Geo-Trips :: From Bucks to Worcs

Stourport

A drive from Aylesbury, Sat, 9 Feb 2019 by David Howard

It's a long story. Till the mid 2000s there was a pre-Worboys T junction sign on my old block in Hampstead Garden Suburb. I knew it was there but never thought to take a photo of it. In 2008 I got another one in Ware but as it had no triangle still needed the whole item. I found a negative with the local one in the background but it was so small the words were not legible so not adequate. Finally I found one in Stourport, after one north of Peterborough had been removed before I was going, and one from the pre-1950s type with pointed arrows and made of enamel. I met Dave who owns the Baldwin House Hotel it stands outside, and his painter keeps the pole shiny when it needs a new coat of black paint. I also covered new roads from Oxford and back to Bicester although due to getting lost on the way it was dark by the time I left Stourport so struggled for chances to get any photos with the required artificial lighting.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
