What is it? A signpost on the Erewash Canal, that's what

Again KevinTOO is first with the answer.

It's a signpost just above Sandiacre Lock on the Erewash Canal, at the junction with the derelict Derby Canal.

I quite like the silhouette version.

Brian of nb Harnser says that the sign was paid for by people who include readers of this blog. Brian, I assume that includes you, so thank you. It is a fine sign.

Via Mike Casswell on the canals-list, a link to an explanation of the origin of the signpost:

"GIG98" was one of an annual weekend gathering of participants in the canals-list and uk.rec.waterways.
