Milepost 62 ~ Harecastle

Link to picture of milepost This is an original milepost and stands overlooking the southern entrance to the Harecastle Tunnel. At this end of the tunnel, both entrances retain their original appearance.
Link to Harecastle (south) The entrance to Telford's tunnel is on the left whilst Brindley's original tunnel entrance can be seen to the right, just to the left of the building in the picture. The water emerging from the tunnel is stained a vivid orange due to the levels of iron in the rock through which the tunnel passes. It is something that no photograph can do justice to, especially on a bright, sunny day.
