Valve marker stone, Lisburn Street, Alnwick
Valve marker stone, Lisburn Street, Alnwick
I have not see this way of marking the location of water valves before:
carved into a stone in the wall of a house. The legend is "SV 8 ft H 12 ft N" which I interpret as "stop valve 8 feet and hydrant 12 feet to the north". NU1813 : Corner of Lisburn Street and Percy Terrace, Alnwick gives the context.
