    I am trying to find out what this local sign is referring to: Motor Accident Shelsley January 1906. Any information gratefully received. Thank you.

      Hi Cathy, Do you mean the sign a little way off the roadside on the right of the Bromyard Road as you go down the bank on towards Stanford Bridge? We do not have any info but will ask a few contacts to see if we can find out.

      • admin says

        One of our local contacts had this information to add:
        ‘The sign is located at the side of the road on a bank known locally as the Sturt. My Gran used to talk of this and say it related to the first fatal motor accident in Worcestershire involving a car running away down the Sturt. What truth there is to this I don’t know. For many years Mr Sid Pugh and his son used to paint it up from time to time. They lived just across the field at a place known as Birds Green but are long gone’.
