Houses in High Street, one converted to a small business premises, showing the context of Coal Tax Post no 193 (see TQ4563 : Coal Tax Post no 193). The houses were built in 1867 by the Fox family, proprietors of the nearby Oak Brewery (see TQ4563 : Superior Drive), for their employees.
Coal Tax Posts

Coal Tax Posts were markers defining the area within which the Corporation of London could charge duty on coal entering the area. This area had been expanded in 1851 but then reduced in 1861 to coincide with the Metropolitan Police District of the day, the limits of which were between about 20 km and 30km from Charing Cross. It is from this latter time that most of the existing posts date. See LinkExternal link for further background, with much more comprehensive information at Martin Nail's excellent site, LinkExternal link. This includes a full list of extant posts, at LinkExternal link.
