Milepost 55 ~ Stoke

Link to picture of milepost An original milepost that, at the time I passed it, has also deviated from the usual black and white colours (see milepost 53).
Link to view north (1) Behind the wall to the left is the D-road. It was being improved during 2004, hence the cranes. A short way north was where the branch line known as the Newcastle-under-Lyme Canal used to link into the canal. This arm finally dissappeared when the D-road was built.
