Plaque recording restoration of section of Newport Canal
Plaque recording restoration of section of Newport Canal
This plaque is affixed to the wall of the bridge carrying the nearby road across the canal. The Urban District Council responsible was re-organised out of existence decades ago. Interestingly, the traditional contraction of Shropshire to Salop, was also abandoned around the time the UK joined the European Union in 1973. Nowadays Shrops is the preferred alternative, as the older word causes considerable amusement to French speakers. Anyone with a good French dictionary will be able to see why.
