This milepost was replaced in 1983. Our replacement post was then vandalised and had to be repaired. The plaque was also vandalised. It was removed and replaced by another one at a safer location.

The wording of the new plaque was changed slightly :-

THE MILEPOST EAST OF HANDSACRE

By 2017 the milepost was looking a bit sorry for itself (but was still complete!)  (2017 photo ¬©RogerEvans)
