This old sign in Essex is the only known Load Gauge one known in the country remaining plus its partner, they are warning of overhead electrical power cables on the level crossing and were replaced by new ones from 1964 onwards. The odd thing is that although the old design and format (although overhead and cable were usually on two separate lines) it's the first I'm aware of with a different font to the usual 1953-63 one. It's not older than that as none of them looked anything like it, but is similar to the usual font but for unknown reasons not the usual one. The current Transport font is universal officially although the odd error has been picked up but incredibly rare with this system, and previously unseen in the last although the examples are now few and far between.

The snow has gone but we are still getting frost. This was the local pond about 11.30am

Susie looking as though butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, about 30 seconds after she had been causing mayhem.

It turns out that because the sign was for a railway they were also able to make the signs and they had a different font to the roads. It's a rarely used option and the first I've seen but as it's 50 years too late for a decent sample set then I don't know how many others there were.

This is near Hertford on the way there. It's a good thing I took the photos when I did and a video today as we've just had even more snow since then than we did on Saturday and I've got to go out tomorrow evening.

We got a bit of snow overnight, and the temperature dropped too. Although she went for her walk this morning, and asked for her afternoon one, as soon as we got outside the second time, Precious stopped. She tried to shrug out of her harness, and when I put a stop to that she just sat there with one foot raised until I opened the door and let her back inside. Poor kitty!

On a recent trip into the country, we found a wonderful little bookshop in Donnybrook. Their counter is decorated with old book covers. Maynooth, coolcat90 and I all walked out with an armload of books.

A typical English country pub in Dorney, which is also a conservation area, just next to Eton.
