The location of this post is shown in TQ1168 : Walton on Thames Water Works (3) and TQ1168 : Walton on Thames Water Works, Gate 3.

This post was originally to the west of Island Barn Reservoir on the east bank of the former course of the River Mole, around 250 metres north of its divergence from the River Ember. It was moved to the Water Works in 1977. It has been temporarily taken out of the ground during renovation works - showing the lower part of the post that is usually buried underground.

There are over 200 coal tax posts located around London, most of which are 3 ft high white-painted bollards LinkExternal link . The posts were erected under the Coal and Wine Duties (Continuation) Act of 1861 to mark the points at which duty had to be paid on coal being transported to London. The boundary was set at that of the Metropolitan Police District, and the resulting revenue was used by the Corporation of the City of London to fund public works.
