Milepost 48 / 44  is above Lime Kiln Lock, Stone

S47PB45 Star Lock Milepost Index S49PB43 Meaford Top Lock

This is a replacement milepost unveiled by the Earl of Shrewsbury in 1982. 

The colour photograph below seems to feature the same people, but the clothes have changed, so presumably it was taken later . [Was it a few days later or several years –  Anybody know?]

By 2017 it was sporting a rather strange colour scheme with the lettering white (instead of being picked-out in black), and the bottom section of the post grey. By 2020 a flowerbed had appeared, but the strange colour scheme was unchanged. (Photos © Roger Evans)


The plaque indicates that the sponsorship (unusually) came from abroad. The Canal Society of New Jersey is a very long-standing Life-member of our society. (Photo © Roger Evans)
