This is an original milepost.

A 2021 picture by Steph Johnson showed that somebody had recently repainted the top half wrongly. The mileage to Shardlow should read 15 (not 18). Presumably whoever repainted it had to try to work out what the figures were and didn’t know that all our posts add up to 92.

In 2022 we corrected the 15 to 18 whilst attending the IWA Festival of Water at Burton-on Trent.
