28 Sept: Cockermouth and Ambleside

The last image is an AA Emergency Box (#487) located on Dunmail Raise in Cumbria. It’s quite a find because they’re rare and Grade II listed structures. For a little more info … It’s interesting.

The second to last image is a “ghost sign” which is an advertisement associated with a building or shop that no longer exists, but the sign lives on. More info

The 4th image is my husband, Peder. I couldn’t coax any strangers to stand under the flood water sign for me. (no, of course I’m not serious … 😂 )

  1. Those old signs are superb. Our village has one on the side of a house for a butcher’s shop, gone long before we arrived in ’99.

    1. I wasn’t aware that ghost signs had such a following until I researched them a bit.

      1. Certainly in our village, it’s interesting that a village which now supports one shop, basically, used to suppoirt a whole food industry.

    1. Fletcher’s Fearless Clothing shop no longer exists. Only the sign painted on the building remains. That’s why they’re called ‘ghost signs’.
