Cast iron GPO cable marker on Parkgate Road
This old cast iron marker is on the corner of Parkgate Road and Buggen Lane. It carries the insignia for King George, suggesting a date between 1910-1936. Originally there would also have been a plaque below the 'ft ins' (feet and inches), indicating the actual distance to a buried GPO cable. The arrow signifies that the General Post Office was a government department at that time. Thanks to Ross from Geograph and Ian from LinkExternal link for identifying this seemingly unusual plate.

Interestingly all the old maps I have seen name the modern day Buggen Lane as Prospect Road.
