Coal Tax Post
Coal Tax Post
One of approximately 200 remaining posts.

The posts were erected under the London Coal and Wine Duties Continuance Act, 1861, but some were originally set up under earlier nineteenth century Acts. The duties whose area of application they marked out originated in the seventeenth century and earlier.The City of London had exercised the right of 'metage' (measuring) of coal and other commodities since medieval times and these rights were confirmed by two Charters of King James I. The City was later permitted to set up "a Boundary Stone, or some other permanent Mark" where any turnpike road, public highway, railway or canal entered the District.
