My Top Favourites.

 

My all time favourite is "The Three Swans" sign on this famous old 16th century coaching inn at Market Harborough, in Leicestershire.

 The "Fox and Hounds" sign at Lower Harlestone, just North of Northampton, always makes me smile.

I just love the role reversal of the fox controlling the hounds.

I really enjoy looking at "The Romping Cat" sign at Old Woods in Shropshire.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Otter's Pocket" at Stamford in Lincolnshire is another that I really like.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Ducking Stool", at Leominster in Herefordshire is bound to raise a smile!

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

In a more serious mood, I am very fond of "The Royal Children" sign in Nottingham.

Commemorating the story about the children of Princess Anne, the daughter of King James II. In 1688 she and the children took refuge in Nottingham when the King's throne was in trouble, and were accommodated in the old Inn that stood on this site.

 

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Leaking Tap", in Cockshutt, Shropshire, is reputed to be so called because the landlord made his money as a plumber and then invested it into the pub!

 I love this one from Liverpool, from my friend "Digirose" of Flickr fame.

 

 

The Empire, Hanover Street, Liverpool.
