Shobnall Fields has been the location of the IWA National Festival twice, the first time in 2004 (the year when this photo was taken).

Milepost in 2004 Top post is probably this one.

Four mileposts were recovered from under the road arches at Dallow Lane Lock on 16th October 1977. Only 2 of the posts can be positively identified from the photograph above (14/78 and 17/75), but the top post is probably this one.

Here is this milepost in 2021 (photo © Julie Parsonage) showing how much the hedge has grown behind it.
