Alderminster, Alscot Park

This cast iron post is intact and in good condition but at the time of writing (Apr 2019) it is in need of straightening and repainting. It is hoped to do this work soon.

It was installed by the Trustees of the Stratford-upon-Avon to Long Compton Turnpike Trust probably sometime in the late 19th century. It is probably not the first mile marker to be installed here, as the Trust Accounts (Warwickshire County Record Office) record that the first markers were stone.
