Triangular cast iron milepost, probably by J Heywood of Derby. The milepost has a sloped top and a pointed head plate above. The head is inscribed '136 / LONDON'. The west side of the milepost is inscribed 'ALFRE N / 3½ / CHEST D / 14' and the east side has 'DERBY / 9½ / BURTON / 21'. It stands on the B6179 (formerly the A61), a turnpike road originally run by the Alfreton and Derby Turnpike Trust. (1)
