A very faded sign that is! Fun fact about that crossing; it was the last in the country to have wig-wags without an amber light.
Here's a lovely view of them. https://www.google.com/maps/@53.4584622 ... 312!8i6656
Are these the ones re located from Ellesmere Port as Traffic-light-man suggests?

They're the ones. You can clearly make out the original backing board and white border in those images, which is great to see.

It's very possible that they were fobbing me off, however the ones at Vauxhall Motors definitely got removed, and this crossing definitely gained some around the right time!
