Plans are afoot to restore a group of three cast iron mileposts of the squat triangular-section type, all around the village of Alderminster. Two are still in position where they have been for 120 years or more, while the Alderminster, Stratford Road post is in private hands after its rescue some years ago. It will be returned to a spot very close to its original position, after restoration.
In addition, Warwickshire Milestone Society member Rodney Ousbey provided information which led to the discovery of a seventh post in the unique tall ‘gaslamp’ series to add to the six previously restored in 2017. The Kenilworth owner has very kindly donated it to the Milestone Society for restoration and return to an historically correct site along the former Stratford on Avon to Long Compton Turnpike.
We hope to re-start the project just as soon as we emerge safely from the Pandemic lockdown.
