History

Caption for Brampton, The Royal Oak And Signpost C1955

The mile post on the former green was set up by the Turnpike Trust in the 18th century for travellers using the new turnpike roads. The limestone obelisk has a ball finial and is mounted on a square base. The south-east face has a hand pointing 'To Thrapston' and 'To Huntingdon', and the south-west face has a hand pointing 'To London'. The Royal Oak is in a good position to attract customers from the turnpike.

It was a portakabin type building and there was one lady who used to run it. I wish we'd taken a photo.  We moved to Brampton around 1965 and I remember it being around for a while after that.
