Comments:
The telegraph poles have just been erected ready to receive the wires! The white post at the base of the middle pole could well be the milestone; that is the position that I remember.
The man is standing in front of the house where my brother and I were born.

A map of 1958 confirms that precise position of the milepost and that it was inscribed with "London 32 Brighton 20".
The map also places a bench mark of 437.1 feet above sea level on the north-west corner of the farthest building, the old Post Office. Is it still there, I wonder?
