Curious signs on Melbourne FP6

Double FP signs

Melbourne FP6 runs from Cockshut Lane to Derby Road opposite the old Sir Frances Burdett PH.

It makes a useful short cut avoiding a sharp bend in the road.
You can link it with Breach Lane, Poppy Wood and the St. Brides Bridleway to make a return stroll to Melbourne.

Half way across is this curious double sign erected, I guess, in the 1960s when the local Parish Council asked for intermediate signing along the route. It is by the small footbridge.

When I walked it this week the middle section of the path was very wet due to a month of rain.

Beyond this sign the route can be unclear, you have to make for the white Frances Burdett building.
