..close to Cherry Eye Bridge are this original 18th centrury milestone along with a later milepost.
From Listed Buildings Online:
"Milestone. c 1779 for Caldon Canal Co. Dressed /ashlar stone. Roughly triangular/ wedge shaped - rounded to top and approximately 60 cm high To the left it reads "1", to the right it reads "16".Dates to the first phase ofthe Caldon Canal before its extension to Uttoxeter."
I assume the "1" would be "1 mile to Froghall Wharf"
1980's Replacement by the Caldon Canal Society
