Old GPO cable marker in High Street
Old GPO cable marker in High Street
This old cast iron marker is on the south side of High Street and 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.
