Derwent Mouth Milepost

Link to view of Derwent Mouth Milepost This is a special milepost cast for the Trent & Mersey Canal Society to commemorate two hundred and fifty years of the canal.
Link to picture of Dedication Plate The dedication plate shows that the milepost was unveiled by the Duchess of Devonshire in January 1985.
Link to view downstream The milepost is sited alongside Derwent Mouth lock, a few hundred yards from the confluence of the canal and the river Trent. This River Derwent also meets the Trent at this point (hence the name Derwent Mouth lock). This view looks down to the river from the opposite side of the lock to the towpath.
