TSRGD Tourist Campsite

In 1994, The then, Department of Transport, discovered that people confused these signs with other direction signs, so a new method was devised; to have these signs brown.

In 2002 they added Services Signs to be brown, as previously they were blue, which was confused with signs on motorways.
