S87PB05 Saltersford Tunnel

Milepost 87 / 5 is by Saltersford Tunnel

S86PB06 Barnton Wharf Milepost Index S88PB04 Bridge 206

This milepost is on the towpath alongside Saltersford Tunnel, so it is NOT visible to boaters. This is because the towpath  is climbing in its own cutting from the north-western portal of Saltersford Tunnel towards ground level. The tunnel is behind the post in the photographs.
