Major old person boring alert! I have not seen the one you describe but you quite often find these by railway lines, particularly disused ones, or by old main roads. They were used to put the milk churns on - straight from the farmer's trailer straight on to the collection lorries or trains. They were also used at places where you had to dismount from your horse (to cross a railway line or river) so that you could get back on again afterwards.

I have been reliably informed that it is a horse mounting point and during some work on the A540 it was damaged and therefore had to be rebuilt.

Quite why you would want to mount a horse at that particular part of the A540 is beyond anyone - or maybe someone at Leahurst can provide more information ?

Okay a question for the group.... If you have lived in neston forever then you are referred to as a "Youser" Thats how I spell it anyway - but where in History does this come from ? I have lived in Neston forerver and often get called "Youse" (and have even used the greeting myself) but why - what's its origin ?

Answers on the back of a postcard please to "Why the Youser Competition....."

I was always lead to believe that the origins of the term "Youser" came from days gone by where wealthy gents were greeted by the phrase "Good Day to You Sir ! "

Over the years its become a term of endeerment between Neston residents andthe "Youser" was born.

Anyone else have a different answer ?
