SO3288 : Pre-Worboys direction sign

taken 8 years ago, near to Bishop's Castle, Shropshire, Great Britain

Pre-Worboys direction sign
Pre-Worboys direction sign
A surviving pre-1965 road sign. The arrow and road numbers feature many small reflectors to make the sign easier to read at night. The ones on the arrow are clearly visible, the ones on the road numbers are more easily seen on the larger images (click "more sizes" to view the larger version of the photo).

The B4385 actually now uses a slightly different route through town so the sign is not quite correct. No-one would get lost by following it though, so it would be a shame to remove such a nice historic feature because of this technicality.
Pre-Worboys road signs

These are known as pre-Worboys signs because in 1965 new signs were introduced acting on the recommendations of the Worboys Committee which had been tasked with reviewing the UK's road signage. The new designs have mostly remained in current use with only minor changes.
