Street Heritage


Apparently there’s a movement to reduce the clutter of street furniture (roadsigns, etc.) on the streets of York [I’ll have to remember to update that link tomorrow as, though stories are archived, they gain a new URL which isn’t linked to when the story is current. grrr]. Now I agree many of these signs aren’t needed and others could be combined and better designed but I’ve been aware of the English Heritage (poorly accessible site—in that it think it just dumps Firefox and Mozilla into the text only version—by the way) for a while and remember thinking to myself at the time I first heard of it…how long until we have streets protected for there vanishing and important street historic furniture?

Edit: Link updated to a (hopefully) more permanent URL.
