Since being erected earlier this year this Sustrans signpost SJ9594 : Fossil Tree milepost of the "Fossil Tree" design by John Mills has now been painted.
National Cycle Network Mileposts
1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and found along the cycles routes through the UK.

There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, "Rowe Type" by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.
