exef05.jpg (248756 bytes) Location:  Stanford Rivers on A113. NGR: TL 5236 9885 Date:   23 October 2002
Maker:  Maldon Iron Works
Details:  This post is in need of a little tender loving care.  A rare example of a guidepost with a road name instead of a location.  (Another example is Lime Kiln Lane, Birchanger.)  By Maldon Iron Works to Essex C.C. order number 1375 dated 17 February 1937.  3 feet 6 inches post topped by a conical finial.  The single 7 inch arm has been repaired in two places.  Ideally a sleeve should be fitted to the upper shaft so the upper assembly will sit square in the post.  Credit:  John V Nicholls
