Here is an interesting road sign in Port Augusta South Australia 300 km (186miles) north of Adelaide Perth is 2,388 km (1483 miles) and Darwin is 2,723km (1692miles) From Nottingham this distance

How about this one from Wollaston.

That bush needs a bit of a trim.

re #29. Further up Pemberton St (to the left of this picture) there are more steps - that's where you'll find Long Stairs!

Short Stairs leads to Short Hill (it is), which leads onto a street called simply Hollowstone. Then we've got High Pavement, Middle Pavement and Low Pavement! And where Boots once had a factory - Pennyfoot Street.

And isn't there a Knicker Hill somewhere out Loughborough way?

We had a caravan at Skeggy for a few years and travelling there most weekends from West Mid's used to take us between 3/4 hrs depending on the traffic. One of the routes we took used to pass Labour In Vain Drove, I had forgotten it until I saw Stevens post. I used to love to see all the bikes and the riders congregating at Skeggy Babs, I hope the weather is good for your reunion.

Of course, there was an one time a railway station called Twenty on the late-lamented Midland and Great Northern Joint. It was between Bourne and Spalding, and I think served a hamlet of the same name, where the line crossed the 20 foot drain. The following station was called Counterdrain.
