Coal posts in south Hertfordshire

Below are images of some of the coal posts found in south Hertfordshire taken in 2000. They are dotted around the countryside, some at the junctions of main roads, others buried away in woodland and hedgerows. All are more than 130 years old. A feature on this site explains the history of the posts.

All the grid references given below the pictures relate to the Ordnance Survey Landranger Series 1:50,000 scale map for Luton and Hertford (sheet 166).

Click here for the location details of all the coal posts in Hertfordshire. If you want to see the exact location of the posts on an Ordnance Survey map, click here and enter the exact grid reference (e.g. TL 271 035) in the search field and the map will be downloaded for you.

If you know of any coal posts in Hertfordshire that are not included in the list please e-mail history@brookmans.com with the details. An ordinance survey map reference (see above) would be a great help.
