Harper Lane, Shenley 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.

The house where W. S. Gilbert lived and died. (Cannot think of any connection with Coal Tax Posts!)

I cannot now recall where exactly I took this photo but I am pretty sure it is just the opposite side of the path from Obelisk 52. The railway at this point is the Metropolitan Line between Northwood and Moor Park. I cannot see why London County Council Tramways should need this box - more than an hundred yards from the nearest tram tracks.

The seam in the road surface indicates that this is still a boundary - between Hillingdon on the left and Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire. TQ 078 923

Stockers House. Martin Nail lists this as Post 218 but we will show it more in geographical sequence.

The building just left of centre is Stockers House.
Stockers House below Stocker's Lock No. 82, Grand Union Canal near Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, England. The house appears on the extreme left in this image. In the foreground is a Coal Tax post listed as No. 218 in this list.
The house was built in 1861-2 by the City of London Corporation for the inspector of coal traffic on the canal. The height is explained because its site is on the downstream side of the lock and there was a need to be able to see boats approaching from the upstream side. Listed Building No. 1173911.

A collection of old tools on display beside the lock plus an old sign with the stern warning the towing path is private property … there is no public right of way. In fact most canal towpaths are not rights of way but "permissive paths".
