Raised plate at the foot 'J. Haywood Phoenix Foundry Derby'. This is an accurate replica replacement in 1997 by Chellaston Local History Society - the original was damaged by an accident.

On the sloping triangular section at the top is 'ALVASTON' and at the bottom 'J HAYWOOD / PHOENIX FOUNDRY / DERBY'. (3)
