SD5823 : Canal Milepost

taken 13 years ago, near to Clayton Brook, Lancashire, Great Britain

Canal Milepost
Canal Milepost
This mile post appears to have been moved about 50yds from the previous course of the Walton Summit Branch of the Leeds Liverpool Canal, which is now buried under the M61.
It has been re-erected at the corner of a pub which may well have been a canal serving pub, even if not directly alongside the canal. It is certainly old enough and does appear to be on the old map that comes up when checking the location.
