The new ‘gateway’ signs have been placed at nine places on main roads leading into Charnwood by the borough council. They feature a picture of Old John Tower at Bradgate Park.

Coun Hillary Fryer, cabinet member for cleansing and open spaces, said: “The new road signs give a really warm welcome to Charnwood and feature one of the borough’s most well-known sights.

“I am delighted to see them put up.”

Coun Stephen Hampson, cabinet member for leisure and culture, has also been involved in the project.

He said: “I’m really pleased to see the signs in place, providing a fitting gateway to the wonderful borough of Charnwood.”

The first sign was put up on the A6 at Birstall.

Road signs for the entrances to Loughborough are also planned.
