Obelisk 21,  TL 370 051
Slipe Lane, Wormley. On east side of the railway line.
Described in ?1966 as "lying in several pieces on the ground. The inscription not identifiable."
Now re-erected, top foot or so of height missing but crest, inscription (14 & 15 VIC. C 146) and Bench Mark all clearly visible.

(The photos of this obelisk and the canal stone above were taken at dawn on May Day morning while the light was a bit too weak for my camera.)

Midway between these two Tax Posts. Just a post to announce that this is No. 100 but nice echoes of Tax Posts.
Cab drivers on night shift wish that all houses showed their numbers as clearly as this.

←  New Street  and  High Street  →

The other post can be seen in the background of each of these pictures.
No descriptive signs of any sort.  No indication that these posts are not in their original positions - compare with the careful notice on Post 98 that it has been moved just two metres.

Rickmansworth Road, Harefield at the point where it becomes Harefield Road, Rickmansworth. 
Just on to the Hertfordshire side of the county boundary - a 'Welcome to Hillingdon' sign can be seen on the right of this photo.
