This is a replacement milepost, sponsored by Ash Tree Boat Club, and unveiled by Connie Markham (Commodore of the Ash Tree Boat Club) on Sunday 21st September 1980 (photo of the actual unveiling © Ash Tree Boat Club archives, courtesy Anthony Wattis). In the photograph are ATBC Chairman George Seward, Roger Lee (TMCS chairman) and ATBC Commodore Connie Markham. In the early years of the society (and ATBC for that matter) many Ash Tree members were very involved with the society, four of whom served on the committee.
