Town Centre, Bury Saint Edmunds: 3 reviews and 8 photos
This thing looking like a model lighthouse is a real traffic sign. It needed a special permission when it was installed in 1935 as the letters deviated from the norm. It's unique ? although I am not yet sure, if I like this thing or not. It looks strange on the former market place (now just a glorified car park), in front of a Gothic gatehouse. In 1998, it became grade II listed and is believed to be the UK's first internally illuminated traffic sign.
Directions: Angel Hill, right in front of the Abbey Gate
