You Have Been Warned.
At the far end of Weston there is a bridge taking a stream under the road; these days it is little more than a culvert. The owner of the adjacent property has kept this old sign on the wall beside the bridge and I love it. Today everything is very precise and specific: maximum gross vehicle weight, axle weight, width, vehicle size, time, return time – we have them all. Former times were much more advisory, “carrying great weight” well how heavy is that on a ” locomotive “? It’s all down to you matey; you drive it, you break it, you pay.
