Signs of the City

Signs of the City


Just over 20 years ago Charnwood invested in a vitreous enamelling plant to enamel our stoves. This side of the business grew and branched out producing a wide range of goods from enamelled baths and cookers through to signage and cladding. To this day our enamelling plant produces much of the signage for London Underground and other transport related companies.

So this month we launch a new website www.signsofthecity.co.uk. Teaming up with Transport For London we now offer the public a chance to buy authentic rail and street signage.

The range includes iconic London Underground Roundels, London Street Signage and Heritage Rail Signage all hand produced in vitreous enamel.

You will be able to choose from a comprehensive list of well known location names or in some cases customise your sign with your own wording.

The launch of the site coincides with 150th year anniversary of the London Underground and the opening of the Camden Town Brewery pop-up at the 2013 London Design Festival’s Design Junction.
