Posts 74 and 75
or Post 75
Posts 74 and 75 both probably lost forever during the building of the M25 which can be seen in the background of this image. The Wraysbury (or Wyrardisbury) River may well have been moved by a few yards.
Similarly Post 149
probably disappeared during the building of the M25. Compare with Posts 80 and 81
which appear to have been relocated during the building of the Wraysbury (or Wyrardisbury) Reservoir
The Nail list gives a description of TQ 037 770
on S bank of stream at NE corner of grounds of Poyle County Infants School.
It is probably the same school which is now called Pippins Primary School. A better grid ref for the post is probably TQ 0360 7692
and the post may be visible from Pippins Park accessed off Raymond Close
TQ 034 766
S side of Bath Road about 10 yards E of junction with Dickens Place
with Plate 77 visible at far left
The London Stone - the great … great grandparent of the posts.
