Cheshire Country Fire Brigade Fire Hydrant

This Cheshire Country Fire Brigade Fire Hydrant cover is at the junction of Hoviley and Commercial Street just below the bridge over Godley Brook as seen in the photograph posted on Hyde DP Xtra on 26th September.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. Fire hydrants are in the pavement there? That's unusual.

  2. Most of them are in the ground in Australia too but I think the plates are smaller than this.

  3. This is mo than wonderful. Makes me think I should look down more often. But I'm not going to see anything this old or this beautiful.

  4. For me that's a rare sight. Fire hydrants are above ground here.

  5. wow, i've never seen them in the ground like do the dogs know where to potty?!

    1. similar but not as big - a manhole has to be big enough for a man to get down - this is big enough only to allow access the hydrant below.

  7. Old cast iron covers are a wonderful find. Tom The Backroads Traveller
