Canal milepost, erected c.1805. Constructed using a roughly hewn limestone post with '42 miles, Dublin' carved onto one of the faces. Located adjacent to lock 20 (15402724).

Appraisal

An interesting feature in the landscape associated with the Royal Canal. This is one of very few remaining examples of a canal milestone along the Royal Canal, the others having been removed and lost over the years.
