Post 138,  TQ 228 552
West side of Deans Lane, Walton on the Hill in garden of "The Rise".
The occupiers of this house, showing a proper respect for the City's crest, have put a dip in the wall to enable it to be seen. (Compare with the way Post 136, above is totally ignored.)

Brighton Road, Hooley
East side of road about 150 yards north of the present boundary between Croydon and Reigate & Banstead.
Very dirty because this is a very busy road and very difficult to spot when the trees are in leaf.

035033 035034 037015
Brighton Road, Hooley.  Modern boundary signs situated between the two Tax Posts in the Brighton Road.
The middle one is almost as cryptic as a Tax Post:   HA = Highways Agency   TfL = Transport for London

035136 Post 164,  TQ 289 568
Brighton Road, Hooley
Corner of Netherne Drive, beside Star Bridge.

Not found!   Obelisk 165,  TQ 289 567
The western of two ... The eastern of two ... ... cuttings at this point
037013 037012 Looking south from Star Bridge (Netherne Drive)
037017 037018 Looking north from Forge Bridge
'West side of Redhill railway line at Hooley, 100 yards south of Star Bridge' [CoL]
The Corporation of London page singles out this Obelisk for mention as 'inaccessible except by rail'. But in fact you get a clear view of this part of the track from Star Bridge or Forge Bridge, 300 yards further south.
I would expect to see the Obelisk in both the left hand pictures above but I have looked very carefully and cannot see any sign of it.
