Pre-Worboys No Entry, Kenton, painted

I found this recently at my local library car park and have just finished painting it. Far better now, isn't it.

My research has only found one other of these since the pair were removed at Pinewood Studios, and although the paint has long worn off the words can be seen in relief. It is at the entry to the library car park in Christchurch Avenue.

These are earlier than the usual blue or yellow edged signs, and although written on both sides are not fingerposts. This is at the Clamp Hill junction.

This is where Edgwarebury Lane becomes privately owned and is clearly made by someone old enough to remember when they looked like this. The sign is made on hardboard by a firm in Enfield displaying an 020 number so made since 2001.

There's a matching pair of these on the entrance to the Manor House estate in Stanmore, clearly old but as painted on wood do not conform to any official format. Unfortunately the engineers used the wood to attach the security light instead of going to the trouble to screw it into the masonry above.

Lane directions, Harrow

My sign logic told me these tend to come in pairs and this was the other side of the junction with no sun damage.

I've never seen any normal signs on red before, and this may even be the only one of its kind.

A4127 Sudbury Court Drive - Geograph - 1653763.jpg
A4127 Sudbury Court Drive
This road appears, both on the ground and on the map, as if it ought to be one of the main arterial routes into and out of London with a through dual carriageway and outer parallel access roads to the housing estates on either side. However the dual carriageway is only about 500 metres long, most of which is visible in this image, and it runs in a north-easterly / south-westerly direction at ninety degrees to an arterial route. Was it originally intended as a section of some sort of new ring road beyond the North Circular?


Anyway this is the northern end of A4127 in North Wembley. The southern end is in Norwood Green about 6 miles or about 10 kilometres away.
