    I guess that when you are not making family homes with gardens then you can afford to build on contaminated land.

    Can anyone nick me the NORTON FOR CRAP signs? They'll be worth a fortune

    It's funny how names like that stick. I once gave my mate directions and told him by the Norton for Scrap' place - he even said 'oh is that by the Norton for Crap sign!

    The original signs on the wall may already have been taken off??
    The new advertising for sale sign is over the same area so you cant see NORTON FOR SCRAP.
    I remember seeing the picture someone took of the original sign to make it look like NORTON FOR CRAP,i think it was in the echo,someone must have a copy somewhere

    The NORTON FOR SCRAP sign isn't visible now.
    I went yesterday to take a photo.

    Gutted that it's gone. I loved driving past and stopping so the s would be blocked off!!

    Always a good sign to talk about to see how many people knew about it.....
