Goathland sign plan
The plan we worked from.
Adapted from a similar plan of the original Stainmore sign.
Once the steel had been cut to size a template was acquired and used to mark out the lettering. Initially chalked on then laboriously pop marked every 15mm by Nick Hutchinson prior to cutting out.

Trial assembly to check everything fits together correctly, drill the bolt holes and fit the bolts.
