SD6102 : Abram township sign

taken 10 years ago, near to Bickershaw, Wigan, Great Britain

Abram township sign
Abram township sign
Set approximately where the Wigan Junction Railway crossed Bickershaw Lane.
Here's the official explanation for the design of the sign:
The Maypole logo is based on the portable Maypole carried by the Abram Morris Dancers, but is also intended to act as a reminder of Abram's past as a mining community, in particular by remembering the Maypole Colliery. The design also features flowers in 'canal art' style, a pointer to Abram's proximity to the Leigh Branch of the Leeds and Liverpool canal which runs parallel to the main road through the village until the road crosses the canal at Dover Lock.
