This is the sign of the closed Moorings Tavern, which backs onto the end of the Stourbridge Canal's Town Arm. Unfortunately I was pressed for time when taking this photo, and could not safely cross the very busy High Street to get a close-up view. So this is an enlarged view of one of several photos I took from the other side of the road. Despite it not being to the quality I would prefer, I think it is an important record, as no-one knows if this pub will re-open and/or whether this sign will remain. There is no other photo of it on GeoGraph, or on other sites, as far as I can tell.
