The black and white wrought iron fences at road junctions and bends in Cheshire have been a unique and distinctive road safety feature of the local highways since 1929. Time, neglect and road accidents have taken their toll and many of these fences will never be replaced.

As Cheshire is a county of wealth (unfortunately not me) thankfully some of our more responsible village communities have taken pride of their local landscape and heritage and some of the existing railings have been maintained or replaced. New build housing estates are adding the black and white railings to give them the..."Cheshire look"
