Designed by David Dudgeon, this is an example of one of the four types of millennium milepost used on the national cycle network. 1000 millennium mileposts were installed in total. The other mileposts were designed by Iain McColl, Andrew Rowe and Jon Mills who also created the Meridian Gateway at Waltham Abbey (to the north). They are made of cast iron.
Following the closure of the Millennium Dome to the public on 31 December 2000, this section of the Thames path was opened on 18 September 2001. The milepost is one of just two located on the Meridian. The other is just over 70 miles to the north.
