Still in use today is this sign post that bears the scars of a bullet hole from an air raid one night during WW2. If you look half way down on the black part of the post you can see the hole which is about the size of a man’s fist.

    What an amazing bit of History Trish I find this type of shot so interesting, Is it Somerset District Council?

  • It was Somerset County Council, then went to Avon and now it’s North Somerset. I love history that involves real people rather than all the Kings, Queens and dates :-)
