C'est l'un des 28 poteaux en fonte, à l’allure anglaise, disséminés en forêt. Ils ont été installés de 1876 à 1902 à l’initiative du duc d’Aumale, du comte de Paris et du comte Gaston d’Orléans, propriétaires successifs de la forêt d’Eu.

Les poteaux de la forêt d’Eu sont aussi uniques : généralement en bois dans les autres forêts, ils ont ici la particularité d’être en fonte et pèsent chacun plusieurs tonnes.

Forêt royale, elle porte en elle les marques de son histoire et les poteaux aux carrefours des routes rappellent aussi les glorieuses chasses des rois.

Ce poteau situé en foret d'Eu au niveau du carrefour Isabelle date de 1897 et donne les directions vers 4 chemins différents.
