Signpost report

This article is from Signpost, Autumn 2013

Six signposts have been erected since my last report in May; three (443, 445, 447) are in more distant parts and three in our core area :
443 at SK290424, Inn Farm, Weston Underwood, which is on the Kedleston Estate close to Derby is now our most southeasterly sign.
444 at SK095821, Rushup Hall, Chapel en le Frith in memory of Hilda Sanders.
445 at SK342571, Holly Grange Farm, Lea east of Cromford, suggested by our inspector Ted Roadhouse.
447 at SD585313, Brockholes Nature Reserve, Preston, to be financed by Shirley Northcott.
448 and 449 at SK036779 and 038779, Hay Lee Farm, Combs

Seven more are destined for outlying areas which I will report on in the next Newsletter.

Thanks to the fine weather, I also managed a good deal of maintenance :

Two RA signs on Anglezarke Moor and one Sheffield Co-op RC sign were repainted. They are rare and worth preserving.
387 at Thrushgill near Ingleton, had its two vandalised plaques replaced.
433 near Lamaload, Rainow, had a plaque added in memory of Harry Sutcliffe, who is now commemorated on three of our signposts.
147 at Goytsclough Bridge was relettered and 151 at East Lodge, Lyme Park comprehensively repainted.
103 by the A54 near Danebower, which had fallen over, has been shotblasted and repainted prior to re-posting.
156 in Wildboarclough is getting a new signpost plate, as the original, which was very thin, had corroded badly.
The memorial to Thomas Boulger by Bridge 1 at Carr Meadow is undergoing restoration by inspector Nick Outteridge and John Hodgson.
You can find Thomas’s obituary on our website in the 1962 Annual Report, pages 6-7. His 42 years service to PNFS is remarkable.
