On the road to Natland near Kendal, spotted these two objects. Parked up and photographed them. They are literally 50 yards apart. They are a wooden cross made in/carved in 1999 to mark the Millenium and a milestone, probably iron, painted and well preserved. It was one of the first warm days in spring.
