Section 94 of the Railways' Clauses Act of 1845 requires that the length of all railway lines be measured and that markers of some kind be installed at quarter-mile intervals to denote these measured distances. The mileposts within the SCRCA identify the distance in rail-miles from London St Pancras via the Midland Railway Company's most direct route. For more information, please refer to the related article "Settle-Carlisle Railway Mileposts".
