Milepost 1 ~ Near Shardlow

Link to picture of milepost An original milepost, the plate bearing the initials of the company that cast them is in keeping with the majority of the rest of the posts and is slightly more ornamental than the square shape of mileposts 0, 2, 3 and 4. Compare this with the shape of the plate on any of those mileposts to see the difference.
Link to view of milepost Until recently, this would have been quite an isolated spot. Since the construction of the A50 trunk road, it is now over-shadowed by a bridge carrying cars and lorries over the canal.
