Historic Highstone restored
A historic stone has been unveiled following a restoration.
The Highstone at the junction of Hollybush Hill and New Wanstead in Snaresbrook, and was used as a mile-marker displaying distances between Hyde Park Corner and various locations around Epping Forest.
Erected in the 1800s, residents have been campaigning for more than three years for the landmark to be restored after extensive erosion left its markings hard to read.
Due to more recent boundary changes, the stone is now officially situated in Redbridge, after previously being in Waltham Forest.
