The first phase of the Restoring Warwickshire Waymarkers Project was completed on the 13th January 2023, when the surviving three, now restored, Alderminster Parish mileposts were reinstated on the highways of the A422 and A3400.
The restoration and reinstatement work, funded by the National Lottery, Alderminster Parish Council and the Milestone Society and supported by Warwickshire County Highways was carried out by Fisher Landscapes in conjunction with The Milestone Society.
The mileposts date back from 1901 and were manufactured for the County of Worcester when Alderminster was in Worcestershire prior to boundary changes later in the 20th century. Two of the mileposts have been put back in their pre-restoration locations. The third has also been put back in its correct position by the entrance to Alderminster village. It has spent time in the Shipston-on-Stour museum after been rescued from a skip by the late Mike Ashley, the museum's joint curator. Before he passed away Mike requested that The Milestone Society should use its best endeavours to restore the post and put it back in its rightful place. This has now been achieved.
The restored mileposts now once again sit proudly in the highway adding to the historic wayside heritage for the benefit of the general public.
A copy of the report on the condition of the culvert is available to view here.

Alscot Estate has raised concern about the increased use - by dog walkers - of the fields adjacent to The Bell.
The estate withdrew agreements for grazing on this land to allow immediate access by Alscot Estate/The Bell to clean fields.
Since livestock has been removed, the fields are being frequented more and more by dog walkers.
The land does not have any public rights of way across it, nor has public access been sanctioned.
Therefore, people are requested to refrain from using these fields for exercising dogs.
Alscot Estate is sympathetic to the needs of dog walkers and is exploring the possibility of offering alternative routes across estate land.
