Inn signboard

The signboard hanging outside The Golden Lion has been deteriorating over the last few years, and we have now taken it down to prevent any further damage.

The signboard hanging by one corner

The bottom of the sign has been disintegrating for many years

Friends of the Golden Lion had discussions with the council’s conservation officer and we agreed that the sign needed to come down, as it was in a precarious position, hanging by one corner, and could fall at any time.

Attaching a rope to the sign to prevent it falling

Even though the sign is in a bad state of repair it would be unfortunate if it fell and broke up even more.

Mission successful!

The sign is now going to be cleaned and will be on display at our talk for Birmingham Heritage Week 2018.

Just fits in the boot of my car.
