It is good to see one of these increasingly rare signs. I wonder whether the spelling 'Hillsley' was current at the time, or just a mistake.
It is also intriguing to see the distance to London, more than 100 miles away and even then quite a large place, quoted to the nearer half mile. Was this to Charing Cross Station, I wonder.
