Where is Boshaw Whams Reservoir?

Old milestone One of the 615 milestones set up for the newly formed West Riding County Council in 1893/94.  Over half still remain by the roadside.  In the Contract they were to be painted blue with white letters but then black letters on white was used, perhaps easier to read.  This one on the west side of the B6106 just south of the junction to Dunford Bridge was black with all legends white when first recorded by the Milestone Society in 2002. By 2021 it had been repainted but the place names and mileages left unfinished.
