PhotoHunter: sign

Yet again a difficult theme, but I've been intrigued by this Pudding Lane road sign for some time.

Of course Pudding Lane was where the Great Fire of London started in 1666, in the bakery. So off I went down Pudding Lane to see what was there.

So it was a delight to find the first house was called "The Old Bakery". The origins of "Laundry Cottage" are obvious., as I suppose "Poachers Paradise" is too, but I'm not sure why "Christmas Cottage" came into being.

This Pudding Lane is considerably more attractive than the one in London is now, so I set off on a short walk.

And I spotted a sign in a clearing in the woods.


And there I found what has to be an unusual sign by anyone's definition. I have never seen a stag beetle refuge before, let alone a signpost so that they know where to find it!

  6. Maybe Christmas Cottage is so named because its residents moved in there on Christmas day -- or have a particular love for December 25th? :)

    And to have an old bakery in Pudding Lane. It just figures, doesn't it? :b
