Sustrans Milepost Painting

On our patch we have half a dozen or so of the cast iron mileposts which were funded by RBS in the early days of the National Cycle Network.
Most have been painted in a variety of styles and colours, by our own Rangers, but this was a long time ago and most could do with a repaint.
We understand that Sustrans now have an artist who is willing to carry out this task. Having seen an example of her work (see below), I think that we should be asking her to pay us a visit and suggest that she might repaint the post at Mickleover Station on NCN Route 54/68 (for a start) and that we should treat her to a meal at The Great Northern PH nearby when the job is done.

This newly painted post is on NCN 5 as we approach Chester and with due regard to our faithful Rangers who have painted our posts previously, I think that this effort puts the job on a different level, adding a real touch of class to the National Cycle Network.

If she only charges the cost of a meal then it sounds a pretty good bargain to me. I must have passed quite close to this particular sign during my recent ride from Chester to Wrexham as I went west along the River Dee before crossing at Higher Ferry to reach Saltney.

Have just noticed today that the one at Mickleover Station has been done.
