model
An 18th-century milestone situated upon the grass of Asylum Green alongside The Avenue, which is one of Southampton’s oldest roads. The green was named after a former asylum that provided schooling for up to 400 military orphans and children of serving soldiers betweeen 1816–1840. The asylum was closed in 1840 and the site became the first base for the Ordnance Survey when it relocated to Southampton, Hampshire (UK). The west-facing side of the milestone features an older spelling for Winchester, ‘Winton’, while Southampton was abbreviated to ‘Southton’. Since the 18th century, milestones not only informed travellers about directions and distances, but also helped coaches keep on schedule and were used to calculate postal charges before the uniform postal rate was introduced in 1840. The east-facing side displays the dates 1746 to 1786.
