I could see slight justification if the locks weren't in sight and it was aimed at walkers.   However that is ridiculous.

I wish you hadn't shown me that so soon after I'd paid my licence...! :banned:

Its not aimed at licence payers. Its there for freeloaders, especialy cyclists who contribute nowt to anything other than basic taxes so they know which way to go to be completely flat for the longest distance 😎

Some would be improved by being in that position.

Yeah we know, very good, so do I but we all pay extra for stuff we use, even anglers but cyclists pay diddly squatt to anything and in wet weather for instance destroy towpath surfaces in many locations.

indeed another useless sign which, like many others will become defunct, as per this recent item in the national press

 

RIDERLESS bicycles free of dangerous knobheads in lycra will soon be a reality, scientists believe. 

Artificial intelligence will soon make the sanctimonious, above-the-law tossers currently mounted atop bicycles a thing of the past.

A spokesman said: “The ecological ideal of the self-operating bike, free of the tit in the saddle, once seemed the stuff of science fiction.

 

Our riderless bike will not run red lights, stays off the pavement, respects other road users and never provokes arguments which it later self-righteously posts on YouTube.

 

blue touch paper now smoldering...

CaRT claim that a quarter of their income is from boaters, so we paid for one side of that sign. If you look very carefully there is a mooring bollard icon on the side facing the water to let you know there are mooring bollards there, just in case you haven't seen them, what with them being painted white. The far side no doubt says "Away From the Locks" as @Bod reckons. The left hand side says "To the Water, Where It Is Better By".

They missed a trick, 'cause the top doesn't say "To the Ground" and buried in the concrete it might not say "To the Sky".

I'm annoyed i didn't take photos from all angles now!
