SK3114 : Wrong!

taken 11 years ago, near to Donisthorpe, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Originally the Ashby Canal was 30 miles in length, hence this mile marker. During the 60's the top 8 miles were closed thereby making all the posts in the remaining 22 miles incorrect. Despite this they all were kept. Since the restoration of the closed section this post was reinstated but it is still incorrect as the canal will now only be 29 miles in total. A charming little feature of the cut which should remain.
