SU2771 : Ramsbury: Oxford Street

taken 8 years ago, near to Ramsbury, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Ramsbury: Oxford Street
Ramsbury: Oxford Street
Looking north-eastwards from The Square up Oxford Street, there is a fine old yellow and black AA & MU road sign on the wall of the house on the left. It reads:

Aldbourne 3
RAMSBURY.
Marlborough 7
London 68
Erected by the
A.A. & M.U.

The M.U. was the Motor Union and amalgamated with the Automobile Association around 1910, which gives a clue to the sign's age.

Curiously, and possibly because it is in a different county to Ramsbury, Hungerford in Berkshire, which is only 5 miles away, did not warrant a mention on the sign.
