SW4731 : Up a gear

near to Chyandour, Cornwall, Great Britain

Up a gear
Up a gear
Fingerpost at the junction of Gear Hill, leading off to the right, and Polmennor Road. I would surmise that the name 'Gear' in this instance is a corruption of the Cornish word 'ker' meaning fort; it's not an uncommon place name in Penwith.
