It's on one of those multi-piece boards so is almost certainly a relatively recent manufacturing but a direct copy of the old sign it replaced, in a similar vein to the 1:6 sign I posted the other week.
I wonder how this one came to be made, though, as surely the new sign design would be 'off the shelf (or computer file)'? It's not as if the old one would be photographed and the maker works off that or something similar.
Thats at Duddon just west of Tarporley along the A51 isn't it? Interesting to see it's not been replaced yet even though the one below looks brand new..Kevin Roads wrote: ↑Sun Sep 26, 2021 16:08Out around Nantwich and I noticed loads of blue-borders, a few pre-Warboys and plenty of general mankiness but I thought this one was worth stopping for (Id be surprised if it hasn't featured before but it's always good to have an update of what's still surviving):

Classic. I've come across some non existant warning / speed limit signs recently.
These are pretty much bleached out now (5 years after GSV) https://email@example.com ... 312!8i6656
Give way ahead (i assume this is) https://firstname.lastname@example.org ... 384!8i8192 just round the corner near the A41.
Plenty of relics to be found in this area, especially early blue bordered.
I like the crossroads sign, there can't be that many of those left, surely?
I was just north of there the other week (when I posted the massive blue-bordered sign at Whitchurch) on the roads from Llangollen - Ruabon - Overton - Penley - Whitchurch and commented that there are loads of old signs around that area. Unfortunately, a lot of them are on roads that aren't best-suited to stopping and taking photos. Yes, you could do a StreetView link but it's not quite the same.
