The Milepost Gallery

On the left is a list of the mileposts covered by this site and their location. They are linked to the individual milepost pages which give a brief description of where the post is located and the surrounding area.

These pages contain small, thumbnail images showing the pictures of the milepost. Clicking on the thumbnail will link to a page showing the full-size image.


This site went online on 1st November 2002 and contained all the mileposts from Derwent Mouth and Shardlow (milepost 0) to Barton Turn (milepost 20). This update section shows when I have added the other pictures to the site, or have made any other changes. All mileposts had been added by the end of 2006.
