This one, next to the River Foyle at Derry, is on regional route 92 which runs from Ballinamallard near Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh to Derry. It forms part of the Ballyshannon to Ballycastle cycle route.

There are four different designs of milepost in the series. This is an example of the design by Welsh artist, Andrew Rowe. It is based upon the nautical and industrial heritage of his native Swansea and can have up to four directional fingers.
