An 18th century milestone which spent nearly 70 years as a garden feature in Dore has been reinstated on Houndkirk Moor in the Peak District.

The stone was first removed from the old Houndkirk turnpike road in World War Two. It ended up in Dore as part of a rockery at a post-war home on Heather Lea Place.

Resident David Harrison took part in an open gardens event last year and an archaeology enthusiast spotted it and knew its base was still standing on the moor. It was replaced using stainless steel rods and resin to make it secure.
