Any Ideas

7 posts in this topic

Went to Eckington today and had cause to pass what was the Prince of Wales Pub and I spotted this informative sign on the wall above the door but I don't know what it indicates, anyone have any idea what it points to?

Presumably an early fire hydrant sign the distance to it?

That was my first thought but what's the significance of the "V".

anyone else having problems posting ?

for what it's worth, this is what I was trying to post on Wednesday:

I'd say it's something similar to a Fire Hydrant

I initially thought it might be V for Vent as in sewer vent, but then I found this website (scroll down near the bottom) which suggests it could be an old Fire Hydrant sign or maybe a Valve for the water main

I'm satisfied that it DOES mean Valve, so problem solved, thanks to unrecordings.
