Halford Milepost

A small cast iron milepost, restored some years ago after suffering damage. No others of this design are known in Warwickshire. The story is that a public utility company was digging a trench in the pavement adjacent to the milepost and in the process managed to break the post in half. A nearby local resident spotted the broken milepost, admonished the workers and took the post to his workshop where he welded it back together, repainted it and reinstated it in the verge after the trench work had been completed.
