The Victorians set their subbing errors in stone

Anyone wanting to take us back to the solid Victorian values of the three “R”s in education should take pause. If you take a turn round the duck pond in Bath’s delightful Victoria Park, you’ll come across this handsome piece of Victorian sculpture – an urn commemorating the anniversary of the opening of the park in 1880. Or, as this stonemason would have it, the opening of the “Rark”.

It makes me feel a bit better about the current council’s inability to proofread its roadsigns anyway…
