Painted Fossil Tree Milepost


In my post of 17th July 2014 I showed you the "fossil tree" signpost near Stockport Road.

It is one of several erected by Sustrans on the former Godley to Apethorn railway line, now Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route 62. 1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and they are now to be found along the cycles routes through the UK.

Since then work has begun on painting the signs. This one probably still has a little more work to be done on it yet.

A contribution to signs, signs.
