036175 036174
Marked on map 130,  TQ 223 581    East side of Old London Road by the 5 furlong post of Epsom Downs Racecourse.
Post 131 can be seen in the background of the left photo.
The stumps of the bolts which held the correction plate in place have each
received a dab of black paint as though they were part of the inscription.
(Furlong and florin are two words which sadly are dropping out of the language.  Both are still valid and both were part of attempts to decimalise the Imperial system of measures.  1 furlong = 10 chains = 1000 links.  Also, the furlong is conveniently close to 200 metres - 201.168 metres to be precise.)
