“All the Books of Roads hitherto published differ in the Situation of Mile Stones, and, instead of being a Guide to the Traveller, serve only to confound him… It were to be wished, that the Commissioners of all the Turnpikes were obliged to continue their Measurement agreeable thereto in a regular Manner from London.”

The Traveller’s Pocket Book, or Ogilby and Morgan’s Book of the Roads

“On the site now occupied by the statue of King Charles I was erected the original Queen Eleanor’s cross, a replica of which stands in front of Charing Cross station. Mileages from London are measured from the site of the original cross.”

Plaque inscription, St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square

“The Roman Roads were all measured from London Stone, still extant in Cannon-Street… No defect in our improved modern Metropolis is more inconvenient than the want of such a Stone; the various Roads from London being now measured from Ten or Eleven different places, Two, Three, and even Four Miles distant from each other. The Catalogue is curious; Hyde Park Corner, and Whitechapel Church; the Surrey side of London Bridge, and of Westminster Bridge; Shoreditch Church, Tyburn Turnpike; Holborn Bars (long since removed); “The place where St. Giles’s Pound formerly stood;” “The place where Hick’s Hall formerly stood;” the Standard in Cornhill (of which no other tradition remains, its exact site being unknown); and the Stones’ End in the Borough, which moves with the extension of the Pavement. Thus the actual distance of any place cannot be known without minute inquiry, and local knowledge of London.”

ABSTRACT OF THE ANSWERS AND RETURNS Made pursuant to an Act, passed in the Eleventh Year of the Reign of His Majesty King George IV, intituled, "An ACT for taking an Account of the Population of Great Britain, and of the Increase or Diminution thereof.”

"Driver location signs will enable emergency services to attend the scene of an incident much quicker in many situations, which will help to reduce the time needed to deal with the incident, reduce the risk of a secondary incident occurring and therefore will help to improve road safety and reduce delays to road users... The main carriageway must be identified as 'A' in one direction (e.g. clockwise, or the direction heading away from London) and 'B' in the opposite direction (e.g. anti-clockwise, or the direction heading towards London)."
