Uttoxeter canal mileposts

The Trust has restored mileposts along the line of the Uttoxeter Canal as two projects. Posts in the section from Oakamoor to Denstone were restored as a Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership Project. From Denstone to Uttoxeter the replacement posted were funded by CUCT volunteers.

This means that all posts along the canal are now in place except for one to be situated between Froghall and Oakamoor, which is on land with no public access. This post was recast as part of the CVLLP project and has been kept in store. One original milepost, number 19 remains in its original location with two more known to exist, now on corners of the bowling green at Denstone, where they have been for many years.

You can follow the line of mileposts using our guides. These are PDFs designed to be printed double-sided on A4 and folded to A5.

More information about each of the posts and the reinstatement project will be added later.
