Replacement NCN milepost at Hartside
Replacement NCN milepost at Hartside
This colourful structure is a National Cycle Network milepost LinkExternal link , one of a number donated to the NCN project by the Royal Bank of Scotland. This specimen is one of the "Welsh" design by Andrew Rowe, and takes its inspiration from the industrial and nautical heritage of the artist's home in Swansea. An alternative explanation is that it is derived from a Welsh love-spoon. Mileposts are often found painted in outrageous colours according to local initiative.

The "fingers" at the top of the milepost are missing (compare NZ2888 : National Cycle Network milepost at Woodhorn).

This milepost appears to be a replacement for the original. Until 2015, the National Cycle Network milepost at this point was of the "English" "fossil tree" pattern (see NY6441 : Coast to Coast marker, Hartside).
