Another really nice find, Lisl!
Lisl: Yes, there are one or two of these old road signs around here. I guess most have been obliterated or the walls knocked down over the years, Elizabeth

Mangotsfield ...sounds a delightful place to a rural abode in.....
Lisl: Doesn't it just - comes from Welsh "maen - coed - fille" which means "place of stone in a wood on a hill
A fine old sign that is clearly being looked after Lisl
Lisl: Yes - I have seen it painted up at least twice

Its lovely to see these old signs still retained and cared for.
Lisl: Bristol has quite a few. Suzanne lives at Oldland
I do like these old signs Elisabeth.
Lisl: Me, too - I must photograph more of them
very neat and tidy, Lisl. inspiration for the facebook poke?
Lisl: Not sure what that is, Ayush?
This is one of the things I LOVE about your country, Lisl!!! I immediately thought of the sign to Jack and Jill Hill when we were in Kilmersdon last year.
Lisl: Of course, Ginnie, I remember

Just follow the hand, Lisl.
In Dutch we would say: "Follow your nose".......
Lisl: We say that too, Astrid

And is it still valid? Has 'Oldland' become 'Very Oldland' in the meantime?
Lisl: Oldland has now split into Oldland and Oldland Common, but I like your comment
