Monument record MCC5005 - Fingerpost (site of), Tiptree
|Grid reference||TL 886 153 (point)|
|Civil Parish||TIPTREE, COLCHESTER, ESSEX|
Type and Period (1)
One of the last tangible remains of Alderman Mechi. This is a cast iron direction post with a smooth cylindrical trunk and an acorn motif at the top. There is, and was, only one arm which ended in fingers: the pointing index finger has now broken off. The cast letters read TIPTREE HALL FARM, which was Mechi's property. <1>.
Signpost could not be located, presumably removed sometime between 1971 and 2002. <2>.
