Embsay:  Signpost on Elm Tree Square
Embsay: Signpost on Elm Tree Square
At one time, these excellent signposts were widespread throughout the West Riding; after the ridiculous mash-up of the 900-year old County boundaries that occurred in 1974, they met with a variety of fates. Those that at that time came under the control of Lancashire County Council were subject to having their top sector sliced off, a spiteful piece of official vandalism that was widely condemned. However, North Yorkshire took a more sensible view and allowed the signposts to remain, as with this example in Embsay.
