S37PB55 Little Heywood

 

This is a replacement milepost, so you may wonder why it is being extracted in this photo. The reason is that it was being repositioned further back on the towpath, as the waterway’s contractors kept hitting it with their sit-on mower’s cutting arms!

The plaque reads :

THIS MILEPOST WAS DONATED
IN MEMORY OF
LILLIAN LACEBY
BY HER HUSBAND JIM
REPLACED BY THE
TRENT AND MERSEY CANAL SOCIETY
AND UNVEILED BY HER SISTER DORIS
ON SATURDAY 30TH OCTOBER 1982
