taken 8 years ago, near to Tideswell, Derbyshire, England

A623 at Lane Head
A623 at Lane Head
Lane Head, Tideswell, is a complex junction on the A623, and a good place to display advertising hoardings, it seems (see SK1576 : Roadside hoardings at Lane Head)

This one was for the EU Referendum, one of very few I saw on my travels, and from the only side of the campaign who bothered to erect signs that I could see.
The A623

The A623 is one of the main east-west roads across the Peak District. It runs for approximately 14 miles between the roundabout junction with the A6 near Chapel en le Frith (SK0779 : A6/A623 Junction near Dove Holes) and Baslow where it meets the A619.

EU Referendum 23 June 2016

The UK is set to have a referendum on 23 June 2016 on whether or not to remain a member of the European Union (EU), an economic and political partnership involving 28 European countries. Basically, a referendum is a vote in which people eligible to vote can take part, normally giving a "Yes" or "No" answer to a question. The side receiving more than half of all votes cast is considered to have won. According to current opinion polls the British public are fairly evenly split.
