Signs that made me chuckle
« on: 17:58:08, 02/07/18 »
Walked another section of the Essex Way today, Horksley Heath to Coggeshall.  I have to say not the most interesting of walks but 2 signs I spotted did make me laugh and ponder.


First of all I had to be wary of very young drivers but no advice for us older people :) :) :)





And further up the same road I bumped into a very friendly and helpful farmer but one of his signs was a bit concerning, for those who don't abide by the rules.





You have been warned :)

For those using the trains to get out on the fells - beware.

Haha, love finding weird and wonderful signs.  This one outside a local pub says "free air guitar with each pint".  Mighty generous of them is that  :D




And a sign in someone's back garden in Kilham, E.Yorks.

I'd be inclined to put a sign pointing the other way underneath the "Corvette" sign - saying "Ford Cortina"   :D


... .go on MarkT.... you know you want to  ;D

Just North of Lincoln - there must be 'heavy spitters' in the area if they need to warn motorists.

For some reason the pic isn't showing AdeE but, if it's where I think it is, I'm pretty certain I drove through it on the A15 the other weekend  :)


Edit: Pic's showing now and yes, I did!

If there is only one sign, this is the lady who owns the house. Vintage Vixen is a blogger, in the West Midlands I believe. Her business is selling anything vintage.

Hi Ilona, the house was, if my memory's correct, in Southerness on the Solway coast.

Mel, no, I walked on....
