Iron Boundary Post, Coulsdon. The "Iron Man" east of Ditches Lane, Coulsdon is being re-sited 12 ft. south of its present position as, being on a blind bend, it has been repeatedly struck by vehicles and is in danger of complete demolition.
In those images where it is upright, it seems to be showing a lot of leg. But it occurred to me that this may be intentional. If it was more deeply rooted, a car hitting the post might break it and/or cause more serious injuries to the car passengers.
