A rusty cast iron post from the Edwardian era, located near the junction of London Road (A6) and Trevor Street. Used to mark the location of underground telephone cables or joints.
For more detail, see photo of an identical post about 35m along the street NY4154 : Old GPO telephone cable marker (2), close up.
Two more of these markers can be seen further out of town, on London Road at Harraby Link & Link.

UPDATE : This marker post has now been removed. It was present in Google Street View images in March 2019, but by September 2020 the post had gone, leaving just a dark mark on the wall behind where it was - see LinkExternal link .
