As we journeyed from Cornwall to Scotland on our recent Grand Adventure, I started to notice something, which made me start to take pictures. I started seeing very interesting signs. Everywhere. And then once I started noticing a few, I started to notice more. Some were funny; some were dark. But what surprised me, especially about the ones warning of danger, was how specific they were. Usually, when you see a danger sign here in the US – it’s one of those A-frame plastic signs set up that says warning in English and Spanish. They’re not very specific. In Britain, the signs get specific. So, here’s a picture post of the most interesting signs I came across – there were a few I couldn’t get a picture of – but Toni Hargis wrote a similar article a few weeks ago that mention them!
This handy sign… probably saves them a lot of questions. But I loved that they didn’t have WiFi and simply tell you to enjoy the view. More of that is needed!
Loved all the stickers on the sign at John O’Groats – I wonder if they clean them off regularly?
For stick figure man, he gets put through the ringer in the following pictures. Located at Urquhart Castle in Scotland.
Don’t climb the trebuchet – located at Urquhart Castle in Scotland.
He just walked right off without stopping! Located at Urquhart Castle in Scotland.
Located on the deck at HMY Britannia in Edinburgh.
I found this one amusing because my best friend’s name is Chad. I’m sure there’s an interesting story as to why there is a St Chad.
Apparently, they still plan for horse-drawn carriages in York.
This sign in Port Issac gave me pause because we’re from Chicago and apparently there is a flat with that name in the village where they film Doc Martin.
This is apparently such a problem in Port Issac that a local child has made a hilariously graphic sign about it.
Poor stick figure man! Can’t stay out of trouble.
Or away from cliffs (don’t worry, I was at a safe distance – thanks zoom lens!)
