Early Worboys, A6 near Milnthorpe

One of several old blue-edged signs on the old A6, this one is between Carnforth & Milnthorpe. SLightly blurred pic I'm afraid

The approach to Rutland Square, heading south on the A6. (There's actually a little mistake on this sign: any suggestions?)

Just a simple junction in those days. The road downhill and bearing left is the A6 to Chapel en le Frith, being joined by the A623 from Sparrowpit. Now the junction is a roundabout, none of the buildings on the far side of the junction now exist. At the time of the photo this road was not the A6, but the A624. The A6 main road from Buxton to Whaley Bridge was then routed to the west over Longhill.

The once famous Jungle Cafe, about 1 mile south of Hucks Brow. It doesn't seem to have changed much from old pics, just a couple of new posh windows. Now a caravan dealers.

Old blue edged sign

Along the A6 between Carnforth and Shap summit there are still quite a few elderly road signs with the discontinued blue edge (including some with the thick blue edge which are even older). This one is, well, 3 miles south of Milnthorpe!

Another old blue sign with the thick blue edge. i think that might be some old fashioned reflectors on the posts to the left too, but I wasn't able to stop for long as there was traffic behind

Climbing out Kendal there are a few moreold blue-edged signs (although one has been disappeared since my last trip and has not been replaced). This is a very old one with the thick blue edge.

Whinfell sign - Coppermine - 18374.JPG
Whinfell sign

Another blue edged sign to Whinfell, with two skeletons of signs on the main A6 also visible. Not being a trunk route it's obviously not top priority to replace them. I don't mind - it adds to the olde worlde atmosphere!

Climbing up the old Shap, sharp corners with old rusty crash barriers. Bags of atmosphere.

I love the undulating nature of the A6 here. I can imagine drivers seriously getting the foot down (as much as their vehicles of the day would allow) down this dip to get a run at the climb ahead
