Full Description

Milepost, northeast of Perryfoot Farm, Peak Forest, an early 19th century structure. Cast-iron milepost, east face rusty, west face in good condition. The east face reads 'SPARROWPIT / 1 MILE', the west face reads 'SHEFFIELD / 20 MILES / HATHERSAGE / 10 MILES / CASTLETON / 4 MILES'. It stands on the 1758 Sheffield-Sparrowpit Gate Turnpike, (but is the same style as mileposts on the 1812 diversion, so presumably dates from then).

Hollow cast; iron triangular post with dished top. North east face reads: 'SHEFFIELD 20 MILES, HATHERSAGE 10 MILES, CASTLETON 4 MILES'. South west face reads: 'SPARROWPIT 1 MILE'.
