Ride with Caution

Cast iron signs! I love ‘em! I love them particularly if they state the obvious. This one is at North Rode in Cheshire.


I took this in 2003 and whilst I remember the sign, I can’t now say why it was there. However, it looks as though there is a steep descent ahead – steep enough for the National Cyclists Union to invest money in a sign. One hopes, of course, that cyclists exercise caution all of the time – along with all other road users, whether a Rode road or elsewhere.

We were in North Rode seeking out family history. Various distant and some not so distant relatives of my wife were born there and lived there.

So we looked around the churchyard and came across this grave.

In fact we recorded several graves and none of them led to a family link. But like so many of our family history places, it was a lovely location and a delightful visit.
