ABC Wednesday: N is for No

This sign is at the entrance to Gower Hey Wood from Balmoral Avenue. Underneath is a notice made by pupils of the nearby Dowson Primary School which reads "We like dogs but we don't like their mess". Below that is a request not to leave litter.

Now hang on a minute; this is the UK not the USA; guns here are illegal anyway, so why the need to specifically ban them here?

  1. 'no tipping'? Does that mean dumping trash? in the US, tipping means giving money for a service, such as to waiter after a meal.

  2. Oh dear! And it looks like it would be such a lovely walk for the dogs. If only people would clean up their dogs' messes, there'd be no need for signs like this. Have a great week,

  4. Perhaps they bought a 'job lot' of signs from the U.S. going cheap?!!

  6. How interesting a sign. Maybe a few people were hunting.
    Please have a good Wednesday.

  7. I'm with the hunting notion too, they do fox hunt in England don't they??

  8. Maybe cow tipping isn't welcome there - an interesting sign...leads to all sorts of thoughts. :) Nice post!

  9. Interesting sign, not only are firearms mostly illegal, but if the police see you with one you are seriously likely to be taken out by them and I do not mean for a burger and a beer.

  10. I wonder what is in the fourth line that have been covered up, just "NO"!

  11. Definitely a bit random 'no firearms' unless they have a particular problem with armed robbers in this area..!
