Thanks to Streetview I've found another survivor in very good condition. Meanwhile the road has been upgraded to an A road but no one cares about that when they're lost.

Appledore Sign - Coppermine - 34.jpg
Appledore Sign

Apart from the sign at Woodchurch on the B2067, this is the only other pre-Worboys 'junction approach' sign in South East Kent (as far as I know). It's on the B2080 in the village of Appledore. It is smaller than its brother on the 2067, being supported by a single pole.
