    I love rivets, esp with cut marks..

    Finally as my phone battery flashed up Low Power Mode..
    NS 4381 7084 Bishopton, Greenock Rd, Building.jpg
    A couple or three more to look for in the immediate area, once a village along a main road, now a busy commuter town still spreading on the site of an old armaments factory.

    Isn't it good to see these old milestones and old signposts still in situ,
    today's signage is so bland,
    you can imagine the work that had gone in to creating the boundary post Pete shows above..
    Designed, all the preparation of making the casting box, the molten iron then the cooling and filing down the edges..
    taking it to its intended spot,
    getting bedded in depending on what was needed..

    Today, it is a metal press, I imagine the cut metal is screen printed,
    out to the proposed site and a post (or two) concreted in and the sign then put in place..
    there is no soul to the new signage...:sad:

    And then only one is made!It's preserved, in situ, alongside a newish bypass road. I'm glad they chose to keep it. It'd be a shame to lose the local history since 1822

    The crossing has long since gone.

    Any ideas on the smaller circular stones. Just under 12" high, horizontal arrow pointing away from the bridge. One either side.
    Bridge couldn't be raised, so the road was lowered, leaving elevated footpaths.
    Irish Centre, York Road, Leeds

    Best few hours for a long while, even though some have now gone in the last three years.

    Who, if anyone, would be responsible for marks/plates (Royal property) going missing on Church of England(Royal property)?

    Or am I overthinking things?

    Each individual diocese? That's a big guess.
     
  13. Parish Warden. At least in the States.

    Each application for alterations has to be approved at a higher level, not locally.

    But the marks and the buildings are both the property of the Queen.

  15. See, that's the problem with lacking a Sovereign.
