TL2502 : Coal Tax Pillar

near to Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Coal Tax Pillar
Coal Tax Pillar
This, I believe (from looking at other Geographs) is a Coal Tax Pillar, marking the boundary of the London Coal Tax area where a levy had to be paid if coal passed this point. Cf. TQ3056 : Coal Tax Post
24 VICT probably indicates that it was erected in the 24th year of Queen Victoria's reign, i.e. 1861
