Milepost 7 ~ Barrow on Trent

Link to picture of milepost This is the most easterly of the mileposts that have been replaced by the Trent & Mersey Canal Society. Unfortunately, the dedication plate that accompanies all the restored mileposts has been vandalised in this case and removed.
Link to view west The milepost is near to the village of Barrow-upon-Trent and stands directly opposite the road between Barrow and Sinfin where it runs alongside the canal. It is fairly equally placed between Barrow Bridge and Deep Dale Bridge (numbers 16 and 17).
Link to view to east Although the dedication plate has been removed, a copy of Grand Trunk (the magazine of the Trent and Mersey Canal Society) from November 1981 reveals that this post was unveiled on Sunday August 30th "in the name of Clayton Line Ltd. by local farmer and TV personality Ted Moult."
