Street clutter reaches Clun

The other day Eric Pickles and Philip Hammond wrote to council leaders calling on them to reduce the number of signs, railings, bollards and advertising hoardings.

They should go to Clun, where this magnificent collection of signs can be found next to the bridge. Note that the corners of some of them have been curled round by passing lorries.

The Shropshire Star recently photographed the same scene.

That's actually quite tidy and pretty informative. Looks like an Italian set up. Some distances wouldn't go amiss though.

Hold on a sec, are not these signs a result of Thatcher's car obsessed and anti town & transport planning economy?
