Indeed! I never turn left out of that junction so I'd not noticed!

Also of interest is the Sea View pub. It might seem an odd name for a pub as far inland as Chorley, but I can confirm that it is possible to see Blackpool Tower on a clear day, and the sea itself on a VERY clear one.

I found this beauty yesterday on Flickr in Sudbury (not the one down the road for me, I had to get to Suffolk) and went today and got it, it still applies to the bus stand today.

Another one spotted on my travels; I think this is pre-Worboys based on the font but in all honesty it's not my specialism.

We're on the B1286 in New Herrington, west of Sunderland. The 2009 Streetview Image caputres it best. Intriguing street names too!

Apart from the arrow technically yes, but also a 'leading to' a road sign which are classed under road names. Not many like that though, here's another in Chiswick.
